One of the best ways to help is to volunteer. Volunteers can make it possible for us to do so many things. If you are opposed to the rezone and you have some time to work with us, we want to hear from you! To get started, please fill out this handy form. Your information will be forwarded to our volunteer coordinator, and you will be contacted with more information on activities and occasions where you can show your support.
Please remember that our volunteer coordinator is a volunteer too, with home, family, and work commitments, just like all of us. So please allow some time for them to contact you after you send the form. We have a particular need for people who can organize teams and take responsibility for activities. If you are able and willing to be a team leader, please tell us that in the comments.
Order a T-shirt
Show the world you care about your neighborhood. Proudly wear your No Rezone t-shirt whenever you shop locally, go to an event in town, attend City Council meetings, or just wherever you go. To get a t-shirt, or as many t-shirts as you need, please fill out this handy contact form. Our t-shirt coordinator will reach out to you to tell you how you can get your t-shirt and arrange for payment. T-shirts cost $15.00, which covers the cost of the shirt, plus a small donation. If you want to donate more, please give your additional contribution to our t-shirt coordinator when you purchase your t-shirt. Please remember that our t-shirt coordinator is a volunteer with home, family, and work commitments, just like all of us. So please allow some time for them to contact you after you place your request. If you would like more than one shirt, you can add that to the Special Instructions. Please note: Sizing is unisex, and the shirts may shrink in the wash.
Order a sign
One of the best ways to get our message out is to post signs in our yards and other places where they can be seen by the public and by our elected city officials. To get a sign, or as many signs as you need, please fill out this handy contact form. Our sign coordinator will reach out to you to tell you how you can get your sign and arrange for payment. Signs cost $4.00, so we ask that you make a minimum contribution of $4.00 per sign. If you want to donate more, please give your additional contribution to our sign coordinator when you purchase your sign. Please remember that our sign coordinator is a volunteer with home, family, and work commitments, just like all of us. So please allow some time for them to contact you after you place your request.
