The Town of Phelps

On The Lake

On February 6, 2012 the Town of Phelps held its visioning meeting with an excellent turn-out of about 60 citizens. On March 19, 2012 there was a follow-up meeting to discuss the results of the the February 6, 2012 meeting and to develop plans for moving forward. Two reports have been generated as a result of those meetings. They may be downloaded from here.
