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.
