Increasing Sales Tax Base Raises Prospects For Nipomo Incorporation

(Update: Vote in the online poll here about whether Nipomo should become a city). Today’s Tribune ran an article on the incorporation meeting we had last Tuesday, 11/14/06. The reporter, Larissa Van Beurden-Doust,, did a very good job reporting on the meeting, even though she wasn’t able to attend. She spoke both with me, as well as Mike Eisner to get a run down of the discussion, and where we are now. Overall I think the article was very positive, and quite accurate. Continue reading

Nipomo Incorporation Meeting Update–Including Latest Sales Tax Figures

The SCAC incorporation committee met Tuesday night, 11/14/06. There will likely be offical minutes posted on the official SCAC website at some point; however, I wanted to post a couple of my own comments this evening. We had a pretty good turn out. Of course, it was our first meeting for several months, which may have accounted for some of the turn out. We even had Randi Block, from the Santa Maria Times, who may be writing a story about the meeting and incorporation generally. I would estimate we had between 15 to 18 people turn out tonight. Mike Eisner would have the exact count, as he took roll. Regardless, everyone who turned out indicated that they were interested in continuing the incorporation dialogue. Everyone also expressed willingness to be part of an upcoming incorporation workshop that will be put together some time in January 2007. The focus will be to brainstorm and come up with ideas about the future of the incorporation discussion in Nipomo, how best to involve the public, slogans, educational talking points and the like. It should be an interesting endeavor. I hope others who did not make this evening’s meeting will be able to come in January. Continue reading
