Of course it's easier to say this considering they made the right decision, but through the whole process I think everyone actaully got the feeling they were listening, and while many nay-sayers kept saying their minds were already made up, I don't think they were. Having been part of a govt agency who held a lot of public meetings to justify decisions that were already made, this process just felt different, like it was real.
