    Good afternoon. I dropped in to the Forum yesterday, but did not stay due to the inclement weather. I left our Chapel Hill South Association’s comments and suggestions. I just want to ensure that you are aware that these were from the Association’s members only. Although we had posted the forum on our Facebook page, there had been no comments received from our community at large.

    It would be appreciated, if a summary of the Forum could be made available for us to post.
