Liquor licenses downtown have been handed out like water. It has spread the population base over some streets that now have 11bars in a one block area. New viable bars and restaurants now struggle and compete in an unbelievably saturated market. The same thing is happening in the Highlands. Residents are upset about parking and access to their homes. If this Glendale project goes off as planned it will descimate downtown. I like the idea and the fact that Glendale is pretty much the Vatican City right now,but do we need it? It will do what the Gaylord Mega Complex intended to do. Crush downtown. When does it stop? I'm a transplant and have been here over 25 years. Back in the day there were a handful of bars and clubs that owned a certain night of the week. I think we are expanding beyond our means and trying in the wrong ways to be a much larger city than we are. Maybe a million people moving here will justify this kinda growth.... But do we really want that? Let's slow down a bit and focus on what we still have left. I wake up every day with fresh unjaded eyes and wish everyone else could do the same. It's gonna be gone before we know it.
