May General Membership Meeting

The proposed JEDD
GUEST SPEAKER: Dave McIntyre, Township Trustee

What a fantastic meeting! Dave provided the attendees with valuable information on the proposed JEDD. We learned this project is still in the fact-finding stage and no final decisions have been made. Dave is exploring all avenues to learn more about how a JEDD can benefit the township. We also heard many hard-hitting questions and really appreciate the input from the people who could attend.

Dave will return to a meeting in the fall and update us on his progress in shaping the JEDD for Rootstown. Details will be sent out closer to the date.
