Envision Avila Meeting a Big Success!
"FANTASTIC!"  This is the most heard reaction about the latest Envision Avila workshop. Also: "Productive. Respectful." The entirely different "focus group" format had community members rotating among five stations staffed by County Planning staff: Events, Traffic, Parking, Vacation Rentals, and Future of Diablo Lands. 

The ideas were recorded on sheets posted on the walls, and voted on to rank by most favored. By the end of the meeting, the message to Planning staff was clear and unanimous: MANAGE events, traffic and parking instead of widening Avila Beach Drive.  

Planning staff mentioned a summary of comments would be emailed to attendees who signed in and provided their email addresses at the meeting.  Envision Avila website:  www.envisionavila.org

Matt Janssen from County Planning leads the Diablo Lands discussion table.
