This week has been crazy busy and I am uninspired, so here are a few highlights.
· The dedication for the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument will be on Saturday, March 19 at 10:30, at “Cowboy Camp” along Highway 16. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell with be there along with Smokey the Bear. This is a huge day to celebrate!
· Things are in the works for a Salmon Festival, November 1-5. It will include a week of various activities including a salmon feed on the Friday and a big day of activities on the Saturday. Sorry, no fishing contest!! Stay tuned as this develops.
· The commercial project proposed for the Northeast corner of Main/Railroad was delayed at the City Council meeting as parking issues are still in need of resolve. This is a really nice project and we will work through some of the issues. Stay tuned.
· Kudo’s to the Parking Committee and their RFP which will be released next week to work toward the development of a long range parking plan. Lot’s of work went into it and the members should be congratulated for their efforts. They are helping move downtown into the next phase as it evolves into that truly premier destination.
· Congrats to the Winters Senior Foundation on their trip to Reno this week. 30+ people went and they had a GREAT time. Look for future events from this emerging and dynamic group!
· The Hispanic Advisory Committee will be holding a planning meeting on Monday, March 21 at City Hall beginning at 6:30, this will be chance for persons to become active, provide input and help chart a course for the coming year.
Finally, a reminder for a couple items:
