Online petition aims to put the brakes on development of green space
Citizens For Oakwood, a grassroots effort to promote sustainable use of the former Oakwood Golf Club in South Euclid and Cleveland Heights, has created an online petition at change.org. Every time someone signs the petition, an e-mail is sent to 27 local policy makers, including the mayors of Cleveland Heights and South Euclid, to "tell elected officials that paving over scarce never-developed land is NOT sustainable. And when other alternatives exist, it is inexcusable."
Sign the petition at: change.org/petitions/stop-ripping-up-green-space-to-build-shopping-centers-support-sustainable-land-use. Read more about the issue at www.CitizensForOakwood.com.
