A few months ago an out of town developer announced that they want to build a multi-story student housing development in La Plaza Vieja neighborhood that would evict almost 200 low income residents from their homes. On Wednesday, February 19, at 6:00 p.m. at the Double Tree Hotel (1175 W. rte. 66, Flagstaff) the city of Flagstaff is holding a public meeting for local residence to hear future plans and to let their voice be heard. If you are unable to make the meeting or wish want to do more some of the ways which you are able to help is to write or inform media about the issue. Some local resources to do that is to contact AZ Daily Sun, the NAU Lumberjack, or KNAU. If you want to expresses your concerns, contact the Planning and Zoning Commission at email@example.com.
