Here is a quick update for the community regarding the VMP Facebook page:
I spoke with Anne Corbett, Project Director for Vision McMillan Partners (VMP), yesterday. She indicated that VMP could absolutely use any 'Likes' on the facebook page, in conjunction with other information, to show support for the current proposed redevelopment plan. The language in a VMP release/posting on December 11th states,
"Take a minute to visit VMP on our new Facebook page and “like” us to receive the most updated news and information. We’ll be using the page to solicit your feedback on things like public art and design and will keep you up-to-date on upcoming hearings, meetings and opportunities to engage in the process."
If you do not support the project, I would suggest that you not 'Like' this page. If you do support this project, I would likewise suggest that you do 'Like' this page. Hopefully this clarifies the matter as I believe the initial release from VMP was a bit misleading.
Ms. Corbett reminded me that anyone can receive updates from VMP through three other channels that will not be used to show support for the project. These channels are via the VMP blog, Twitter account (@VisionMcMillan), and website email list .
