    I attended this 3 hr. mtg. & was super encouraged by the large # of people who attended. Also encouraged by council's skepticism (at least the council mbrs who were there...) There will be more mtgs. & opportunities for the public to speak. Lincoln Place residents & some of us Lawrenceville people circulated & submitted petitions requesting Council hold a Public Hearing so that the people get a chance to be heard. Will let you know as soon as we get a date & time.

    I was able to watch most of it on the repeat on TV. Hopefully will find some time to write up my notes.
