This petition was created to test public response, and will be reinstituted as a hard copy petition in the New London area.
This petition, titled, "Petition to Re-Evaluate Economic Development Positions for Funding and Operational Success," has been created and is being circulated in order that the City Council of New London understands that the people of New London, those who live, work, recreate, support, and do business -- both buying and selling -- within New London, are anxious to see real and successful change within our city; but that change should only be initiated after careful thought and consideration is given by the City Council to all options, not just options that are expediently proposed and enacted.
The elimination of the entire Economic Development department and staff and programs may not be the best option to enact, and we believe that more options, each with their respective pros and cons, and careful consideration by the City Council, is necessary at this critical time in the city's life.
Action for actions sake is not what is now needed. However, we agree that once a careful consideration has been made, based on all available facts and opinions, that action should be taken and must be made decisively.
We, the undersigned, respectfully request that the City Council of New London re-evaluate the current recommendation to eliminate the entire Economic Development department of the City of New London, and its staff and programs, so that the City Council may research and evaluate, fully and with all available facts, the best methods to enhance the economic development of New London, and support those current economic development initiatives already in place and judged successful, and being administered and managed by Economic Development staff, while searching for new methods and options, all to be considered by the City Council, to enhance that success.
