Valentine New Comprehensive Plan
Wednesday, 26 June 2013 05:54
The City of Valentine Continues to work on the comprehensive plan which will guide the decision making process over the next ten year period. The last plan was done in 1999 and plans are usually thought to be adequate for about ten years. RDG Associates has been work with community members since spring to gather information about the community and what the citizens would like to see. There have been previous public meetings for residents to express thoughts on what is important to them in the coming years. Tuesday night a group of people met with the consultants to go over issues faced by the city. The discussion began around more utilization of the Cowboy Trail and its Corridor and covered housing, signage and business development. Another public input session will be held Wednesday evening from 5 to 7pm at the library for anyone interested. Anyone who would like to find out more before tonight's meeting, can go to rdgusa.com/crp/valentine for more information.
Save the Golf Course Effort
Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:56
A group of local sportsman are asking for a show of community support for the Deer Park Golf Course that has served the Valentine area for over 40 years but was not opened by the owner this year. It is still unclear what the future holds for the old course or construction of a new course at a different location. The group will be circulating petitions throughout the community to allow people to show support for a golf course in the community. Petitions are available at the studios of KVSH, Isom Insurance office and will be at Youngs Western Wear this Saturday. The show of support will be used in future planning efforts for a golf course to serve the community. Area residents are encouraged to stop and sign a petition or contact Steve Isom, Jerry Reynoldson or Doctor Dick Jeffers.
