To the Editor:
I’m writing this letter in support of Mesa Development’s plans for the Vue53 project. As a somewhat newer resident to the neighborhood, I have become acutely aware of the need for additional providers of goods and services throughout the community. My family has become far too accustomed to making the trek north to Roosevelt Road for many of life’s most basic needs. I believe that continued development on 53rd Street and elsewhere in Hyde Park by firms of Mesa’s pedigree will help to stimulate jobs, sales taxes, property values and overall quality of life for all neighborhood residents. I am very confident that memories of the gas station, car wash and ugly asphalt parking lot will vanish in a minute upon this development’s completion.
Hyde Park is a wonderful, unique, tight knit neighborhood which is the reason my family chose to relocate here from the North Side. However, embracing positive change will only enhance these attributes and ensure they continue indefinitely. Please join in support of Mesa.
Meredith Oliver and family.
