Pollock Pines Community meeting postponed

From page A5 | March 29, 2013 |

El Dorado County District 5 Supervisor Norma Santiago had to cancel the previously scheduled March 25 Pollock Pines Community Meeting when several events occurred that would have affected the best possible results for those participating, according to a statement from the supervisor’s office.

“I am not willing to compromise the process or the product that the community designs, so I postponed the community meeting to ensure optimum facilitation, participation and results,” said Santiago from her Placerville office on a break from the Board of Supervisors public meeting.

“Michael Ward and my assistant were both out of town, and I was scheduled at the last minute to meet with the California Director of State Parks which encroached upon the preparation and travel time from Sacramento to make the Pollock Pines meeting,” Santiago added.

“This is too important of a process to the Pollock Pines community to deliver anything but the best possible conditions for community engagement,” the supervisor insisted.

The Pollock Pines Community Meeting will now be held on Wednesday, April 3 at 6 p.m. at the Pollock Pines/Camino Community Center located at 2675 Sanders Drive.

Pollock Pines is the first community to engage in Community Economic Development Committee endorsed processes that allow residents in their communities to create a vision along with advisory councils that forward community design recommendations to the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors for possible funding and project approval.

“Pollock Pines is leading the way for other communities to copy their successes and I’m very excited about their progress, but also very sorry to inconvenience anyone by rescheduling the meeting,” Santiago concluded.
