Concerns were brought up: Member Gloede is concerned about the word Severe used throughout the document and does not want this to limit opportunities for disabled persons. Brynn Henderson noted that this word is written in the State Use Law and should probably remain.

    Member Bryson commented that it is a great plan but has concerns about level of resources needed to accomplish goals. He asked staff if they think this can be accomplished. Corrie and Brynn both mentioned they think it can be accomplished however, the fact that they are not allowed to travel and have lost the ability to do outreach to the level needed, is a great determent Task Force member, Craig Mitckes suggested that the plan reflect the dates of 2013 – 2017 as we are already half way through 2012.
