This looks like a great opportunity to get input from a group that has no ulterior motive except for smart planning. I wish I could be there to hear their input.

Did Wolf Mountain get sold? I heard rumor it did..if so, that should be considered.

Yes, Robert. Surely the resort developers will be in attendance. Our hope is that there is a good showing amongst the rank and file residents as well.

We have also heard rumors of Wolf Mountain being under contract, but have not seen any confirmations. We have also heard rumors of grandiose development and expansion plans.

Thanks for the quick reply. Please post an update to this meeting and any confirmed reports from the Wolf Mountain project for those citizens that cannot attend.
