UPDATE: This agenda item has been moved up so that folks interested in supporting the coop will not have to wait for hours. Be there at 5:30pm Tuesday night to make sure you can show your support for the Renaissance Community Coop! (The post below has been corrected to reflect this new information.)
On Tuesday, May 7, the Greensboro City Council will discuss the future plans for the Renaissance Shopping Center on Phillips Avenue. We need you to join us that night to voice our communities support for the Renaissance Coop grocery store!
We rarely ask folks to join us at City Council. We are doing so now because it is important for our community to show the Council, and the rest of Greensboro, just how broad support is for our coop grocery store. There’s nothing like 100 people at a Council meeting to bring this point home to Council members!
We’ll have stickers, buttons and flyers with us that you may use to show the Council members you want the coop grocery store included in the future development of Phillips Avenue.
The Council meeting officially starts at 5:30 pm. Our item will be heard early in the meeting, so plan to arrive early to show your support.
Your support continues to be critical to the success of this effort. See you Tuesday night at the Melvin Municipal Building, 300 W. Washington St (map). You can park for free in the Municipal lot at Eugene and Washington. Enter the building on the Plaza side.
