“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
We need YOUR help! From getting your friends and neighbors informed and interested in this project to contacting the city council to voice your concerns, to helping us read and digest the mountains of documents and studies that Northland submits, we rely wholly on people LIKE YOU.
We need YOU to attend the Land Use Committee Meetings — the Land Use Committee is the first step to APPROVING this project — the time to CHANGE the project is while it is being reviewed by THIS committee. The councilors NEED to feel the pressure of people in that room. The meetings are typically once a month, always on Tuesdays, and typically run from 7 to 10:30pm in the city council chambers on the second floor of city hall.
We need YOUR help in reaching your friends and neighbors. Whether it’s via email, phone, or by going door-to-door, we need YOU to help us spread the word about this MASSIVE proposed development. If you are willing to help canvass your neighborhood, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can provide you with materials (such as this flyer) and make sure that we do not cover the same area more than once.
We need YOU to CALL your city councilors. Take 10 minutes a day to call 4 councilors on the list below. Start with the councilors in your ward, but remember that the “at large” councilors are elected city-wide (and remind them when you call them). At the end of the week, you will have talked to them all. If enough of us do this, the councilors have no choice but to listen.
