The Dixie Fire Collaborative Steering Committee has continued to survey residents of Indian Valley to determine what residents want in the rebuild of downtown Greenville. They surveyed people at the December Community Meeting, sent out surveys via email, and held a survey meeting in Taylorsville last Monday evening.
This Monday, Jan. 16, the DFC will hold another survey meeting in Crescent Mills at 7 p.m.
The meeting will take place in the Crescent Mills Market (formerly Gigi’s Market) along highway 89. The meeting will be brief.
The survey will be explained and distributed, and when people complete their surveys, the meeting will adjourn. The information gathered will help the DFC steering committee determine where to put their efforts and how to make the best use of the $3 million good faith contribution made by PG&E in May of 2022.
There will be one final opportunity to take the survey at the Jan. 21 DFX Community Meeting to be held at the Greenville Elementary School Cafeteria from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Along with the surveys to determine priorities in downtown Greenville, the Dixie Fire Collaborative steering committee, is looking to rotate its membership and for other Indian Valley residents to step up their efforts. It is a committee of 11 voting directors and two non-voting co-chairs that decides what the DFC will do and what it will financially support.
One position represents Indian Falls and the other represents Indian Valley. Nominations will be made and voted on at the meeting. If anyone in those areas is interested in helping guide the DFC, please consider running for one of those positions and of course, attending the Jan. 21 meeting.
All general members of the Dixie Fire Collaborative have one vote. There is no cost to become a member and anyone interested in the Dixie Fire recovery is welcome. Organizations may also join after being vetted by the Steering Committee and they also have one vote. Membership forms will be available at the Community Meeting.
“Come hear the latest recovery news and let your voice be heard by voting and completing the survey,” said Steering Committee member Kest Porter.
