Regarding Early Stage Stop. This building was the subject of much controversy a few years ago. In one of the attached photos, you can see the Walgreens that was built just behind here. Walgreens had plans to demolish to building for parking space. After much debate and protest, the building was saved, and by all accounts, the Walgreens has plenty of parking. Before the controversy, the building wasn't cared for very well. It had been added to and then additions removed, and evidence was quite visible on the exterior.
