We had 7 persons attend a strategy session regarding the south park bridge. 3 board members were present (Chris, John, Bob) and 4 residents. We reviewed the site and the options and decided that option 4 was preferred.
It should be noted that two of the homeowners were opposed to building any sort of bridge in the South Park, however the rest generally supported a bridge. They recommended that we survey the community at the annual meeting.
