The meeting is at 7pm in the Veteran’s Memorial Civic Center at 28 N. Washington (just North of the intersection of Burdick and 24). I suggest parking in the back where there is lots of space. Please try to grab a seat by 6:00.

I don't know what the format will be for speaking but I have a presentation to give......... I just don't know if I will be given the chance. So, if someone can get on the list even if you don't want to speak and can defer to me, that would be great. (I don't know if they will allow that or not)

For sure, restaurants too.

I can say for a fact that every time we go wheeling whether it is the Mounds or R&V we get gas, drinks, snacks, and end up eating somewhere in the area. I'd say that is around $100 or so that would be going to businesses in the Oxford area.

So is there anyone from the Trail bike segment of the ORV community been showing up to these meetings? All I have noticed show up are the Full Size vehicle community.

Default Final call - action required

I strongly urge you to come, after what happened last night, if that happens again tonight, this WILL fail. Please pack the room, the lobby, the hallways, parking lot, etc. I suggest someone getting names of all the people who are there and in support of this (mini-petition) because if you can't all fit and they won't allow everyone to speak, then you can at least show them all the supporters, urge them to hold a second session to allow EVERYONE to speak, you will have to make your presence known or else this whole thing goes away!

I wish we had time to get bright shirts made that we could hand out at the meeting so everyone would know who was for it just by a visual perspective.

my guess is if it like other publics hearings, each person will get about 3 minutes to speak, no powerpoint or anything along those lines, now you could bring a hand out for the board members to educate them during and after.

There is NO vote tonight, just the hearing, the vote will occur next month when all of you will need to come out again!

Good call, as I can't understand why these neighbors would want another huge subdivision in their backyard. How is that going to be on noise and traffic.

How many board members? I may give each of them a copy of my speech if I get cut short.
