If you want a template, I'd be happy to oblige:

Dear Councillor Farr:

I am writing you to express support for City's position, supported by the Beasley Neighbourhood Association and other individuals and citizens groups downtown, that Hamilton Health Sciences be denied an application to re-zone lands near the Hamilton General Hospital to enlarge their existing surface parking lot at Ferguson and Barton streets.

Despite evidence that the enlarged lot is not necessary and contrary to existing plans for the lands, HHS continues to use taxpayer funds to fight the City and its citizens who have expressed their concerns about safety after dark, negative environmental and health effects, and the impact an enlarged lot will have on City efforts to make Beasley a more liveable neighbourhood.

I urge you to work with Hamilton Health Sciences, the lot owner, and Beasley residents to find a safer, healthier, and more community-minded alternative to surface parking lot expansion. Thank you for upholding a high standard for development in Hamilton's downtown.

Sincerely,
