SUPPORT LOCAL MERCHANTS IN RANCHO DEL MAR CENTER

This petition had 565 supporters


Local merchants in Rancho Del Mar Center (Aptos) have just been handed a 30-day eviction notice by property owner TRC Retail in order to extensively remodel the Center.  Merchants had asked repeatedly since community meetings last spring for information about the remodel, trying to plan for their possible relocation and merchandise orders.  No one from TRC ever responded.  TRC Director Mr. Bruce Walton acknowledges that communication with merchants has been problematic due to three property managers in a row quitting the job.  

Now the merchants must quickly find new locations just as the busiest and most lucrative shopping season begins.  Some who hold franchise agreements must first receive approval from the main franchise corporate headquarters before moving or opening at a new location.  WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN FOR LOCAL MERCHANTS NOW BEING TOLD TO LEAVE IN 30 DAYS?  Financial hardship and possible ruin!!  Our Community cannot stand  idle and allow this to happen.

COUNTY SUPERVISOR ZACH FRIEND HAS THE ABILITY TO NEGOTIATE WITH TRC RETAIL TO EXTEND THE TERMINATION AGREEMENTS TO 90 DAYS, just as Watsonville Mayor Felipe Hernandez did for the CrossRoads Center merchants when Kaiser likewise issued 30-day notices.  SIGN THIS PETITION TO LET SUPERVISOR FRIEND KNOW YOU WANT HIM TO TAKE LEADERSHIP AND NEGOTIATE A 90-DAY NOTICE OF TERMINATION FOR THE AFFECTED RANCHO DEL MAR CENTER MERCHANTS.  Support local businesses!
