Obviously nobody is expected to attend all of these meetings, but please attend some of them so that we can continue to put pressure on the Council and other parts of the city government, as well as inform other members of the public.

Monday, February 12, 4:00-7:00 PM, Marcellus Harris will resume his “Councilman Corner” at the Pizza Buffet, 12838 Jefferson Ave. (about midway from Denbigh Blvd. to Richneck Road on the right side of Jefferson going north).   12838 Jefferson Ave.
Tuesday, February 13, 7:00 PM, City Council Chambers, City Hall, regular City Council Meeting.
Thursday, February 15, 6:00-7:30 PM, Councilwoman Saundra Cherry’s Town Hall meeting, Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center, 2400 Wickham Ave.

Wednesday, February 21, 2:00 PM, Planning Commission will meet in the conference room on the 10th floor of City Hall for a work session in which they will discuss the Draft Comprehensive Plan. This is a work session, but it’s still open to the public. Our presence there will send a message in itself. Also we will be better informed about what to say when there is a public hearing at which we can speak.
This plan shows the City Farm as “Under Study,” despite the fact that it is zoned as park land and the Plan itself admits that there is a need for more waterfront park land. We need to let the Planning Commissioners know that we want to keep the City Farm as a park.

The Conference room is the same room where City Council holds its work sessions.

What we get from meetings like this is a better sense of what members of the commission may think by the questions they ask and the statements they make. That helps the citizens when they approach members individually or speak to the whole commission at a public hearing.
