Menegon building breaks ground

The Menegon family gathered with friends and colleagues Wednesday morning to celebrate the groundbreaking of a new commercial building at Main and Adams streets, at the former site of the Main Street Service smog station. Gene and Cindy Ivester, not pictured, have already announced plans to move Studio on Main into the new building. In the first row, from left, are Planning Commissioner Matthew Heil, Roberta Oswald with dog Koty, City Council member Peter White, Sharon Scott, Roberta and Gary Menegon (holding shovels), Francesca Menegon, Stephanie Menegon, Annette Smith and Skip Lane. Second row, from left, are Marla Ericson, Larry Smith, Lowell Young, Christie Young and Kristin Ridste. Also present were Alyssa Arroyo and Sandy Scott.

I completely agree with the previous post. But at least it's not as bad as Flora Springs and Robo Bank. I think this architect likes dreamlike design, but this building is actually very conservative for him. It actually looks like a brick building. I don't think you're going to be angry every time you see it as I am whenever I see Flora Springs. Anyway, at least something is getting in that corner. Hopefully we'll see a spruced up main street soon.


This building is going to be one of the worst looking structures in our town. Outdated and trying to hard to be too many things. Ugly just like Robo Bank and Flora Springs Tasting Room. All by the same architect. Ugly
