Dear neighbors,

We should be deeply saddened by this result and respect R-7A for their decision.

The delay will add fuel to the handful of SRV YMCA supporters in Alamo in their pursuit of commercial facilities and pool deep in the Hemme neighborhoods. It will also add incentive the MVHS desire to have the aquatic center built next to their parking lot. It is a loss of convenience and an ugly blow to Alamo neighborhoods that must endure the options.

Let's encourage a rapid development of the master plan for SRVHS so that the aquatic center can appropriately be convenient to the Alamo Region.

Thank you for your concerns and efforts R-7A committee,

Hal
