The Netook Crossing Development Team is 'extremely disappointed' after they say Mountain View County council dismissed their comprehensive fiscal impact analysis last week.

The Netook Crossing Development Team is defending a fiscal impact analysis study.

The report presented 11 "what if" scenarios - the most likely one, according to the document, would see $17 million dollars in net tax benefit to the county over the first 20 year period.

Development Manager Herb Styles says they're disappointed with the dismissive manner in which the county is treating the report.

According to Styles, the FIA provides a comprehensive & realistic picture of what the county will look like - with or without Netook.

Styles feels there is still an opportunity to move the Netook project forward & work with the county, but he says concerned citizens must stand up & make their voices heard.

Styles encourages anyone interested to become familiar with the fiscal impact analysis & attend the June 27th Municipal Development Plan public hearing at the Mountain View County office, as he it could be the last chance to speak out about the MDP.
