    Thanks to the land development team

    Editor:

    I want to thank the land development team who presented at Conifer High School regarding the rezoning and development of the area behind Safeway. They were professional, patient and transparent in their process.

    The article in the Canyon Courier stated that no one spoke up in favor of the project. While that is true, please know there were those of us in the audience who came to listen and be educated.
