Community Alliance seeks opinions

Published 6:00 am Tuesday, January 16, 2007

Residents will be given an opportunity to voice their opinions on anything and everything at Wednesday’s 2 p.m. Community Alliance meeting, the first of the year.

Newly appointed Chairwoman Brett Brinegar said she hoped as many people as possible would attend and present projects they hoped to see completed.

Each year, the alliance, a diverse group of citizens, complete one or two projects around town.

Last year, the alliance helped refurbish the stone memorial in Memorial Park.

Brinegar said she hoped people would present projects they wanted completed, and the alliance would listen to all of them.

“We want people to come and present projects they think the Community Alliance should address,” Brinegar said. “It doesn’t have to be downtown. It can be anywhere in town. If they think somebody needs a playground in a neighborhood, we’ll look at that.”

Once all the projects are presented, a vote is taken on which projects the alliance should tackle.

“Everybody votes,” she said. “It’s not just limited to the executive board. We would like to hear from as many people as we can.”

Meeting times will also be discussed at Wednesday’s meeting, whether or not the time should be changed from 2 p.m. to a later time.

The alliance is open to everyone and is fee-free, Brinegar said.

“There are no membership fees or dues,” she said.
