York Rural Community Project Feasibility Study Work Timeline

At the February 6, 2017 meeting of the YRC Feasibility Study Steering Committee, a work timeline was approved for the various steps that are required in the process of creating a rural community in our project area.  The details  of that timeline are presented in the table below.  

Notice that the last step in the process is the first one presented in the table.  In other words, we are working backwards from our end goal which is the vote that citizens in the project area will be able to participate in this coming November.
