Petition Started to Stop Wendy's

Roxborough residents have started a petition to stop the construction of a Wendy's at the corner of Roxborough and Ridge avenues.

About 400 Roxborough residents have already signed an oline petition protesting the construction of a Wendy's at the corner of Roxborough and Ridge avenues.

It was announced on Friday that former site of the historic Bunting House would be converted into a Wendy's fast food restaurant.

Hilary Langer who signed the petition at change.org wrote her reasons he didn't want the Wendy's constructed:

Because we do not want generic, drive through, ordinary, bad for you and bad for the neighborhood. The character of Roxborough will not become Anywheresville, USA. Go read about healthy neighborhoods - its about walkability and diversity, not driveability and boring.

Cynthia Leung added:

The neighborhood has worked tirelessly at revitalizing. The addition of a fast food chain restaurant would rob the neighborhood of its remaining charm and prove to be a major setback.

Did you forget that this specific patch is about the pros and cons of a Wendy’s being built at Rox and Ridge? Make your point, then get your lazy asses from behind the computer screen and go out into the world and make a change. If you don't want a Wendy’s, attend meetings, sign the petition, and get your fellow neighbors involved as well. Insulting one another and jumping to conclusions is not solving anything. It is making you people look pathetic. Get positively involved. Ps Joe, with due respect, we are all fully aware now that your dad built in the neighborhood and you collect rent still, thanks.

Thank you Maia for being an intelligent woman who takes control and knows how to make a change. A true leader. You’re a breath of fresh air among these idiots bickering on here. I will use this information and pass it on, thank you.
