Update to Instructions for Community Issues 2017

We wanted to alert you to a small printing glitch in a block of text fields for the Demographic Summary – Form 1c.  For the Ages field in columns A) Board and B) Staff – the numbers you input are not showing when you print the form.  Please read below on how to handle this situation.

  1.  Keep on using the Community Issues file you already downloaded from the Horizons website and saved on your drive
  2. Do enter the information in all the text fields so we can extract the data from the PDF file you will email to [email protected] 
  3. When you print your completed application, if the information in the Ages field for columns A) and B) for Form 1c did not print, please go ahead and write them in by hand
  4. Make the required number of copies needed to submit your application.
  5. Please adhere to our submission deadlines
