Dowtowner, the article is wrong. MATA hired KL Executive Search, a DC-based search firm that specializes in transit. They are not Shangha-based. A Google search indicates that firm described in the article is a totally different firm. And KL Exec. Search (the real firm) is extremely qualified. They are placing transit managers for major agencies across the country.
Thanks for the clarification, Naomi. I appreciate it!
Will people still be able to run the dirt trails in the park if this is a protected natural area? I ask because you are actually not supposed to run in the Lucius Burch Natural Area at Shelby Farms Park (people still obviously do this all the time). I am all for the protection of Overton Park, but I think it would be helpful to have more details on the natural area designation (besides the link the state website).
