LETTER: Enough with the banks and car washes

Like a (scene) from Breaking Bad, banks and car washes are popping up all over Cache Valley. There have been 3 new banks and 3 new car washes in 2020 alone.

There are an estimated 23 banks from Hyrum to Smithfield on Main street alone, with 6 banks on 1400 N. Apparently the only people making money are banks and car washes. Cache Valley enough with the banks and car washes.

Please put a moratorium on these facilities now! We don’t need anymore banks or car washes in this valley, we need dining establishments and good ones. The Logan City Council should be petitioning big chain restaurants, like Red Robbin, Red Lobster, Zupas, a good steak house, and another option for Italian other then Olive garden. Logan Calls them selves a Foody valley but this is not true in the least bit.

By petitioning and giving tax breaks and grants to those businesses Cache Valley could thrive even more then it does now. Issuing more liquor licenses to those business that desire it.

    What are you talking about? I never have to wait in line at a bank or a car wash here. How about the city trying to fill all of these empty anchor store spaces. Then why we are at it. How about an honest honky tonk, where we can actually dance. We are being californicated, before you know it Smith’s will be selling vodka 24/7. Just like they do in California. The banks are just being foresighted.

    Foodies don’t eat from chain restaurants. There are quite a number of great restaurants here in Cache Valley that are run by their owners! Look outside of the chains and you’ll find gold.

    It’s like you read my mind, I totally agree! I think we are all good on banks and car washes. We live in a desert, those car washes are so wasteful and such an eyesore.

    Maybe you should try some new places to eat other than chain restaurants and you’ll see there are some amazing eateries here in the valley.
    Who goes to Olive Garden when there is Callaway’s and Le Nonne?? Support the locals…
    All of our small businesses are going under because most want to eat at chains like Red Robin! 🤮

    Seems to me that if you own the land, put up the risk starting a business that you should have the right to do it. Those who do not like it should buy land, put out the money, assume the risk and build what YOU want!

      How dare you use logic in this day and age
