Hamm’s Development Joint Statement
April 29, 2022 – Over the last six months, many community members participated in healthy and productive conversations related to the redevelopment of the Hamm’s Brewery Complex. In the last week, the six organizations who got the community conversation started last November, worked together to craft a joint letter to the City Hamm’s RFP–Joint Statement on Community Values. The letter attempts to capture the values and ideas we heard while working in community on this project. We worked hard to capture the breadth of our many conversations awhile balancing the many bright ideas and fine threads we discussed in multiple meetings. We sent the joint letter yesterday so that a record of community conversations would be available to the City as they start their internal review process.
If you would like to sign on, please e-mail your name and address, your title, and your organization to firstname.lastname@example.org We’ll collect up additional names and resend the letter to the HRA next Thursday.
