Following the successful conclusion of Part A, WACL would like to engage in an ongoing dialog with the Municipality of the County of Kings to ensure that CCW3 is a strong asset for the county and ALL of its citizens in terms of: recreation, business development, education, transportation, and positive tax base (with a positive cash flow for the county).
