Here is a sample letter you could send:


Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners, and Mecklenburg County School Board Members


I am writing to each of you to voice my support of the many Neighborhood associations and their members such as Sedgefield, Freedom Park, South-End, Collingwood in opposition to the sale to commercial developers/contractors of the property adjacent to Sedgefield Middle School, bordering on McDonald Avenue.


Further development of this vacant property will result in significant negative impact to the intrinsic character and long-standing neighborhood use of this property.  We, as government officials, and concerned citizens, need to protect the context of special sections of our neighborhoods, and prevent over-development in these areas. Needless to say, Sedgefield Middle School is located in the heart of a dynamic growing area and will need its space to service the growing and diverse student body.


Please, halt the sale of this property, and protect our favorite neighborhood places.
