  1. Do you know who is on the Cloverleaf Access Committee? Are there any mountain biking representatives?

    1. I don't have a list of the participants on the committee, but I do have a letter in to City Manager Chi asking what the city is doing to solicit the opinions of hikers and bicyclists. I'll probably publish the response as soon as I get it.

    2. I agree Brad, and how about notifications of these Committee Meetings?

  2. Do you know if the reduction in water was compared to last year or last month? I'm assuming the former, but wanted to be sure.

    1. I believe it is being compared to the same month in the base year of 2013, from what I'm reading. See the link at the bottom of the story for the source info.
