It has recently been announced that a new restaurant may be built in your neighborhood. Do you support or oppose this plan? Why? Use specific reasons and detailsto support your answer.
I can see both advantages and disadvantages to having a new restaurant built in ourneighborhood. I'm worried about traffic and how it will affect our neighborhood. However, Ithink that it will benefit local businesses and increase appreciation for our neighborhood.Overall, I think it is a good idea.
Traffic congestion is always a concern when you build something new. Our streets arenarrow, with parking on both sides. More cars traveling through the neighborhood couldcause a lot of congestion. Traffic means parking problems, too. Our neighborhood has veryfew garages attached to the houses. Most of us depend on finding a space to park on thestreet. If the new restaurant is built, we'll be competing for those spaces with the restaurant'spatrons. Plus, if the restaurant offers valet parking, it'll be even worse. Valet parkers work inteams to grab every possible space available on the street.
I'm also concerned about the type of patrons this new restaurant will bring into ourneighborhood. A family restaurant wouldn't be a problem. However, if it's going have a barand dancing, then there could be problems. The restaurant would stay open later, and peopleleaving the restaurant might be drunk. Who wouldn't worry about rowdy customers staggeringaround our neighborhood in the early morning hours, looking for their cars?
I have to admit, though, there are advantages to a new restaurant. Our neighborhoodcould certainly use the jobs the restaurant would provide. Not only that, the moneyneighborhood residents would earn there would likely be spent at other neighborhoodbusinesses. This would give a boost to those businesses and make our neighborhood moreprosperous.
A new restaurant would also attract a lot of people to our neighborhood. They could seewhat a nice area this is to live. That might attract new residents to the neighborhood. Thatwould be a good thing, because we've been losing residents to the suburbs the last couple of
There are a lot of details to consider, but all in all, I support the idea of this new restaurantin our neighborhood.
