Petition circulating to advocate for Lawrence Downtown Grocery Store

A group of local citizens has started a petition directed to the Lawrence City Commission in favor of turning the building previously home to Borders Books – and now temporarily occupied by the Lawrence Public Library – into a downtown affordable full-service grocery store. Dave Crawford, one of the groups organizers, has offered to come to a Pinckney Neighborhood Association monthly meeting to provide us more details about the petition. We’re in the process of scheduling his visit and will post the date as soon as possible.

In the mean time, you can get more information about the reasons the group is advocating for a downtown grocery store through the links below. You can also sign the petition to the City Commission, if you so desire, through the link provided.
