We had a special visitor at the February 12 Board meeting. Newly elected 5th District Supervisor Bruce McPherson joined us for dinner and shared the wide-ranging concerns already being addressed within his first month in office, and then asked about our concerns. From fracking , to continuing to work toward a bike route to school for SLV High and Junior High students, our County Supervisors deal with many significant issues.
Of particular immediate interest in the 5th District is the series of Town Meetings that Supervisor McPherson has been sponsoring to focus on the Town Plans (written with intense community involvement in the early 1990s), to see what is still relevant and whether they can still be used as a continuing guideline for future planning. A number of important improvements in each town has been made as a result of the Plans (including the undergrounding of electrical power) and they are remarkably thoughtful. All three plans are available at Supervisor McPherson’s website , where the schedule of town meetings will also be posted.
