The next step in this process is the commissioners public hearing and vote. This is an open hearing and anyone may attend, and also speak (if you want). Please encourage all your friends/neighbors to attend this important meeting! There is strength in numbers and we want our commissioners to hear our collective voice, and KEEP THE COVENANT!

    Thousands of us will be impacted, and we need to voice our opposition!
