Yes! to Charles Co.

I got a very pleasant call from La Puente Councilwoman Nadia Mendoza this morning.

She wanted to voice her thoughts on the council’s Monday night decision to go with the Charles Co. (after all) for redevelopment of the former La Puente Lanes bowling alley site.

You may remember the city had been mulling over whether to go with the Charles Co. or a new developer for that site.

Well, according to Mendoza, the council felt going with the Charles Co. was the most “financially responsible” decision.

It’s good to hear that a decision has been made, but it makes me wonder where things go from here. The city was in talks with the Charles Co. for almost a year on this project, they didn’t get very far, mulled a new developer, and then went back to them.

Are we back at square one?

I’ll be following the story in Friday’s paper…
