We have a serious problem in Parkland. I don’t know why every restaurant I fall in love with ends up closing its doors after a couple of years. My wife loved the I (Heart) Mac & Cheese in Parkland Commons. Now it’s gone. Before that I use to take my nieces and nephews to Sub Zero Ice Cream and that’s gone too. Not to mention Bahama Grill.
All the stores on 441 are forced to fight against the current because of sign restrictions and set back requirements. Why hasn’t something been done to help our businesses? I shouldn’t have to go to Coconut Creek or Coral Springs to get a meal or service when we have so many vacant spots in Parkland. Business revenue not only increases our quality of life but it also can help pay for our city.
As a business owner I can appreciate what many of the companies are experiencing, especially during this difficult time. We need to support them:
Honestly, if what we are doing is not working, we need to do something else. By investing in businesses now, we are investing in the future of Parkland.
