On June 11, 2019, Greater Palo Cedro Area Chamber of Commerce board member Kelly Lindblom provided a presentation to the Shasta County Board of Supervisors (BOS) regarding the Envision Palo Cedro Initiative.
Lindblom shared that Palo Cedro is facing development pressures with proposed projects like Tierra Robles subdivision and the 24-hour convenience store and the local Chamber group wanted to form a proactive organization that seeks strategy for a growing community. Lindblom said, “Population in California is growing, and development is imminent. We must be proactive by forming a strategy. We need a grassroots community involved vision that has a regulatory framework to support it. The Palo Cedro area lacks a specific policy and/or regulatory framework to define and we need to protect our values.”
Envision Palo Cedro has constructed a survey for community members, please take the time to give your input.
Lindblom shared that in February, the steering committee met for three hours brainstorming a strategy. Now they would like to see community input.
