Although it was not unanimous, the board recently voted to submit a letter of support to city council for the Route 40 development.
Route 40 will be located at Colfax Ave. and Corona St., the current location of the Smiley’s Laundromat building. While a number of preservationists
oppose the demolition of the existing building, the prevailing opinion of residents is that the existing building is not a model of the art deco style and
does not contribute to the character of the neighborhood.
Please review the Route 40 Fact Sheet and our letter to city council below for more information.
