Planning Commission meetings discussing the proposed new Whole Foods are slated for the fall as residents, the Prado Group (the proposed sponsor of the project), and the Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association carefully weigh the pros and cons.
Everything from the design of the building to parking to the potential impact on street traffic is up for debate. Will the new Whole Foods cut into the profits of other local food merchants and grocers? Will bikers on the 14th Street bike lanes be affected when delivery vans pull up to unload goods?
The potential new development of moderate income housing on the lot across the street from the proposed Whole Foods ties into the discussion as well. It’s a complicated discussion that residents are welcome to take part in at the next Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association meeting or go to the Prado Group’s website and share your thoughts on the Community Input page.
