Wanted: Your dreams and ideas for the Mountain

Come to the United Way Roundtable Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 5:30 p.m., Frazier Park Library

By Patric Hedlund

Opinions are never in short supply in the Mountain Communities, but places to share your ideas and dreams to really make a difference are rare.

Jill Egland of the United Way of Kern County invites you to join a conversation about your observations, concerns, opinions, visions, fears and dreams for the future of this community on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 5:30-7 p.m. at the Frazier Park Library.

“If you bring the ideas, I’ll bring the refreshments,” Egland said. “We want to listen. We have quantitative data about your community, but numbers aren’t the whole picture. We need qualitative data to make programs successful. What do people feel? What do you want? What are your aspirations for this area?”

Egland urges you to call Marie Smith at Frazier Park Library (661-245-1267) to say you are coming, but drop-ins are welcome also. A report will be brought back to the community and the county in the spring of 2014, Egland said.

This is part of the December 6, 2013 online edition of The Mountain Enterprise.

Have an opinion on this matter? We'd like to hear from you.
