Stop ALDI move to Steelyard and stop push to demolish Wirth House

1.) Stop construction of Steelyard ALDI which will compete with neighborhood store. ALDIs is a critical food service in the Brooklyn Centre neighborhood. Planning has been in works without public input. Federally funded CDCs are not working to retain and support local services and businesses and benefit from TIF monies awarded to Steelyard Developer.2.) Prevent demolition of Wirth House on Art House campus. Historic character of neighborhood and potential for eventual family attraction linkage with Metroparks Zoo and Cuyahoga Valley National Park will be lost if CDC-Stockyard Clark Fulton Brooklyn Centre is permitted to use CDBG funds(federal HUD monies) to demolish historic Wirth House 

I have updated the significance as the community stands to lose the services of ALDI in the neighborhood.  Loss of Wirth House to demolition is significant waste of tax dollars and investment--but most critical human need in the Brooklyn Centre neighborhood of CLE is potential loss of ALDI at Pearl Rd.  PLEASE forward this petition and make noise.  We can not afford to lose the services of ALDI on Pearl Rd. in Brooklyn Centre. If First Interstate proceeds with construction of the store at Steelyard - it will compete with an existing store and undermine the performance of the store that serves Brooklyn Centre neighborhood.
