[Ms. Gutierrez] has noticed [Corona] is more crowded. What was once an empty lot across from her family home now holds a 10-unit apartment building, she said, making parking more difficult.
City Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras, who lived in Corona until moving to East Elmhurst a year and a half ago, said overdevelopment is one of the neighborhood’s biggest challenges. In recent years, many two-family homes have been torn down and replaced with larger, multifamily buildings. The resulting influx of residents has not only affected parking, but has also brought in more traffic and strained city services, Councilwoman Ferreras said.
“It’s hard seeing these beautiful, large colonial homes disappearing,” she said. “As a resident, it makes me sad, because I like the feel of old Corona.”
And whose fault is it that this happened? Your old boss - Hiram, and you.
