Should you choose to attend or speak tonight, here is some further information and talking points:
Doors will open at 6 and a large crowd is expected. If you are signing up to speak (and please do take two minutes of free speech!) remember to sign up as an individual. SOS will be making a five minute presentation at the beginning of the evening, so additional remarks will not be taken from the organization. This does not prevent you from voicing your own opinion, so let’s make our voices heard!
Here are some basic goals and points that we hold in common for the Seaport that will certainly bear repeating. We are calling for:
An inclusive master planning process
Public assets for public use
Support for the South Street Seaport Museum
And saying with every word,
The Seaport development is NOT a done deal
