Committees form to study impacts of Black Diamond developments

The Villages and Lawson Hills master plan developments in Black Diamond are forming citizen committees to examine water quality issues and potential impacts on Green Valley Road.

Each MPD requires the formation and use of three community committees: one for noise issues; one for water quality issues; and one for Green Valley Road issues. The water quality and Green Valley Road committees will form this month and will jointly review both The Villages and Lawson Hills. The noise committee will form when MPD construction starts.

Anyone interested in being appointed to the Water Quality Committee can meet from 6:30 to 7:30 tonight, Wednesday, in the  Black Diamond Elementary School gymnasium.

Those interested in appointed to the Green Valley Road Committee will meet from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, also in the Black Diamond Elementary gymnasium.

Organizers said they understand the meeting falls on the same day as the first 2012 meeting of the Planning Commission, so the intent is to wrap up the agenda in 30 minutes to allow for attendance at both meetings.

Each committee will includes two YarrowBay representatives, one representative from the city and two representatives from the community, all of whom will have a vote. Additional community participation is welcome and encouraged.
