Letter from the EPC Chair
Happy Spring to all!
It is hard to believe how quickly time is passing. Season is starting to wind down in Wellington already; seems like it just started a couple of weeks ago. As our seasonal residents begin their departure, I wanted to update you on some EOZD happenings that are coming up soon.
First, Monday, April 6th from 6-10pm is a Town Hall meeting at the Village Hall. Opinions and ideas are being sought for the Master Plan process that will be actively moving forward this summer. It will start with an Open House format with maps and data, and at 7pm all attendees will participate in a poll. I know you have a lot going on, but your input is valuable. Please attend for as long as you can to help design this community's future.
Second, Tuesday, April 14th at 7PM at Village Hall is the final public meeting on the paving of the southern half of Saddle Trail Park. My understanding is there have been some changes, including a large increase in the costs associated with this project. If you have an interest in this, please attend this meeting. I know that many of you will be gone at this time, but you could have friends or family attend on your behalf. Remember, government needs to see people in the seats at the meetings in order to hear your voice. Speaking is optional, but filling out a comment card at the meeting and sitting in the seat is a crucial piece. This may be your last opportunity to weigh in on this important subject.
Finally, this summer will be a busy one for the staff and the EPC as we work on the Master Plan for the EOZD. Wellington will be conducting surveys and using social media for ideas and feedback. Please utilize these tools to express your thoughts on ideas for the future. The goal is to have everything ready for public comment during next season before adoption. For your reference, here are the tools available:
- The current survey is here: https://epa.surveyanalytics.com/; future surveys will always be on the website homepage on the events scroller
- People can keep up with meetings here: https://wellington.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx or by clicking on the meetings and agendas button at the bottom of the homepage

Until next time, stay safe and enjoy the ride.
