My family moved to Greendale in 1959. At that time, the "downtown" area boasted a grocery store, drug store, deli, hardware store, etcetera. It was truly a community. Then it was turned into an upscale strip mall. The last time the Village was "remodeled", all the charm was leeched away. Now this? Please, leave it alone!

I live near the Safety Center and the streets are filled with cars of people going to the open house. Expect it to be a full house!

"Last time the village was remodeled, atl the charm was leeched away." Really? Are you referring to the 'charming' state of our village in the 1990's, before Roy Reiman came in and remodeled (rescued) it? From what I recall, there wasn't much charm left in the village prior to the remodel. http://greendale.patch.com/articles/the-evolution-of-greendales-original-businesses I trust our village officials are thoroughly researching what will be best for the future of the downtown area. Why would they want to do anything less? It wouldn't be much of a legacy for them, not to mention they are residents here too. We all want what is best for the village. Sure, change is scary - but it can be a GOOD thing if we all work together!
