155Re: [carfreesd] Slideshow with main theme of car-related businesses on El Cajon Blvd
- Jan 28, 2009Colin, that's a crazy long walk!!I recently had the same observation about El Cajon Blvd. It is completely automobile-centric and perhaps that has started to shift. I'm certainly not one to revel in someone else's misery but I've got to say I'm happy to see any of those dealerships go away. That corridor could be so much more vibrant with some simple street improvements (trees, better sidewalks, artwork). With a better street presence restaurants could open outdoor dining and other businesses could embrace the sidewalk. There are a couple stretches of El Cajon that actually have a nice feel, right around 30th and again around Fairmount where the Ford Dealership closed. The landscaped medians definitely help.
