Despite many efforts in discussing the awful impact the City Yard will have on the West End Community, the Mayor and City Manager will proceed to push for a vote tonight to have city tax payers issue a bond for $600,000 to finance the design and planning costs of the City Yard off Beechwood Avenue in the West End. So, the Mayor never answered my letter. He never held a meeting in the West End. He thumbed his nose at the diverse community that is the West End. It is a done deal! Do you think there is a conspiracy to revive the auction block? Do City Council members believe this to be an issue of environmental racism that they wish to keep silent because of warp political fidelity? Sad development indeed. The season for non-violent civil disobedience is here.
