    The reasoning skills of our elected officials leave much to be desired.

    Since when is a maximum an average?

    “…our Board is concerned about the preferred alternative decreasing the number of visitors from an average of 1,200 to 300 users per day. This represents a 75 percent decrease and would greatly impact the experience of park visitors.”
