Author Posts September 2, 2012 at 5:00 pm #997765 griffinfeathersMember I was hoping to post the work of our community zoning commission. Is it too large? 140 pages. I copied it in from my computer in MS Word. I am a first time user. Please advise? Thank you, Jennifer Blog url: http://vmbzoning.wordpress.com/ The blog I need help with is vmbzoning.wordpress.com.
