  • GoHawks! Life Long Resident

    Is somebody going to look into this Arena character now please? He is an arrogant, ignorant, half a**_ shakedown artist which no pull and screws over the smallest or the small business guys by making them use certain attorneys- that tape is headed to the media wise guy!!

  • John Garrido has a far better idea for 5150 N NW Hwy -- fewer stories, more units (all Studio &/or 1-BR), and strictly 62+older senior living. Subsidized or market rate or a mix would work great. Waiting lists at nearby senior living properties top 300 + 500, and all come from within the community, which proves there's a market. Also, many of the seniors have extended family within the community who want them close and safe.
