LCVA News – April 5, 2015

The agenda for tomorrow’s (Monday) Board meeting is below, apologies for the delay in publishing the agenda.

Please expect a more detailed community e-mail later this week. One of the highlights is the finalization of the contract between El Rancho de las Golondrinas and the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources. This paves the way to begin the monitoring of over 40 wells in our community to assess impacts and changes in the aquifer feeding our springs and ponds and is the source of water for all our wells. The monitoring plan is expected to begin in April/May but we have to come together as a community to fund it ($10,000 per year). There is no more important issue before us.

Emphasizing the importance of the LCVA Annual Meeting, at the May 2 meeting the following Board positions are up for nomination/election.

Mary Winter, Upper La Cienega
Kathryn Becker, La Cieneguilla
Robert Romero, Lower La Cienega, west side of La Cienega Creek.

Of serious community concern is how to respond to the three proposed 1 acre lots in La Cieneguilla at the end of Calle Lisa.
