      Saying he was “unencumbered by the past,” Councilman Gil Cedillo today came out againstdeclaring Highland Park’s Superior Market, considered a prime example of mid-century “Googie” style architecture, a city historic landmark.
      City staff, the Cultural Heritage Commission as well as two neighborhood councils had supported declaring the Figueroa Street market a cultural historic landmark, which would help protect the building’s exterior from changes that would impact its historic character. Superior Grocer’s proposed revamp would alter the store’s facade of broad windows and swooping arches. But Cedillo, whose opposition will be hard to overcome, said he had to look beyond the concerns of preservationists.

        Looks like the councilmember listened to many in the community that cried about how supermarket poor the area is.   And, that is the truth.   That probly outweighted the concerns about a historical building.   It is true that our neighborhoods need better supermarkets.    That is an issue that is being addressed.  Which is more important a historical building or better markets?    The community cried out that better markets are more important.   And, looks like Councilmember Gil Cedillo listened.

          I'd like an honest question do we want to save all markets ie Vons Shoppers because of their looks or because of a childhood memory. My old man took us shopping there because it was brand new. Hey I even remember the shopping carts had a kind of brake to keep the cart from rolling down hill.

          What am I missing. The issue here is the façade of the building. This market should be improved by having a better selection of food and having the inside

            What am I missing.  The issue here is the façade of the building.   This market should be improved by having a better selection of food and having the inside uncluttered.  What has that got to do with getting rid of the Googie façade?  how does changing the style of the building add to the supermarkets in the neighborhood.

              Elections matter, folks.  When people think all politicians are the same, remember this. Cedillo was in Sacramento for so long that when he heard about this, who do you think he sided with?  Neighborhood activists who mostly supported his opponent or the big money lobbyists?
