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.
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.
