Wow. Our supporter turnout on Thursday night was outstanding! Looking back at the audience and seeing the sea of green was extraordinarily inspiring for our full presentation team last night. We can’t thank you enough for your participation and support of a plan that we truly feel is the best opportunity to create a beautiful open space with an 8-acre park, much needed retail and grocery options, multi-function community center with a pool, and thousands of jobs.
The Zoning Commission and those in attendance had an opportunity to see a presentation that included the Master Plan, open park space and the Community Center design. Due to the complexity of the project, the Commission asked that all individual testimony be held until the final hearing on May 13th.
That’s where you come in. We need you to help us keep the momentum going. One hearing down, three more to go. If you haven’t already, please click here to sign up to attend at least one of the remaining three zoning hearings, on May 5th, 8th and 13th.
Everyone in the community understands that this project is highly contentious. If you’ve been to a community meeting, hearing in the past, and or read a story in the press, you know that many have strong emotions one way or another. We need to keep our positive energy high and continue to push hard through the end of the hearings. Whether or not you can attend any of the hearings, the Zoning Commission still needs to hear from you about why you support the project. Click here to send a letter to the Commission telling them why the Vision McMillan plan will benefit your community!
We are closer now than ever before to making this project a reality. Thank you again for all your support to help us get there.
I look forward to seeing all of that green on Monday night!
