Judy, Amy, thank you both for your work and support on our General Plan project. This has been an incredibly arduous, stressful and frustrating experience for all involved. But it has also been fun and challenging! It has been especially rewarding and educational interacting with the many professionals and consultants on the team, and dealing with all the different issues. Thanks again for all your efforts, and your willingness to be so flexible under very trying and demanding conditions. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed.
