The community meeting this evening should be short – apply the $1.5 million to salvage at least some of the homeowners property values by applying these funds to the Master Plan objective – trails and natural areas at the 10th, 11th and 12th fairways.
A neighbor on Ranch Road received a flyer that I suspect came from the Miller Court area saying to come to the meeting and express damnation (my word) of chickens in the neighborhood.
Our trip is still on for October 8 to Sweet Providence Farm in Floyd County
