This letter is an expression of my support for the re-election of Loxahatchee Groves councilmen Ron Jarriel and Ryan Liang. Both councilmen have participated in the town and water control district’s efforts to get complete new and legally binding surveys of roadway/canal easements. These surveys are required before any further work can proceed on equestrian trails/greenways.
When I served on the Roadway, Equestrian Trails and Greenway Advisory Committee (RETGAC) with Mrs. Nina Corning as the chair, we worked out a full trail system with interconnections to the south into Wellington and the north to the Royal Palm Beach Pines Natural Area and on to the Dupuis preserve. Further, we presented a proposed phasing schedule to have that implemented. All this takes time and money. Regarding money — we also investigated grant proposals, but without valid surveys we could not proceed. Only when the land surveys get completed can grant proposals be submitted. Both Liang and Jarriel realize this and supported us back then and will do so in the future!
Prior to the upcoming election, make sure that you have facts and not heated rhetoric.
Dr. Bill Louda, Loxahatchee Groves
