New State Park On-Line Comment Period Now Open
“The meeting was very well attended. Phil Lilley and I actually had to wait in line to enter the building. The crowd was very pro-park. If there was anyone in the room opposed to the park, they were doing a good job of hiding it,” said Brandon Butler, CFM Executive Director. “I am looking forward to speaking with attendees tonight at the Bryant Creek meeting in Ava.”
