Re: Nealon Neighbors Formally Object to Well in Nealon Park for Private Country Club in Sharon Heights

Dear Ms. Lowe,

I see nothing in your staff report about neighbor opposition to this
project. Nor do I see the letter below in your Staff Report.

Why was this not included even with a request to do so?

Regards,

Elizabeth Houck.
