Knight's Market plan draws neighbor interest – The Ann Arbor Chronicle, June 1, 2012
[During a public hearing at the May 15, 2012 Ann Arbor planning commission meeting,] Scott Newell told commissioners that he owned Big City Small World Bakery at the northwest corner of Miller and Spring. He said he was very conflicted [about an expansion project for Knight's Market], “but these guys are great,” referring to the Knights. He agreed with the pros and cons he’d heard from previous speakers. If the city does approve the project, he hoped that a real streetlight could be installed on that corner, like one at First and Ashley. Pedestrian traffic is heavy, especially during rush hour, he said, and there are a lot of young families. Newell wrapped up by saying, ”These guys are great and I love ‘em.”
