Received the following last night from the Friends for our Riverfront:
Although funding was approved for Beale Street Landing, Councilmembers are going to take another look at the project.So if you like Beale Street Landing, or love it, or hate it, or just think the money would be better spent elsewhere, this is one more chance to be heard and to change minds.
In an unprecedented action, Councilmember Dedrick Brittenum has asked that information about the $29.4 million new boat dock be presented to the Council CIP budget committee
this Tuesday (June 19)
at 12:30 p.m.
on the 5th floor of City Hall (125 N. Main).
Brittenum sent letters to those who spoke at the last Council meeting, stating that the public will have an opportunity to speak at the committee meeting.
If you have questions that you’d like answered or comments you’d like to make about the new commercial dock, you may
