URGENT ACTION ALERT! Hockey Arena/ Catalyst Project
PEOPLE’S PLATFORM – URGENT ACTION ALERT!
Hockey Arena/ Catalyst Project
We need 1000 Detroiters to make a telephone call for fairness and justice.
UPDATE: On Tuesday February 4, 2014 at 10am Detroit City Council will hear public comments and vote on the Land Transfer for the Hockey Arena / Catalyst Project.
WE’RE FOR EQUITABLE DEVELOPMENT THAT BENEFITS ALL DETROITERS , WE’RE FOR GOOD JOBS FOR DETROITERS AND WE’RE FOR ENFORCEABLE BENEFITS WITH REPRESENTATIVE COMMUNITY OVERSIGHT.
ACTION: Call Council and demand that they refuse to approve the transfer of public land for the so-called “Catalyst” Development Project without an enforceable community benefits agreement with representative community oversight to ensure community benefits are realized.
Make sure that the jobs and other community benefits Illitch/ Olympia Development of Michigan (ODM) promised are actually delivered!
STRATEGY: Use the new district map to contact your district Council Member, call both ‘at large’ city-wide Council Members Jones and Jenkins. Also consider calling Council Members Castaneda-Lopez and Leland whose votes are important around this issue.
