I thought I'd add a little clip from a meeting in June when the District Board discussed multiple delays in a program to protect endangered fish and habitats in Stevens, Coyote, and Guadalupe Creeks, called the FAHCE/Three Creeks Habitat Conservation Plan.
Some directors had expressed frustration with delays at regulatory agencies, which I think is a legitimate thing to be concerned about. I made the point that we also need to accept some responsibility for the delay due to expanding and then contracting the scope of the project, and because the program kept getting switched between managers:

Nobody disagreed with my point. I think we're working hard to fix things, and that both the Board and staff are willing to take responsibility for fixing things.
