What do you think of
when you think of Fremont?
A weekly opportunity for people to meet and visit with their neighbors,
as well as browse goods and services unavailable anywhere else. Provides
livelihoods for scores of small businesspeople.
Currently being sued by Sound Mind & Body Gym.
This annual tribute to art & life attracts thousands of residents
and visitors to the streets of Fremont in a high-spirited celebration of
Sound Mind & Body routinely objects to the temporary street closures
that make this event possible.
The first Car-free Day in North America was held in Fremont in September
2001. Artists, businesses, and residents united to highlight the dangers
of auto overuse and to offer workable alternatives, sparking a movement which
has spread to other US cities.
Sound Mind & Body resisted the permit.
No neighborhood in Seattle has been more radically transformed by
art and community events than Fremont. Ten years ago, Fremont was not a
particularly attractive place to live or work, but through a concerted effort
by its residents, Fremont has been transformed into the center of the
universea great place to live, work, create, and recreate.
So why does Sound Mind & Body Gym continually oppose the very activities
that, by making Fremont a destination, have contributed to SMBs success?
It just doesnt make sense...
Why do business in a communtiy you seek to destroy?
Dozens showed up to protest SMB's lawsuit.
