St. Saviour's rally flier
Our elected officials at every level of government are all on board with obtaining the St. Saviour's site and converting it into a public park. They have secured enough funding for the City to initiate the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) required to take possession of the property. The only problem is that the City has been dragging its feet on starting this, and it may take up to 2 1/2 years for the City to obtain official permission to purchase the property. We fear the developer will not wait that long and may either sell or develop the property in the meantime. In fact, construction activity on the site started this week.
We will therefore be hosting a rally calling on the City to initiate the ULURP process ASAP. We ask that you join us.
