Letter: city wide meeting request
To the Editor:
Having read the Oakdale-Lake Elmo Review Wednesday May 21st article about the Lake Elmo neighborhood parks meeting schedule, I wish to respectfully request that the city of Lake Elmo also have a citywide meeting for all residents that addresses the total transformation of the city to everyone at the same time. It is nice to have informal small meetings, in a sort of meet and greet picnic atmosphere. However, with the massive changes being pursued by this administration it would be appropriate to encourage a large turnout from the entire city, so everyone hears all the comments and questions at the same time.
A citywide meeting would be an efficient, effective tool for communication and the proper method to obtain feedback from current residents.
A meeting at either the Lake Elmo Elementary School or Oakland Jr. High would be appropriate and permit residents the opportunity to meet their elected and appointed officials.
