    Hi, I am wondering what happened to the presentations for the ADU tour being available online? The tour on my bike took all my time and I was hoping to be able to view some of the presentations online. Thanks Catherine

      Catherine, the presentations from the ADU Tour will be posted once they’re processed. This may take a couple weeks.
