I woukd like to know what the plan is to get some restaurants back in our city? We've lost big ones: Max's, Chili's, Chevy's, Applebees and Giuseppe's. The Max's building has sat empty for almost 4.5 years now. Chevy's and Giuseppe's building also still sit empty.
I know the new City Center will have some restaurants but options to eat elsewhere in our city would be nice. I love living here but it would be nice to have more eating options like we once had.

Those lost restaurants were all victims of corporate decisions or disputes/rent increases with landlords. The city plays no part in landlord tenant issues.

Unfortunately less restaurant options are still a reflection of the city and us residents are still lacking options. I'm sure the city rather have people eating here, not in surrounding cities that might have more options.

A valid point regarding the former Max's Restaurant location, now vacant for almost 4.5 to 5 years. However, I have noticed some signs of life in the past week, in the form of construction fencing and a contractor's mobile office structure. Does anyone know if the project will be a retail entity, or a new restaurant?

It will be an Ulta beauty store.
