Happy New Year! On your to do list:

Size Matters, Density Matters, Quality-of-Life Matters.
Come Help Protect Our Neighborhoods,
Public Meeting, sponsored by riverfrontalliance.org  - 
Wednesday, January 14, 7:00 p.m. at Holy Angels, 3500 St. Claude in Bywater

Make Your Voice Heard!

This meeting is happening because mutual concerns have unified several neighborhood organizations, speaking for thousands of citizens who will be negatively affected by proposed zoning. Changes to the draft CZO are necessary, before it has the force of law, to protect fragile neighborhoods and their citizens from harmful, irreversible land use policies. The Size Matters campaign continues as part of this initiative; find more information about the presentation here: riverfrontalliance.org
 
We believe Councilmember Ramsey is shaping her schedule to be in attendance. Councilmember-at-Large Jason Williams already had a previous engagement, but staff members will be there. Keep inviting all Councilmembers, as city-wide issues will be discussed. Let them know we want to work together for solutions.
