    Yes except of course in our neighborhood the people who complain the loudest about gentrification typically look sort of like the people in the picture on the right (OK more piercings) and have been living in the neighborhood the shortest.

    Lots of old timers fret about "them" taking over but it would not occur to them to get bent out of shape over an ice cream shop. You have to recently moved out of your parents home in the suburbs to get truly upset about that.

    Approved overwhelmingly, with a single voice of well intentioned but misguided dissent.

    Little Baby's Ice Cream Coming to Cedar Park? Cedar Park Neighbors

    Cedar Park Neighbors comes out in support with 43 at the meeting in favor (that one guy against) plus 41 written responses in favor.

    Bon voyage, Little Baby's, hope you sail through your ZBA hearing.

    I suppose we should not count chickens, etc., but it logically it would be damn strange for the ZBA to deny takeout food to a location on a commercial corridor that has 3 immediately adjacent neighbors who do have it.

    Yeah I actually went Friday night for the soft opening. Had my ice cream in the cookie sandwich variety, as opposed to bowl or cone. Cookies are frozen. Great as remembered but I have two extraordinary words to say about the cookie options "CHAI SNICKERDOODLE".
