Jennifer Arenskjold's letter protesting the plan to demolish 900 Columbia Street appears in today's Register-Star: "Leave 900 Columbia."
The Save 900 Columbia Street petition now has 278 signatures, but many more are needed. The petition "went viral" yesterday when Enid Futterman, publisher and co-editor of OurTown, put the link to the petition on her Facebook page, along with an appeal for the building that ended with this quote from Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi": "Don't it always seem to go /
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone / They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."
If you haven't already done so, please sign the petition.
