Please accept this as an addition to the letter that was recently circulated to you by the Inglewood Community Association (ICA) regarding the proposed Land Use Change (LOC2014-0028) at the CarStar site on 9th Avenue, just west of the Hose & Hound. The Hearing to discuss this issue is scheduled for Monday, November 3, 2014 at the Public Meeting of City Council.
First of all, I want to thank the Redevelopment Committee and the Board for sending their letter to the Community and for the leadership they tirelessly provide. The Community Association has encouraged you to come out on November 3 and speak to Council regarding the development of our community. I echo their encouragement - you are the reason Council holds public hearings regarding land use changes and under the leadership of our great mayor, we truly value input from our citizens.
