The Publix Prison

Publix WallPublix may have had a right to build the monstrosity they are building that fronts on Cervantes at 12th Avenue, but they had other choices. They could have abandoned their standard big box design and built something compatible with the neighborhood. Instead they have ruined the neighborhood and created an eyesore for us all to see whenever we drive by on Cervantes Street. It looks like a 40 ft. windowless prison wall built right next to the street. The only thing missing is a chain link fence with razor wire, but there is no room to put it between the building and the sidewalk.

The people with homes across the street now look at the Publix Prison wall…

Publix, like a bad neighbor, is here to stay.
