Dear Editor,

I attended the meeting on Monday night with opposition to the Riverwalk Development.  

Several deciding factors made me change my mind in favor of this project:

Civil engineer Jon Lowry’s presentation indicated how the project would succeed.

While I sat and listened to a similar presentation at the Hillsboro Economic Development Corp. meeting, Jon had a passion and drive that this will grow and they will not give up. 

Landowner and developer Pat Muller confirmed this, saying quite firmly: this won’t fail. 

Ashley Frederick, Hillsboro’s city auditor, said what the low interest rate would be for this project.

Lastly, comments that former auditor and City Commission President Mark Forseth made indicated the project will be great for the community. 

The Riverwalk project will be good for Hillsboro.

Sincerely,

Rick Nelson

Hillsboro Economic Development Corp.
