Patient Quivirans Urge Informed Vote

On  April 26th, Quivira foundation members will have a chance to vote on an opportunity to purchase the land that borders our east side (the site of the failed development plan known as “The Links at Quivira”).  The vote will be whether to authorize Quivira to purchase the land using a financing plan provided by the undersigned group of Quiviran’s (known as the Patient Quivirans), and if approved would result in Quivira owning the land free and clear in less than  8 years without requiring a dues increase.

The April 26th meeting will begin with the Board conducting an information and discussion session, and presenting their recommendation.   You are also encouraged to call any of the undersigned with any questions you have concerning this important vote.
