Our Future is in Jeopardy

PNC staff and board members met with CCC Director Bruce Saito, Regional Director Jose Phillips and Conservationist Supervisor Carrie Monroe on December 5, 2018

The meeting was very positive, although no commitments were made we’re are moving in the right direction. We discussed the concerns of the CCC, which revolve around access, safety and utilities during construction, and believe we provided adequate answers and alternatives.

The next step is for the CCC project folks to discuss how to incorporate our presence during construction into the bid package and for PNC to provide some follow up details on their concerns.
The board will be discussing the situation at Monday’s meeting. In the meantime continued community support would be helpful in the form of letters to the director.
