Do your part to save West Bend from low-income housing in the DOWNTOWN district

NEXT MONDAY, 8/16/10, there will be a City Council meeting in which the aldermen will discuss the River Bluffs housing project destined to be placed in the middle of the downtown area next to the new Art Museum.  The location of this low-income housing project is inappropriate for the downtown location; small business owners are begging for local residents to stand by them in asking the aldermen and Mayor Deiss to overturn this decision for an already-suffering downtown community.

Do your part.

Make phone calls, write letters and send email in opposition to the River Bluffs project.  ATTEND THE MONDAY, 8/16, MEETING, 6:30-8 p.m., Council Chambers.
