Can the owner of Formico's Pizza please come out of retirement to reopen there?

Second that motion. And if not, what about selling the recipe to someone who will promise to make pizzas like Formico's Pizza did?

Provision of pedestrian access should be a condition of project approval. As it is now, there is no safe path for pedestrians from the many homes (90 plus) a few hundred feet to the north of the project along West Bayshore Road. The project with its nifty new supermarket and community park will trigger an increase in pedestrian traffic, which increase is an impact of the project but which was not studied in the EIR. The EIR should not be certified unless the city stipulates to the impact and its mitigation by provision of a path.

Again, safe pedestrian access should be a condition of project approval.

Why have more housing? Why not all retail? I grew up in an Eichler. Please keep Eichler's signature look if he did indeed design the shopping center.

Formico's pizza was the best. What was the name of his signature pizza with everything on it? There was a great hardware store there for years as well.

Bring back the good new days...

Stromboli with extra cheese. It became almost a weekly indulgence. And, I still haven't been able to duplicate the flavor of their lasagna (I've come close, but nothing can compare...)
