It is with deep gratitude that I write again on behalf of Champaign County Health Care Consumers (CCHCC) to thank you for your support for Hope Village!
We issued a call to action on December 28, in anticipation of last night’s Urbana City Council meeting, when City Council members would be voting to approve the Hope Village application for a Planned Unit Development.
Many of you responded to the call to action and took time to contact the Urbana City Council via email to express your support for Hope Village.
CCHCC staff, along with our partners from Carle Health, and the UIUC, and Hope Village supporters sat in the audience for the 2-hour meeting. We listened as your comments were read into the record. We were humbled and gratified by your support.
We needed five City Council members to vote YES to the Hope Village application in order for it to pass.
The Urbana City Council voted 5 to 1 to approve the Hope Village application for the Permanent Planned Unit Development!
There is a great deal of work ahead of us to bring Hope Village to life and to build the homes and house the people who need it most. We are not waiting a single moment to start this work! In fact, today started with a meeting among the partners and various city officials for us to plan the next steps for Hope Village.
Please stay tuned – CCHCC will keep you informed along the way!
Thank you for your support! You made a difference!
