Los Osos Community Advisory Council’s first Town Hall and Community Gathering was a success.
“It was wonderful to see our community come out, connect, share, listen and learn,” and event organizer said. “More than 16 organizations were present informing residents about valuable resources available. “Our Active Transportation Committee, which is working on getting a multi model bike path on Los Osos Valley Road between Palisades and Monarch received a lot of support, which will help advocate the need for this safe path.”
Community members who attended the event held at the at the Red Barn also got a sneak peak at the Basin Management Committee’s annual report about groundwater and LOCAC candidates met with their constituents.
LOCAC said that they hope the Town Hall event will become an annual one as well as and a stepping stone for “bringing our community together.”
Don’t forget to vote on May 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Los Osos/Baywood Park Chamber of Commerce parking lot, 781 Los Osos Valley Road.
