The Port Marigny team has hired a PR firm to combat the very powerful grassroots opposition and are currently finding every “supporter/friend/paid Facebook like” who has been hiding under a rock until now to say how wonderful it will be. NOW IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO SPEAK UP! Contact ALL the council members and let them know your opposition to the extreme high density – a concrete jungle with minimal green space and lots so tiny you can spit at your neighbor’s window with tons of apartments. The corrected allowable minimum is 154 livable units and we should not accept anything near the 400’s or even 300’s!!!
Feel free to cut and paste the talking points below or make up your own. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, LSica@cityofmandeville.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
TALKING POINTS FOR CITY COUNCIL EMAIL
1. I am FOR a well thought out development of the former pre-stressed site, compatible with surrounding neighborhoods and Old Mandeville.
2. I am AGAINST the proposed Port Marigny development due solely to the High Density and magnitude of negative impacts it will have on the surrounding neighborhoods and Old Mandeville.
3. I am FOR a development, approved by the City Council at the minimum density prescribed in the CLURO (we calculate it to be ~154). We believe this number is compatible with that of the surrounding neighborhoods and Old Mandeville.
4. I am FOR a development plan which presents future requests to the City Council to increase the density of parts of the development IF future conditions justify an increase.
