Miller Beach, or Miller, is having an identity crisis.
I have lived there a few years now, and am excited to see new businesses open. But these new independent/artsy businesses are catering to a community that isn't there yet.
Sure, maybe 10 percent of Miller's population can afford pricey artwork and a $100 dinner, but right now the demographic isn't there.
I know many people want to see Miller change, but what about the people who live there now? It would be nice to have some businesses we could be patrons of.
I know no one wants to admit this, but most of Miller is an impoverished community, and building businesses that only those who live on Lake Shore drive can support isn't helping our community any.
