unw tist dwe have taken on the leadership.in coordinating and. pushing
S the reviti alization of Lake Apopka, with I think a notable 'degree of
Success already in the vital area of comtmtting interagency and cn-
unit cooperation and participation, I would not look forward t a
Radical change in the responsible organization prior to the opetio
S- th is most important project. -
q Such a change would, no doubt, cause delays, increased expenses, and
in other ways set back the program substantially. 'rTherefogre it
.?.ould appear that any transfer Oa territory involving- Lake Apopka,
the Oklawaha River Basin and related chain of lakes would be most
s unwise and not in the public interest at this time.
I -tak cooratt ad pt
: It is anticipated that the revitalization project wil take at least:"
P- 36 months to achieve most of the desired objectives, I would hope tht
Slook forward to receiving your comments on this matter. As always,
thanks for -your valued consideration. .
