Why Do We Ask for Your Support?

CCD has become a known, accepted “spokesgroup” for the values and vision that the citizens of Columbia and the surrounding area expressed so eloquently during the first day of the Charrette in October, 2005. By speaking with one voice, the community has had more power and influence in this process and has become the “third leg” on this issue, commensurate with the elected officials on the one hand and with GGP and the rest of the development industry on the other. The more people we represent, the more powerful our voice…your voice…becomes!

What Will We Be Asking of You?

From time to time, we will be contacting you to…

  • Share information about what is going on in Downtown development.
  • Invite you to forums, teach-ins, speakers, and other gatherings so that you can learn more about these issues and so that you can share your knowledge and opinions.
  • Let you know how we believe you can be helpful in making your voice heard, such as by e-mailing elected officials to let them know you support what the Coalition stands for.
  • Ask you what is important to you so that we can more accurately reflect, represent, and advocate for the values for which we believe the community stands.

Privacy Policy

Your name will be added to our list of supporters on this website, unless you request anonymity. (Our preference is that you allow us to use your name, so that those we hope to influence have a sense of who we are and have a way to validate the number of supporters we say we speak for.) We will not, however, share your phone, address, e-mail address, or any of your contact information with any other person or group without your express permission.
