The hour about Amazon and the county’s next step is intended for Columbia Heights residents only and that questions will only be taken from Columbia Heights residents.  We can make this statement as the county board said publicly at Saturday’s meeting that they were fanning out and intended to get one board member at EVERY civic association in the next month and would go to any other meetings they could.  If someone from another association wants to express an opinion they need to get their board to host a meeting.
