    Hello there

    I am currently a student at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa.

    I am studying towards a Masters in Sustainable Development. I am very impressed by your initiative and drive for this vision.

    I have an assignment that is centered around the idea of a sustainable city with reference to the city of Cape Town in South Africa.

    I would love to include a propoal for a center for sustainabble economic development as South Africa has to balance environmental sustainability along with social and economic sustainability in a particular manner given its history of uneven social and economic devlopmen.

    Please could you send me a document that outlines your coucil, abroshure or propectus or something along those lines as I would like to include your initiative as an example of a successful sustainable economic development project.

    Kind Regards from South Africa

    I am interested in seeing New Hanover River Rd. become a scenic byway. To that end I have prepared a screening application to NCDOT as the first step. A non-profit or governmental group needs to the actual applying. Perhaps your group would be interested in this effort.
