Committee established to create a better Cherokee Village

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Photo submitted. Members of the newly established A Better Cherokee Village Committee recently met at Cherokee Village City Hall. Members include, from left: Pat Sasfai, Lynn Maxedon, Cherokee Village Mayor Lloyd Hefley, Laurence Bronson and Jason Rhodes. Not pictured is Tracy Webb.
Avocado colored appliances and tangerine shag carpet dates a house in much the same way as buildings and structures in ill repair. For this reason the A Better Cherokee Village Committee has been established. The group will be responsible for creating a long term plan for Cherokee Village.

Sept. 1, the group held their first meeting at Cherokee Village City Hall. Lynn Maxedon presented images of various locations in the city which were intended to bethought provoking in respect to ideas for the next 20 years in Cherokee Village. Some of the images included signs, Omaha Marina and other structures. The consensus of the committee was that many areas of the city are dated.

Some of the responsibilities of the five member committee include conducting a formal needs assessment, preparing a vision statement and creating a community blueprint.

Maxedon said the committee has established an e-mail account where area residents submit ideas that might benefit the city. However, Maxedon said only e-mails that include names will be considered. The e-mail address is abcv@centurytel.net.

Good Luck to this commitee . How about taking time to look at the camping area, bath houses etc...This could be a real asset to the area especially for visitors to the resident of

the village...And future property and home owners...

They need to remember most public(SID) buildings like Omaha Center are not city owned we the villagers own them. Also part of the charm of the village is our unique looks. We don't need to become vanilla like some other communities.

If they really want to update, paint city hall return to the natural color it was not that pink salmon california look.
