The business community and the public -- anyone interested in learning how we collectively can create a more economically robust Surface Creek Valley -- is invited to a community meeting on Tuesday, March 27, at 6 p.m. at the Civic Center in Cedaredge. At that meeting, the results of the recent Surface Creek consumer and business survey will be presented by Greg Brinck, administrator for the Town of Cedaredge, and Kami Collins, executive director of the Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce. The two entities have teamed up to facilitate a conversation about how they, the business community, and consumers within the Surface Creek can more effectively work together to enhance and support the local economy.
After survey results are presented, the community is invited to engage in an honest and open dialog about what's working well within the Surface Creek and what areas we can improve upon. From this discussion, the group will identify their top priorities and then develop community-driven action steps to begin addressing those needs.
"The survey has now closed, so the best way to have a voice in how the community moves forward is to attend this meeting and get involved," Collins said. However, if you cannot attend the March 27 meeting but are interested in helping and/or submitting feedback, please email Brinck at email@example.com or Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
