Let's invite ourselves to the upcoming Le Conte Neighborhood Association meeting. In these meetings, a variety of items of interest are presented to the local community.

Agenda item #1 is the People's Park (Destruction) Project-
An overview & planning steps for development presented by Ruben Lizardo, Director of UC’s Government & Community Relations, with Telegraph business perspectives from Stuart Baker, Executive Director of Telegraph Business Improvement District.

U.C.'s position regarding the park are already well known. Their friend and ally, the Telegraph Business Improvement District is a rabid advocate of the privatization of public space and laws criminalizing homelessness, such as the recently proposed ordinance prohibiting lying on the sidewalk. We don't need too much imagination to envision their plans for our park.

A question and answer session immediately follows this presentation. Let's use this opportunity to express our opposition and disgust for their plans to destroy/improve our park.
