N.I.C.E. (Nipomo Incorporation Committee for Education), a non-profit whose goal is to research and educate the citizens of Nipomo so that together we can help influence what our future Nipomo should look like, whether or not that includes incorporation. As part of that process, we have been conducting periodic workshops to explore issues that are of interest to our citizens.
On Saturday, February 12, 2011 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon at the Blacklake Club House we will hold a workshop that is different from our previous ones. There are approximately 30 to 40 different organizations in Nipomo, including churches, service organizations, youth activities, adult recreation interests, schools, non-profits, etc. As a result of this diversity of interests, there are undoubtedly a variety of opinions on what is important in Nipomo. We hope to create a forum where these various groups can come together and get to know each other and discover what issues unite us a community. The expected result is two-fold: to open up better communication between the leaders throughout our community, people who may not interact regularly. And, to develop a common vision and unified plan for making Nipomo the community in which we all want to live and be involved. Only by working together can the citizens of Nipomo have a real voice in what our future community will look like.
If you are interested in taking part in the work shop or observing the process, please feel free to come by the Blacklake Golf Resort Clubhouse. You can also email Mike Eisner at firstname.lastname@example.org
