reminder: please sign the petition to ban ODOT barriers

with 2 comments

The neighbors of Brooklyn Centre, and now Tremont, are uniting to stop the erection of unwanted barriers along I-71, barriers that not only wall off our historic, park neighborhoods from the outside and also wall us in, but also cost 6-7 times what natural barriers like trees and shrubs would.

We united to tell ODOT in 2005 that we didn’t want the sound barriers. We now have to do it again.

Please sign the online petition, and leave your address if you are a resident of Brooklyn Centre or Tremont, or a businessowner. You’ll find the petition here:

Here’s a snippet you can send to your friends, as well:


Hi, I wanted to draw your attention to this important petition that I recently signed: “Ban The ODOT Barriers in Brooklyn Centre”

I really think this is an important cause, and I’d like to encourage you to add your signature, too. It’s free and takes less than a minute of your time. Thanks!

If you have questions or would like to see the verbiage of the petition reworked or expanded, please call me or send me an email. This is an augmentation to the handwritten petitions being circulated, and is not intended to be a substitute for them or a replacement of them.
