On July 23, the City Council ultimately decided to delay a decision on the new Temple. The Temple will be on the July 30th agenda-setting meeting at 2pm, and up for a vote again on August 6 at 4pm. We have been advised that the sangha's presence on July 30th and likely on August 6 will be helpful to show our passion and the importance of the new Temple to our community. There will be no public commentary at either meeting, but the lawyer representing the Temple could be invited by City Council to answer questions.
Olivia Kodo Simkins Bullock will be coordinating folks who want to attend either of these meetings. Contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
