I agree with Michael that the best solution is to raze the building and develop a town square. What a great way to bind and build a stronger community than to develop a welcoming place to gather. Imagine grabbing an ice cream at Knudsen's Ice Creamery or Loard's Ice Creamery and then walking over to the town square to sit on the lawn and watch a movie on a warm summer evening. It is a great idea to increase foot traffic and encourage folks to patronize local businesses.

I love the town square idea! Castro Valley is already a great community, like Dorothy said…it would be a great place for everyone to gather together.

People really should check out the Tear down Daughtery's facebook page to see what is being proposed at the MAC meeting. Tearing down the building will free up parking that is vital to the downtown area, and create an amazing space for the community.

Brewpub! Think of how nice B Street is in Hayward with Buffalo Bill's right across from the movie theater and yogurt shops. This is a perfect spot for a brewpub/eatery, with decent walking access to the Chabot theater and the village. It could be a fantastic anchor to the newly revitalized boulevard. I would go there and then to a movie and then to either the Ice Creamery or Loard's for dessert!

We can call the new Castro Valley Town Square "Peoples Park"
