OH, SORRY, TRUSTEE MICCICHE.

GO AHEAD. THANK YOU, CHANTELLE.

I JUST WANTED TO HAVE SOMEONE EXPLAIN THE PROCEDURAL POSTURE HERE THAT THIS IS NOT A FINAL DECISION, AS I UNDERSTAND IT, BUT BUT SIMPLY A DECISION THAT WOULD ALLOW US TO HAVE FURTHER CONSIDERATION OF THIS PROPOSAL.

IS THAT CORRECT? TRUSTEE MICCICHE, THIS IS DUANE.

YES, THAT IS CORRECT.

WHAT THE BOARD IS BEING ASKED TO APPROVE IS TO SUBMIT THE APPLICATION TO THE COMPTROLLER.

THE COMPTROLLER WOULD THEN CONSIDER THE APPLICATION AND IF APPROVED, IT WOULD COME BACK TO THE BOARD AT A LATER DATE IN THE FORM OF A DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT THAT THE BOARD COULD CONSIDER AT THAT TIME.
