Thanks to a reader for sending:
“We need your help to save the 14&U Farmers Market — and the Post Office at the Reeves Center at 14th and U.
You may have read that the Reeves Center will sold to a developer (to pay for a soccer stadium at Buzzard Point). There is a very important meeting TUESDAY DEC 17th at 6 pm at the Reeves Center to hear from the community about what we want in that new development. We need you to come and tell the city that we want the farmers market to be able to be at that site, that we want the Post Office at that site, and that we need to replace this office complex with offices –not residential — that will create daytime traffic.
The Reeves Center is a huge office complex that supported local daytime business for our retail and restaurants. It needs to be replaced with something else that would support daytime business. We have a very lively nightlife and weekend life, but our businesses and restaurants need daytime traffic.
Thank you for you help and I hope to see you Tuesday, December 17th at 6 pm at the Reeves Center. Please spread the word.”
