I live in Westdale and have long bemoaned the lack of a patio on which to enjoy a beer and a bit to eat on a sunny evening. Jimmy Gringos - where one can get a fine, filling burrito-like sandwhich - has at least three things going against it ...

  • it is next door to and across from several houses

  • a licensed patio would be a potential draw for noisy students*

  • the restaurant has not shown itself to be a good neighbour so far - tire tracks on a neighbours lawn, garbage, no thought to aesthetics - and has generated no good will with its neighbours (I am not one of them)

I would really, really love to see the sidewalks made wider in front of the business at the centre of the Westdale oval: imagine 1010 Bisto, The Bean Bar, The Snooty Fox and Montefort's each with a little patio ...

  • by "noisy students" I do not mean "students, all of whom are noisy", I mean "the students who are noisy.
