CASTRO VALLEY — Instead of the county trying to find a tenant for the long-vacant Daughtrey’s building on Castro Valley Boulevard, a resident is proposing the building be torn down and the space converted into a town square.
The Castro Valley Municipal Advisory Committee will take up the matter at its Tuesday, Feb. 4, meeting.
Peter Rosen sent a letter to the Castro Valley MAC outlining his argument why the former department store should be demolished. The building was purchased by Alameda County with redevelopment funds, but the county has been unable to find a new tenant. Rosen’s letter can be found under agenda at http://www.acgov.org/calendar_app/DisplayDetailServlet?site=Internet&ag=CDA&ty=PLAN&m=1&d=24&y=2014&t=M&i=2014-01-06%2011:22:48.417
Tuesday’s meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the Castro Valley Library, 3600 Norbridge Ave.
