O Street Project Hearing Update

Important Update:

Cary Silverman forwarded an e-mail from Roadside (the developers of the O Street Market project) expressing concern that supporters of the project might have a counter-productive effect if overly vocal. They ask that we NOT show up with signs or stickers and that we remain silent during the proceedings. They are not discouraging attendance, but the goal is to get a future hearing date where neighborhood supporters might have a voice.

I don't think anyone was intending to be confrontational or disruptive, but certainly everyone should heed this request. I think the mere presence of a substantial number of neighborhood residents will convey the message that we support the project.

What will happen if Zoning just says no? Will Roadside still go ahead with the project in an altered form?

i'm planning on showing up at the meeting, because i think a visual demonstration of support from the neighborhood is desirable and important. that being said, i sure as hell hope the zoning people don't decide that we're being uppity and smack us down for daring to show up to their meeting.

i planned to be respectful all along (not that we should need to be reminded to do so), but i'm going to have the thought racing through my mind the whole time that the zoning folks are going to treat us like children, and we'll have no way to counter than other than to smile and take it.
