Our next empty lot?
A reader alerted me to this article in the Daily Bulletin about the redevelopment agency seeking to expand Pomona's YMCA. Today's photo of a nicely-tended vintage home accompanies the online article. Will this become yet another vacant lot in Pomona? It is not like there is a shortage of vacant lots already. One reader is already vowing to chain themselves to the house if need be.
When we moved to Pomona, my husband had high hopes of going to the local YMCA to swim and play ball. He quickly discovered that the place was unhygenic. The swimming area, for instance, had carpet nearby, which was always wet, mildewy and went "squish" when you walked on it. He's hardly the neat freak that I am, so I'm imagining it was pretty gross. I'm thinking that getting some new people in charge at the Y and sprucing the place up inside might be a better solution.
