The Campaign for Sustainable Transportation and the Downtown Commons Advocates are urging our new City Council NOT to persue the current plans to construct yet another parking garage above a new library in our downtown, but instead to take the steps (WIN-WIN strategies) shown in the sample letter in the form below.
For additional information (ten reasons why we don't need a new garage), see this page. And for a thorough review about how Portland has created “gathering places”, dealt with their homeless and provided low-cost housing, see this page.
If you are supportive of any of these steps, please consider filling out the form below to send a note to our City Council. The subject line will say “Win-Win for Farmers Market AND Library”.
Your note will be most effective if you edit the “Message” that we provide in the form below so as to express your thoughts in your own words.
If you just want to say you endorse the steps provided in the “Message”, at least insert an initial sentence that says so, right after the first line of the message in the form.
We'll add your signature (and address if you provide it) after your note, which you could therefore end with "Sincerely," or "Best," (or nothing at all).
