  1. Well, nothing discussed live about the Greenway. However questions are being allowed to be submitted in writing for up to 15 days, I believe was the timeframe. We will have to keep an eye on written testimony somehow.

    • You’re right Scott. I have subscribed to the Subcommittee’s email list. Hopefully, we’ll be get apprised of any written testimony.

  2. Please leave are very limited riding area’s alone
