Pat Roberts replied to Rick Stockwood's discussion JP for All declines JPNC Whole Foods Ad Hoc Invitation
"Why do we still have a neighborhood council?  It's time for the JP Neighborhood Council to take its place on the dustbin of history with all the other organizations that former mayors have created, like the Little City Halls which preceded…"

Pat Roberts replied to Dave Demerjian's discussion JPNC seeking community members to join Whole Foods ad hoc committee
"Are these Neighborhood Council people delusional?  They still haven't acknowledged that there is a legal agreement between the owner of the property and the owner of the grocery store.  They keep talking about an "outcome for the…"

Pat Roberts commented on Liz W.'s event State of Our Neighborhood: A Community Conversation
"And we would want to go to this so we could get a chance to listen to more of the same as we heard at such length in the recent meeting about Whole Foods?  Same sponsors, same issues. We already know what's going to be said."

Pat Roberts commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post Whole Foods official announces it's opening a store in Jamaica Plain
"Dave, it's none of your business how much money was involved in the business deal between Hi-Lo and Whole Foods.  Hil-Lo has the right to sell or rent its property for whatever the market will bear, and Whole Foods has the right to buy or…"

Pat Roberts commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post Whole Foods official announces it's opening a store in Jamaica Plain
"Dave, I read a quote from you in the Herald that said Whole Foods would probably need permits from the city for various things as they set up their operation, with the implication that you all (Neighborhood Council and other groups) would be waiting…"

Pat Roberts commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post Whole Foods official announces it's opening a store in Jamaica Plain
"Andrew, if you are concerned about the possibility of increased traffic when Whole Foods moves into the Hi-Lo space, then probably wanting them to host a farmer's market in their parking lot is not the most useful thing to advocate for, since…"

Pat Roberts commented on Robbie Samuels's blog post Where will the Latino and Caribbean JP residents who counted on Hi-Lo as an institution for 47 years get the items they need that can't be easily found in Boston?
"Jennie, quite a few of the businesses in JP are not family-run and local, starting with Hi-Lo, whose owners are in Newton.  Harvest Coop is not a local or family-run business, and neither is Stop & Shop.  And I'm sure you realize…"

Pat Roberts commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post Whole Foods official announces it's opening a store in Jamaica Plain
"David, here are a couple of links that corroborate what I said--that Tony Harnett bought a natural foods store in Brookline called Bread and Circus.  He and his wife didn't start…"

Pat Roberts commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post Whole Foods official announces it's opening a store in Jamaica Plain
"I have noticed a couple of comments that Whole Foods "took over" Bread and Circus.  That's not what happened, and I think to characterize the situation that way doesn't help the conversation.  Actually, Tony Harnett…"

Pat Roberts commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post What impacts should be considered and what should the community process look like if Whole Foods is really planning to move into JP?
"Thanks, Brett and Sarah.  Robbie, if you feel it's so bad for middle-class people to move to JP because they will gentrify it, then why did you move here?  And should we try to prevent more middle-class people from moving here and…"

Pat Roberts commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post What impacts should be considered and what should the community process look like if Whole Foods is really planning to move into JP?
"Another possibility is for a store selling the Hi-Lo product line to use one of the retail spaces that are available in the Blessed Sacrament development that the NDC is working on.  The NDC is also building a big apartment building at…"

Pat Roberts commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post What impacts should be considered and what should the community process look like if Whole Foods is really planning to move into JP?
"Don't worry, Whit.  The local Politburo will indeed form a committee, they will have a list of requirements Whole Foods must follow, and they will expect to be listened to, because they are "speaking for the people", and in JP,…"

Pat Roberts commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post Hi-Lo to close: Whole Food to move in
"JP has many chain stores:  Citizens Bank, Bank of America, Dunkin Donuts, Stop & Shop, Tedeschi's Food Stores, etc.  So an argument that a chain store shouldn't move in doesn't make any sense.  I agree that it would…"

Pat Roberts commented on Joseph Porcelli (Chief Neighbor)'s blog post Whole Foods or Trader Joe's: We have voice, let it be heard!!
