I think we missed something
We're back. Sorry for the brief absence. We've were so swept up with park initiatives that we forgot to post an update after the last meeting. To summarize... We didn't get the SOAR grant, which was disappointing. After we found out the news, we immediately started refocussing our efforts towards getting this project moving again. We met with all the counties, including their executive leadership, and they all reaffirmed our commitment towards helping us get this park open. We're working through those plans tight now, so hopefully we'll have some good news in the coming months... Stay tuned!
Holding Out For a Hero
Today, a delegation of our board held interviews for our park project manager position that we've posted about. The board was blown away at the level of talent that turned out to lead this amazing opportunity at bringing something special to our community. Every person interviewed brought something unique inspiring to the table. It truly is a situation where we wish we could hire everyone. Due to the high-caliber of each candidates, the board will need some time to deliberate and attempt to make the tough decision on picking our first project manager. We should be able to announce the results of the interviews by our next board meeting.
