Closing off small businesses on Lead/Coal is unacceptable.

Small businesses are of vital importance to NM's economy without them our economy will die. The construction on Lead/Coal has restricted access to several small businesses in the area and this will continue through the holidays. This will hurt several area businesses. Please sign as an act of solidarity and support for those businesses that are struggling to survive the Lead/Coal construction project.

Large corporations who have attorneys on retainer have a voice when something like this happens. Small business does not. Small businesses run this economy. All these businesses want is access so their customers can get to them. The city is saying that the road is accessible, however there are GIANT road closed signs and small cars cannot maneuver through the construction easily. Incidentally one person has injured themselves so badly trying to walk to one of these businesses that they were hospitalized. That is not accessible. The city is in denial that there is a problem and they refuse to try to understand what their inaction has done to these local businesses

Provide good access to local business on Lead and Coal during construction

Small businesses are of vital importance to New Mexico's economy without them our economy will die. The construction on Lead/Coal has restricted access to several small businesses in the area and this will continue through the holidays. This has hurt several area businesses.

Large corporations who have attorneys on retainer have a voice when something like this happens. Small business does not. Small businesses run this economy. All these businesses want is access so their customers can get to them. The city is saying that the road is accessible, however there are GIANT road closed signs and small cars cannot maneuver through the construction easily. Incidentally one person has injured themselves so badly trying to walk to one of these businesses that they were hospitalized. That is not accessible. The city is in denial that there is a problem and they refuse to try to understand what their inaction has done to these local businesses

We are signing as an act of solidarity and support for those businesses that are struggling to survive the Lead/Coal construction project. And to ask city council to take action to provide access to theses businesses through the holiday season, despite the construction.
