 RE:  Waterway No. 1 Design Meeting

 Dear Shane,

             Thank you very much for your excellent presentation at last night’s Waterway No. 1 Design meeting in Laurelhurst.  We appreciated the opportunity for our neighbors to learn about the background work you have done in addressing design issues on the site as well as the examples you provided of other important work you have done for the City.  Your experience and expertise was extremely helpful to our neighbors in understanding the options and the maintenance issues.  We especially appreciated your suggestion that stewardship responsibilities be divided among various components of the project.

             We look forward to working with you as we move forward with this project.
