Rocky Branch Creek Cleanup

On my way home from night shift I dropped by the 5 points Starbucks. While waiting on the cheese danish I come across a sign for a clean up project for the Rocky Branch creek on March 14th 10am to 2pm.   It had no name, contact or anyway to identify the activist. There was no agenda except to rally people to clean up a patch of water that affects us all.



On December 19th the City council delayed an approval of the sale of the City Field Assembly St. property to Walmart in part to the effect of the Rocky Branch drainage. As an aspiring local dining/retail/political blogger I've been studying the campaigns for Columbia City council in detail. All district 3 candidates and the at large candidates each echoed their support against the proposed site.

I challenge all City Council current and prospective members to use their bully pulpit/stump to promote this cause.  Politicians and regular folks often invoke the environment especially when its inconvenient to a giant big box retailer. Lets rally around this simple cleanup and prove that we aren't just about the environment when its someone else's problem.

Sure hope this sign was legit. If not i'm going to look real silly.
