Neighbors living nearby the future home of Deep South Taco are concerned about noise issues. Therefore, Council Member Joel Feroleto and Hertel North Buffalo Business Association will be hosting a community meeting for residents in order to discuss the pros (countless) and the cons (noise issues) of the development. Richard Hamilton, owner of Deep South Taco, stated that he feels that he is doing the best of his ability to bring a quality business to the street, in place of a vacant, derelict gas station. Hamilton purchased the property after conducting extensive searches throughout the city.
“One of the main things that attracted me to the Hertel area is the passion and individuality expressed in the area,” said Hamilton. “That is obviously driven by diverse people and cultures. Differences of opinion are bound to occur. But if we can sit, treat each other respectfully and respect one another’s views, I’m certain we can find common ground. If there is an alternate agenda, other than the current ones represented, then no movement will happen because the varying agendas compete. To me it’s simple – you either want a new restaurant that’s clean and will have positive impact on the neighborhood, or a rundown empty gas station where people conduct illicit activities. What’s going to do more for property values? We’re cleaning up the corner, environmentally and aesthetically, and turning it into a prime example of sensitive development that is oriented towards helping to make Hertel Avenue a top-tier destination.”
Let’s hope that this community meeting attracts enough people who see the overall benefits of this project.
