Tell Mayor Elorza to VETO Fane Tower!

At a second reading of the petition on Tuesday, City Council voted 9-5-1 to approve the zoning changes requested by Jason Fane for his 46-story tower proposal at Parcel 42. This, in spite of impassioned pleas by Council Members Principe and LaFortune to their colleagues on the Council to change their minds and words of disappointment from Councilman Yurdin after the vote.

Now it is up to Mayor Jorge Elorza to sign or veto the measure within 10 days or it can pass without his signature. We strongly encourage you to contact Mayor Elorza to VETO the zoning changes required for Fane Tower. Download our letter template that can be signed and sent directly to the Mayor’s office. You may also contact him by phone at 401-421-2489, or by email at
