Working with Temple Hall/White's Ford Neighbors
This park will not open to the public until sometime in 2011. But for those that were involved in the permit process it was a good time to get together and start laying out a productive course for the future.
We met in the main barn with free range chickens wandering though as we talked. We also reviewed the Endowment Plan for Temple Hall Farm and talked about how the entrance on Rt. 15 could be looked at if further charitable donations provided the development funding. I believe that while not everyone agreed on all issues, most people felt better about the plans and our partnership after the meeting than before.
Relationships are built through small positive steps, that over time create mutual trust, respect and appreciation. This I hope is the path we are on.
I would like to thank Supervisor Sally Kurtz, who facilitated this meeting and through the permit process sought to strike a balance.
