Café in New Town Center? Yes or No?
Recently, the Atherton City Council agreed that the new Civic Center would be well served by having a place where local residents can meet, gather and exchange ideas. The Council believes that this informal space could be served by a small cafe - something similar to Ada’s Cafe in Palo Alto. Nothing fancy. Nothing formal. Merely the opportunity to share a cup of coffee or tea, a croissant, or a sandwich.
The space could be an opportunity for local youth employment, a small caterer, a non-profit. The size, location, needs, and design of the space has not yet been worked out; but the Council believes that such a place would conveniently enable residents to meet in Atherton, and that's what a community is all about.
We know there are issues with a commercial business in our town. So if you disagree, now is the time to speak up.
Thanks for letting us know what you think.
