Friends, this is The Big One: The Borough Assembly will hold a public hearing on the adoption of Vision Fairbanks this Thursday, August 21, in a session starting at 6:00. Be there, speak in favor of its adoption, and wear blue to show your support!
If you’d like to know why you should speak in favor of Vision Fairbanks, I have written four other posts on its virtues: the Action Alert for the initially scheduled (but canceled) City Council meeting, the Action Alert for the actual City Council Meeting when Vision Fairbanks was endorsed, my prepared testimony for said meeting, on “The civic education of your young“, and my prepared testimony for the Planning Commission, on the “Fairbanks Citizenship Tax“.
We have a chance to give Fairbanks back a functioning downtown: a retail, commercial, and civic center, with public space to be proud of. Let’s reclaim our historic downtown as an honored place at the center of our community.
