Mayor of Yonkers sent this letter to the Chamber of Commerce

March 27, 2008

Dear Friend:

I am writing to you today to ask that you please consider voicing your
support for the proposed Struever Fidelco Cappelli (SFC) project next
month, as we anticipate the project will come before the City Council.
The Council is scheduled to meet Tuesday, April 8, 2008 and Tuesday,
April 22, 2008 at 8:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at City Hall,
4th Floor, 40 South Broadway. On the day of the meeting, it is
recommended you call the City Clerk's Office at 914-377-6020 between 9:00 a.m.
and 3:00 p.m. to confirm SFC is an item on the agenda and, if that is
the case, we would encourage you to sign up as a speaker for that

Most importantly, the City Council is expected to schedule two public
hearings on the SFC project the end of April, therefore, we will notify
you as soon as these are scheduled with the hope that you will attend
these meetings as well. Your attendance at the City Council meetings
and the public hearings are vital to moving the SFC project forward and
we would ask that you give these meetings priority.

In addition to the above, from time to time other organizations meet,
which is the case with the Yonkers Alliance for Community Benefits. For
your information, they are meeting to discuss SFC tonight from 7 to 9
p.m. at the Nepperhan Community Center, 342 Warburton Avenue and again
on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Will Library, 1500
Central Park Avenue.

With your support, we can ensure that Yonkers best days are still

Thank you for your commitment to our city, and please call Christine
Sculti at 377-6085 if you need further information.


Philip A. Amicone
