Attachment 3 is a summary of the survey findings. Two items of correspondence regarding the project comprise Attachments 4 and 5. Attachment 6 contains the MAP mailing list. A fourth quarter report combined with an independent evaluation of the project are presented in Attachment 7 as well as the agenda and a list of participants in a dissemination conference.
