From the CCAC email listserv
  1. We talked last time about updating our focus areas and representatives/liasons for them.  See attached for our prior listing.  Three questions:
    1. Are these the right areas we should be “focusing” on?  Others?  Different ones?
    2. Which of these do YOU want to spend some time on and reporting to the group?
    3. Do we want to give more routine “focus” to these areas in our agendas than we have been?  How?  Or other suggestions?
  2. Leslie will not be able to attend, so will someone please volunteer to take minutes?  Let me know if you are willing/able to do so.
From the above email attachment, the proposed focus areas of the CCAC
  • Neighborhood matters
  • Economic development
  • Infrastructure (Transportation,
  • roads, utilities)
  • Schools
  • Downtown district growth and development
  • Parks and Trails
  • Gateway edges, buffers and rural
  • areas
  • By right projects
  • Police/fire/rescue



** Because this is a more editorial comment from me: when you show up to get informed and speak your mind *only* when a thing directly affects you, you are a NIMBY. Don’t be a NIMBY. Be a member of the entire community, we all benefit when that’s the case.

Further, don’t be these people: (this tweet is in reference to Brookhill, but it’s a pathetically widespread sentiment)
