Santiago to lead community ‘visioning’ for Pollock Pines

By From page A4 | January 25, 2013

El Dorado County District V Supervisor Norma Santiago will bring a new and exciting visioning “exercise” to Pollock Pines that intends to ask a basic but critically important question, “How do you envision Pollock Pines, today and into the future?”

Monday, Jan. 28, at 6 p.m., the public is invited to attend this workshop held at the Pollock Pines-Camino Community Center, 2675 Sanders Drive, Pollock Pines.

The purpose of this workshop is an exercise where community members, stakeholders, businesses, recreationalists and recipients of every potential in Pollock Pines will be asked to identify area assets and what and how these assets lead toward economic, social, environmental and recreational vitality in Pollock Pines.

Michael Ward, an accomplished facilitator, will lead the workshop in this process. By the end of the evening, there will have greater clarity of identity, character and a vision for the future of Pollock Pines. The results of this workshop will be presented to the El Dorado Board of Supervisors and could provide a template for other communities to create meaningful discussions on their futures.

The Pollock Pines area is now a part of Supervisor Santiago’s District V, spanning from Stateline, Nev., South Lake Tahoe, the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, the Highway 50 corridor and Pollock Pines to Jenkinson Lake.

“I am thrilled to include Pollock Pines in the economic development efforts that I am working on at Lake Tahoe where I see great similarities between the community of Meyers and the Pollock Pines community,” said Santiago.

“There are many opportunities emerging right now that can create exactly the kind of community residents here want, and I am very happy to help bring these successes about”.
