Action Alert: CALL TODAY to Guarantee Community Benefits for the Bridge/ Delray Community

Detroit Peoples Platform Action Alert: CALL TODAY to Guarantee Community Benefits for the Bridge/ Delray Community
Community Benefits Are At Stake for Everyone.
City Council is voting Monday on transferring its Delray land to the state for building the bridge, but there are still No Guarantees Protecting the Community. Delray residents have suffered 10 years waiting for this bridge.

Please Call to Protect Residents facing Big Developments & Urge City Leaders to Stand Strong for Doing Development Right.
CALL City Council President Brenda Jones: (313) 224-1245
CALL Mayor Duggan: (313) 224-3400
And your Council Rep – See numbers below.

Tell City Council and Mayor Duggan any of these:

*Guarantee Protections for the Delray community with a Community Benefits Agreement, not just a gentlemen’s agreement
*Make sure the host community of Delray/Southwest Detroit is guaranteed a seat At the table (not on it!) in negotiating community benefits.
*Put the resources from the land sale back into Delray where it is needed most. (Currently, Delray residents get no funding to tear down dangerous homes, even though they are harder hit than many areas in Detroit.)

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
MONDAY @ 2pm – Council Hearing to Vote on Deal. Coleman A. Young Municipal Center, 13th Floor. Come to support the community & CBAs!
