Letter regarding land use issue at the base of A Mtn - Maxie and Marc Faffs read a letter that has been drafted. Support was expressed for the letter. Karen proposed that the letter be shared in advance with Menlo Park Neighborhood Association to see if they are supportive of it, and send it on if they are. There was a concern raised that there are many points made in the letter that are in conflict or tension with one another. There was a motion to approve the letter and authorize Faffs to check with Menlo Park Neighborhood Association in advance of distribution, and to distribute the letter if no issues arise and to consider any issues raised by Menlo Park prior to distribution.
