Hear Ye …Hear Ye !

     If you thought that the 13th Street neighborhoods of Fort Lauderdale had given up their quest for funding a renewal of their business district,( after last month’s loss at the County,)

                                  you’d be mistaken!

                    
                           the new, hoped for 13th Street Business District

    
      Today, the 13th Street Alliance took out all the stops!

     They sent  Sir James, and Lad Charles to deliver caligraphied scrolls to each of the County Commissioners and County Mayor Rodstrom, asking again for the needed funding!


       
                         Sir James and Lad Charles at the County 


    
The 13th Street Alliance, four neighborhoods of about 15,000 people, chose the rather theatrical delivery, english style, to help drive their point home.


        
                 Sir James, Lad Charles ( and their pet squirrel Rocky?) 


     Sir Thomas read the proclamation aloud (very aloud!) so that any Commissioners behind the iron curtain might hear – 

                          ……………………………………………………….
             ……… With utmost sincerity, and in anticipation of good outcomes, the 13th Street communities of Fort Lauderdale thank you for your positive consideration

                         Signed,  

                         The People
                      ……………………………………………………………….


     It’s expected that the Commission will have a renewed discussion of the funding at their meeting tomorrow…….
