As a homeowner on first street, I would welcome the opportunity to sign this rumored petition. I have heard neighbors talking about it and I have literally begged to sign it but it has never appeared. Where is it and who is leading this effort to collect names?

For these meetings, I realize that the majority might be available by 7pm on weeknights, but some of the neighbors might work until after 7. I have asked to 1) be made aware in advanced of these meetings and 2) for consideration that they start a little later or meet on the weekend, at least one time to be more inclusive. It seems that that majority will schedule for their convenience and some of us will remain excluded from the discussion.

If you want to pull the neighborhood together, I suggest some alternate grassroots efforts that might be more inclusive to the diverse schedules and technologically capable neighbors.

Now, where is this petition?
