Springs town-hall meeting features Gorin
A Springs town-hall meeting with newly seated First District Supervisor Susan Gorin will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 14, at the Sonoma Valley Grange Hall.
The Springs Community Alliance will host the event.
Participants will be able to ask questions and state their concerns to the new 1st District supervisor.
This is a chance to talk about issues that are important to the Springs community.
Steve Cox, chair of the group, said they decided to invite Gorin to kick off its town-hall meetings.
“Supervisor Gorin has demonstrated that she is very interested in the Springs community by her support for the Highway 12 improvement project. We want her and members of the Springs community to get to know each other better, and the sooner, the better,” Cox said.
The town-hall meeting is the first in a series of what the group hopes will become twice-annual meetings to be held in the spring and in the fall. Cox said the meetings will be held twice a year because they require a lot of planning and organization, “and we have limited resources. We think quality is better than quantity.”
Previously, when the group was known as the Springs Task Force Coordinating Committee, or STFCC, there were quarterly town-hall meetings.
Cox said the fall meeting will probably be more of a forum. “It’s an opportunity for the community to receive updates from local government agencies and nonprofits,” he said. “And an expo to promote small businesses in the Springs and provide an opportunity for Springs business owners to get to know each other better.”
Because of the limited parking at the Grange, additional parking will be available nearby.
The Sonoma Valley Grange is located at 18627 Highway 12.
