Polls: What Should Happen With The Old Daughtrey Building?

What should be done with the building and what business would you like to see go in the facility that has been closed for most of the past 20 years

The county's redevelopment agency continues to search for a tenant for the old Daughtrey Building.

A story on the Castro Valley Forum says county officials are considering tearing down the facility at 3295 Castro Valley Boulevard.

The former department store has sat vacant for most of the past two decades. The redevelopment agency purchased the property in April 2010 for $2.8 million.

We have two questions: What do you think should be done with the current building? Remodel or demolition?

Also, what type of business would you like to see on that property?

Vote in both polls and then tell us more about your selections in our comments section.

I meant to add a link to the page on HPB.com where you can inform them of great locations. http://www.hpb.com/feedback/ The dropdown menu includes options for Real Estate/ location suggestions. I hope others will see the benefit that this would be and join me in asking HPB to consider opening a store here!

We have a brand new library, why not use that?

Libraries are great. Some of us still like to own books.

A major problem appatently is that the county seems to be not too friendly when it comes to new businesses moving into or being created in Castro Valley. Case in point: the diner at Yeandle and the Boulevard. My understanding is that it is stalled by lack of county permit approval. I have heard comments from other businessmen in the area that support this. It seems that, unless you have an Asian restaurant, it is somewhat difficult to locate in Castro Valley due to the attitide of the county officials. I have no concrete proof, just a lot of comments.
