By chance, I ran into two Rivercross residents separately yesterday and today and during our conversation both asked:
... why wasn't I aware of the Rivercross arbitration settlement and RIOC meeting tomorrow on subject?
I did not have an answer for them.

Also, note that the Westview ground lease agreement, which was the subject of an April 3 Executive Session RIOC Real Estate Advisory Committee meeting, is not on tomorrow's RIOC Board meeting agenda.

UPDATE 4/19 - Agenda items were approved.
