Howard Advisory Committee Community Meeting

Hello Howard,
Please share this with everyone. We will be having a Howard Advisory Committee (HAC) meeting to update everyone on what has happened since November of 2015 and then gather as many Western Fremont County Park improvements from the residents on what you might like to see and get those improvements ranked by you. There are County guidelines that may outweigh our priorities, but it would be the best to at least let them know our rankings. Sunny Bryant, the Fremont County Manager, will be there, and hearing what you would like to see as a Park improvement could help get a better Park for everyone.
