Petition to Councilmember Jose Huizar
Save Little Tokyo! Save First Street North!
We, Little Tokyo stakeholders, petition Mayor Eric Garcetti and Councilmember Jose Huizar to save Little Tokyo by ensuring the selection of a community-based developer that will develop First Street North in accordance with the Sustainable Little Tokyo Community Vision. First Street North is a block critical to the past, present, and future of Little Tokyo, and the our community vision includes affordable housing and commercial space, community/cultural space, an expanded Go For Broke National Education Center, and park space to ensure a healthy, equitable, and culturally rich Little Tokyo for generations to come. We petition Councilmember Huizar and Mayor Garcetti to: Give back First Street North to Little Tokyo to be developed for and by the community. Approve the Go For Broke National Education Center’s ground lease immediately.

Tell the MTA to Repair and Restore the Kew Gardens, Queens Lefferts Blvd. Bridge
Don't let MTA/LIRR destroy the heart of Kew Gardens! Since the late 1920's the Kew Gardens’ Lefferts Blvd bridge over the Long Island Railroad - home to the mom and pop stores that give the town its character and serve the shopping needs of its residents - has been the heart of this "Urban Village in the Big City". MTA and LIRR own the bridge and surrounding real estate. Over 26 years ago the MTA set aside plans to develop a high-rise building over the MTA/LIRR tracks at the Kew Gardens Station. The MTA abandoned its proposal in the face of unified opposition by the community’s residents, civic associations, and elected officials. Hundreds of people came together to fight the proposed destruction of the Lefferts Blvd. bridge of stores - the heart of Kew Gardens. The heart of Kew Gardens is once again threatened. The MTA/LIRR is using the results of their intentional neglect as the excuse for a revived attempt to destroy the heart of our community. This site – a one-of-a-kind structure in New York City and the United States - is now once more the target of destructive development. Too many American “somewheres” have become “nowheres.” We won’t let Kew Gardens become a “nowhere"! We demand a full repair and preservation of the Lefferts Blvd bridge and its properties, with community oversight.

#JusticeForJunior... Turn Grocery Store Into Junior Memorial Community Center.
On June 21st 15yrs old Lesandro Guzman-Feliz nickname Junior was brutally stabbed by a group of gang members on East 183rd Street and Bathgate in The Bronx. I am calling all political leaders of this area to close that store down and make that space a community center. A place where young people can come in and feel safe in their community. If there was responsible adults in that store they would have known how to handle that situation, it was avoidable. Mr. Gustavo and Mr. Salamanca you have the power to make somethings happen and we pation you to make it happen. Prayers, statements and donations are not enough. Now it is time to prevent this from ever happening again in this community.
Petition to OoliticTown Board
Petition for a new Oolitic Park
The Town of Oolitic voted to sell the community center. In April 2018 it was sold to a business owner for $30,000. I would like to petition that the town board use a portion of these funds to create a new community space within the town of Oolitic. Oolitic has gradually lost many things that brought the community together including the festival, the haunted house, and the community center. We want a communal space where we can enjoy our town! We want a space where our young people can play. Preferably we have a park with some or all of these items; a basketball court, a shelter, a small playground, and picnic tables. We should stand together as a community and let our voices be heard. If you agree please sign this petition and share with your neighbors.
Petition to Ron Meyer, Koran Saines
Stop the Self Storage Facility at 1700 Sterling Blvd.
Over the past several years, Sterling has become a dumping ground for other people's stuff. No, not by people dumping their garbage, but by the proliferation of self storage units in and around the 20164 community. We have been averaging one new self-storage facility per year opening. We currently have 12 of these facilities in our community, and don't need any more. As a Sterling resident since 2005, I'm tired of watching developers ram these through the planning commission. Unfortunately, even though this one will be right on Sterling Blvd, it is in Broad Run district and not Sterling, so we have to convince Supervisor Ron Meyer from Broad Run to put pressure on the developer to change their plans. The plan sits at the intersection of Glenn Drive and Sterling Blvd, which is already one of the most dangerous intersections in the county. Adding moving vans to the mix will only increase the problem.
