Letter to editor: Retail center good choice

-A +A
Rocklin city council members have approved the development of a 23,600-square-foot retail center on Sierra College Boulevard. I believe that this was a good decision because building those new stores will create new jobs and bring in tax revenue for Placer County. It is also convenient to go shopping for people who live in the rural areas of Loomis and Sierra College. Some people are against it because the removal of the oak tress, but there are plenty more land areas around here with old, pretty oak trees that are protected. In conclusion, this area could benefit from this retail shopping center being built because gas is expensive. It’s a pain to drive all the way over to Pleasant Grove Boulevard just to shop at Wal-Mart. The movie theater would be very enjoyable for all ages. Victoria Richards, Rocklin
