Grass Valley Redevelopment

Melanie Wellner writes, "Don't displace locals," July 7, 2005

Some good words of caution about turning Grass Valley in to another tourist mecka.
When I first moved to this area in 1972, I walked the streets of Nevada City and knew I that this was the type of small town in which I wanted to live. There were all the functioning businesses one needs in life - a pharmacy, an auto parts store, a health food store, a fabric store, etc. Now I rarely go to Nevada City. I am not a tourist.
We will hear more complaints about people shopping out of town, if Grass Valley turns it self into another tourist destination, and stops being a center of commerce.
