To support the Downtown Commons Advocates and protest the city council's decision to build an unnecessary 400 space parking garage on the site, displacing the Farmer's Market
Come help us turn the parking lot into a park! Take photos, share on social media, enjoy the space, and most importantly, contact the City Council to let them know you don't want a parking garage on this site!
We will take over fossil fuel machine parking to make a grassy "People's Space" with plants and seating.
Bring your energy and your imagination--if you have a plant to bring, or a chair, please do. You can bring signs or sign-making materials too.
This action is to protest the proposed 60-foot high, 400-space parking garage/library on the site. XRSC supports the Downtown Commons Advocates in their vision of a community gathering area and public spaceThe city council is voting on this on Tuesday!
Please remember your mask! And remember to social distance. Stay safe, everyone!
