REMINDER: TOMORROW/MON: Special Residential Meeting on Downtown Plan—Monday 3/14

Hi Everyone,

This is a reminder about a very important meeting for downtown residents, which is being held tomorrow/Monday, March 14 at 6:30 pm at King’s Fish House.  The meeting will be focused on the advocacy for the Downtown Plan; please see below for more details.  I hope you can join me.

Downtown is our home and for some of us it is also our livelihood.  If we do not take care of it and actively work to ensure that it grows and blossoms into what we all want and know it can become, no one will. The Downtown Plan affects each and every one of our daily lives directly and we all have as big (or bigger) a stake in the future of Downtown as anyone, so it is vital that we make our voices heard and also make a good showing on March 17 at the Study Session.

Please forward this email and invite those who are interested in learning about the Plan and how to support it.

Also, King’s Fish House offers happy hour specials from 4:30 – 6:30 pm in their bar, so please feel free to show up a little early.  They have specials on food (oysters, ceviche, sushi rolls, quesadillas) ranging in price from $4.75 to $7.50, and drinks (beer, wine, cocktails) ranging from $3.25 to $5.25.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hope to see you on Monday/tomorrow!
Loara Cadavona
