Community meeting this Thursday.
Jan 26, 2021 —
Hi friends and neighbors,
Thank you for signing the "Public Hearing for Lawrence/Western Development" petition. As of tonight, we have over 1300 signatures from people who think the community should have input on this project. If you have not done so already, please share the link with others and ask them to sign: https://www.change.org/p/hold-a-public-hearing-for-the-lawrence-western-development
This Thursday, January 25, at 5:30PM, Alderman Vasquez will hold a community meeting to provide information about the project and hear feedback. This is not the same thing as the official Public Hearing we are seeking. The alderman's meeting is to get input, but the official Public Hearing would mean the community would have real impact on the plans. Alderman Vasquez has expressed support for a Public Hearing. The more of us who sign the petition and show up for the meeting, the stronger his advocacy can be with the Department of Planning and Development to require a Public Hearing. So please attend!
