Seventh-grader offers suggestions for redeveloped Crestwood mall

To the editor:

I have lived in Crestwood for my entire life.

I am glad to see that the Crestwood mall will be torn down and rebuilt. I am hoping there will be places for kids and teenagers like me to go and enjoy themselves. I like that a new movie theater will be opening up, but what else?

How about a hiking trail in the green space area or an outdoor amphitheater? Maybe a V-Stock entertainment store or a Slackers or a camping store? A doughnut shop would be nice, since there are none in Crestwood.

Maybe there are some other kids who live in the area who may also have some good ideas. There are many young families moving into Lindbergh Schools and it would be important to keep in mind what they might like.
