So, I normally let Columbia Compass guyspout poetic about matters in Wilde Lake-- it is, after all, his village. However, this article warrants the gaze, and comment, of good ol' MM.
I've been interested in and writing onvarious proposed changes to the Wilde Lake Village Center area for about the lifetime of this blog. What is becoming interesting, if not truly amazing, to me is the change in the attitude of residents towards such changes.
While there appears to be still some trepidation about a village center without a grocery store anchor-- a realistic fear as this had been the hallmark of the Columbia villages for decades-- I find fascinating the fact that more and more residents are warming to the idea of no grocery store anchor. And frankly, the tag team of David's Natural Market and a drug store ought to suffice for the village's needs, and make it a bit of a destination for those not interested in the chain grocery thing.
So I am wondering-- why the changes in residents' thinking? If Wilde Lakers can learn to accept a village center with no grocery store, then surely, so can any village, right? Right???
Readers (and this means YOU, Columbia Compass Guy!!!) weigh in!!! Lots of exclamation points so you know I care!
