Restaurant’s expansion a safety hazard

I can’t believe the French Alpine Bistro received permission to build and built an entire new restaurant. It takes up curb space, handicap and regular parking.

Driving past there is more difficult (have to cross the yellow lines) for cars, trucks (there are many) and buses. It is unsafe.

I guess the other restaurants just have to suck up the inequity.

Editor’s note: The city also allowed other businesses the same opportunity provided they pay their own expenses, like French Alpine Bistro did.
