Have you seen things happening at the Villa Rosa? Have you heard what’s going on at the Villa Rosa?

I’ve been asked these questions a lot recently.

Months ago, a permit for internal demolition work was issued for contractors of the owner of the Villa Rosa. Most recently, a permit was granted for contractors of the owner for the construction of a roof, and other exterior work. This is why you currently see a big box over the front of the store.

I know there is much speculation around new ownership of the property, a new restaurant at the site, and potential concepts thereof. However, at this point, according to the City Clerk, there has been no changes to the name or ownership of the Villa Rosa at this time. The Clerk’s Office also has had no applications filed, and there have been no hearings scheduled in front of the licensing board on the matter. If there is a change in ownership or operation, these qualifications will be required.

As soon as I know about any legitimate changes to this location, I will be sure to let neighbors know.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or e-mail if you have any questions.
