About 50 people packed the Central Avenue Bakery for the second Coffee Shop Talk, a new event giving residents who don’t always show up at City Council meetings a chance to ask tough questions or simply make their points in an atmosphere without overhead projectors, gavels or microphones.
One topic was a proposed new farmers market for Lighthouse Avenue.
“I am at a loss to know why the city wants to have a farmer’s market,” resident Ellen Coile said. “We need another farmers market in this area like we need another golf course.”
. . or like we need another art gallery or Mexican restaurant.
Another meeting is scheduled for August 13, 6:30 p.m. at Black Forest Espresso in the Country Club Gate Shopping Center.
