A small group of engaged Valentine citizens attended the public information meeting last evening to discuss the City of Valentine Comprehensive Plan. The plan looks at population trends, housing issues, land use and recreation among other areas. Cherry County has lost population from 200 to 2010 and is down about 2500 residents since the peak in about 1960. The City of Valentine has declined about 140 residents during that time. ON the housing issue, research show about 4% of housing is rated excellent, 45% good, 36% sufficient, 12% challenged and 2% deficient. The group is nearing the end of the process and will have final results soon. For more information go to rdgusa.com/crp/valentine. That web site link is on the KVSH.com website.
