Lancaster Stands Up

On Wednesday night, LSU joined with Put People First PA Lancaster Healthcare Rights Committee and attended a Lancaster City zoning board meeting where UPMC was seeking approval for their petition to change 210 College Ave's zoning (formely St Joseph's Hospital) from "hospital zoning" to "mixed-use zoning' so that they can sell the land to a developer, which will mostly likely worsen the rapid gentrification happening in Lancaster.

LSU member & PPF supporter, J Eric Fisher spoke passionately and called on the zoning board to "slow down" and wait to rezone as it "might give our community the power it needs to have something really incredible happen here." He goes on to say: "Lancaster has been in the media for...wonderful things, I want the next story to be that we are the small city...that didn't leave people behind."

The zoning board decided to postpone the decision until its January 15th meeting. Put People First PA Lancaster Healthcare Rights Committee and LSU is asking for people to attend this meeting to have your voice heard.

Maybe take a look at this example from Seattle. Like Seattle, Lancaster desperately needs more housing, but housing and retail that serves the wealthy and furthers gentrification won't help. Need to find new models. seattle.curbed.com/2019/6/5/18652425/africatown-plaza-community-land-trust-design

This was what I was talking about at the It's Up to Us meeting. ๐Ÿ™Œ There is so much power in making them hear our voices at these types of meetings because it goes in the minutes and they have to answer! Best case scenario, they actually listen. Even if they don't do what we want, they will be on record as saying NO to such a worthy cause. What an inspiring speech! I hope we can have even more next time! ๐Ÿ’™

Will spend the coming weeks researching more ways to use this time effectively. Keep your eyes open for more ๐Ÿ™‚

Lancaster City Council Member elect Councilor Jaime Arroyo went to Congress yesterday to testify about why businesses need to implement practices that benefit all of us, not just their personal profits and CEO's paycheck. From paying employees living wages to reducing the use of fossil fuels in their business model, we need businesses and coporations to play their part in working for working people. And, we need representatives and voters who hold these businesses accountable for their impact on our communities. That's what Lancaster elected Jaime, Councilor Amanda Bakay, and Xavier Garcia-Molina for City Council to do once they're sworn in, and we can't wait to see how they push Lancaster to work for all of us. ...

That was a word salad of feel good BS. Why are folks clamoring for government force to be applied to our citizens & businesses? I donโ€™t understand. What happened to live & let live? Or violence is unacceptable?
