Councilman Andy Protogyrou heavily campaigned on the promise that he would work to revitalize Wards Corner and he has wasted no time pushing the issue.
At the July 13, 2010 City Council meeting, Mr. Protogyrou made an oral and written request to the City Manager that there be a meeting scheduled with Mr. Protogyrou and a representative of NRHA, Economic Development, City Planning, and the City Attorney’s office.
The text of the request:
The Greater Wards Corner Comprehensive Plan (2004) is approximately 6 years old. In that time, changes have resulted in demographics, the economy overall, and city finances in particular.
However, I believe opportunity still exists for major change in the plan area.
As we have a Wards Corner Task Force where stakeholders meet on a regular basis, I request a meeting of City Hall stakeholders as an educational tool for myself.
Therefore, I kindly request a meeting with NRHA, Economic Development, City Planning and perhaps the City Attorney’s Office to brief me and examine our past, present, and future in Wards Corner.
I would like to meet in the CIty Council Conference Room, and questions will be particularized for each department by me before they arrive to afford adequate time to prepare.
Mr. Protogyrou wants his constituents to know that if you need him, he can be contacted at email@example.com or 633-6607.
