The district could either abandon the project entirely, or try it again, he said. “Well have to look at it again,” Lipsky said of the remodeling. “We’ll have to see what changes might be possible in the plans.” He commended the volunteers who helped get voters to the! {Kills. “It’s inspiring to see the amount of effort and work put; in by these people in an attempt to secure a successful vote,”! said Lipsky.
