First District Supervisor Susan Gorin will hold a meet the merchants meeting and a town hall meeting in Kenwood Wednesday, Feb. 19, to discuss general concerns for residents in the Kenwood community.

At the meet the merchants gathering, from 3 to 4 p.m., Gorin will be at the Kenwood Restaurant, 9900 Sonoma Highway in Kenwood. The informal event is a way for Gorin to connect with local merchants and exchange ideas. This is the second of three “Meet the Merchants” events, and is being sponsored in partnership with the Sonoma Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Later that evening, at the town hall meeting, representatives from Transportation and Public Works, California Highway Patrol, and Regional Parks will be in attendance.

The Feb. 19 town hall will be the first of several planned throughout Sonoma Valley in 2014. Gorin said, “The community of Kenwood has expressed concern on a number of issues. It is my intention to receive input from Kenwood residents, and bring some of our county and regional resources to the community to address areas of concern.”

The meeting will be held in the Kenwood Depot, 314 Warm Springs Road, Kenwood.
