Community’s Voice was heard. “Bigger and better” things said to be planned for the future.

At press time we learned from an exclusive source that the owner of the former Gi- Gi’s Restaurant building had withdrawn his application with the State Liquor Authority. The move, said the source, means that essentially there will not be a liquor store opening in that location. That will be good news to the hundreds of residents who signed petitions, attended community meetings and who have been protesting the planned liquor store since the rumor was confirmed in May. “Bigger and better plans” for the site are said to be in the works by the owner for the Ferry Jefferson landmark. More details next week.
