Sheila and I want you to know that we support the proposed multiuse trail from BBR to Sisters.

We have come to our conclusion after reviewing the web-site: blackbuttetrail.com describing the scope and nature of the proposal trail and after weighing the concerns of the opponents, we conclude the positives outweigh the perceived negatives.

We are among the 61% of BBR who favor the trail as reflected in the results of the professional survey commissioned by the BBR Board of Directors.

We don't want a vocal minority to control the decision. I have observed the opposition to other multi-use trails and upon their completion, the feared negatives do not manifest themselves, and the completed trails quickly a loved addition to the communities contiguous to the trail and I have no doubt that this will be the case here at BBR.

Sincerely,

Bill and Sheila Swanson
