Submitted Comments:

  • Site 21: The 1st thing you see when you turn onto Railroad and it needs to set a precedence of what Valley Junction should be and transform to.
  • Site 21 is the cornerstone entrance to VJ.
  • Site 23 has plenty of space and is close to the entrance to 5th St. for a signature, complimentary development.
  • Site 23 and Site 1: Great potential for both an existing built project and an innovative new construction project.
  • Site 24: The used car lot has got to go. It is ugly and that space should be utilized better.
  • Site 3 and Site 7: To show a better welcome into Valley Junction.
  • Site 18 and Site 17: Because they are a gateway to Valley Junction. They are not “junky” per se, but also not very welcoming.
