The MAC, as we call this group, continues to meet monthly – at 6 pm on the third Thursday of the month – to advise me (as the District 4 supervisor), the overall Board of Supervisors, and the Planning Department on land use and development-related issues in Penn Valley. There are numerous zoning and development projects working their way through the Planning Department that we will be reviewing over the next few months. Additionally, we have regular presentations from relevant agencies, like the great presentation we had in February from NID’s General Manager Jennifer Hanson. Jennifer presented on our watershed’s precipitation data, water storage levels and historical trends, as well as the Plan for Water process, which examines water demand, supply, risks, and strategies. The public is invited to be involved in that process, which is taking place right now, in a series of meetings. The next meeting, on April 19, will cover Stage 3 of the Plan: Watersheds. This will include a review of watershed management, cultural awareness and sensitivity. You can attend online through Zoom or watch the recording later at www.nidwater.com/plan-for-water.
We have two vacancies on the MAC, if you are interested in joining us. Please visit the MAC’s webpage for more information on member eligibility requirements, meeting agendas, and more: www.mynevadacounty.com/pvmac.
