Your Representatives


Please taking moment to write or email your representative. Our goal is to advocate for careful consideration of this project by our public officials; consideration that takes the neighborhood's wishes into account. Before you write, please take a look at our councilman, Brad Lander's, comments on this subject. A big issue is zoning and land use. We want to have to have input into what kind of rezoning, if any, is approved. Please be respectful of your representative, and let them know you vote.
