COUNTY RAMP AND PARKING
Richard Leydon reported that the plans for the county parking and ramp had been released and did not include commercial use by LGI.

It was suggested that board members attend the meeting and reach out to commissioners by letter. Rhonda Olson suggested that if the final plans haven’t provided commercial island access, an island-wide campaign will be necessary to lobby for such.
