Bill Hunt – on glare analysis – we work with the Navy – the last time – there was not a standard for a glare analysis; FAA uses “Forge” model for analysis; will met with the Base in the next few weeks; Brewer was next to XO at LSM and thinks it is not compatible with NVG and would probably be in their flight patterns; Bill has map that shows the AICUZ – where development on the ground is restricted; County GIS has the AICUZ on it;

Do consider using pollinator friendly – always native seed mixes;

Have had hives before; PPRP has a pollinator friendly scorecard
