Petitions against additional warehousing (including Northpoint Development’s Compass Business Park) are circulating the area during our door-to-door campaign and at special events. If you haven’t seen one yet, you can stop in to Kirby’s Bakery, Fritz’s Saloon, Kraus Cable & Internet office or Gallagher’s Pub — all these locations in Manhattan have petitions available for you to sign. Additionally, you can also sign the petition online (click here)!
Please note that if you signed our petition in paper, you need not also sign it online. You do not have to be a resident of Elwood or Manhattan (any adult over the age of 18 can sign).
Additionally, there is a separate petition organized by the Sierra Club that calls for “Time-out On Massive Warehouse and Distribution Centers in Will County.”
Here is the link to learn more about and sign the Sierra Club’s petition: https://www.addup.org/campaigns/time-for-a-time-out-on-massive-warehouse-and-distribution-centers-in-will-county/petition/
Thank you for making your voice heard!
