October 2018

Dear Neighbor,

On behalf of the WRA, I would like to thank everyone who participated in the Sixth Annual Art and Garden Sale. It was a resounding success. We also appreciate the positive feedback from many of you about our efforts, programs and commitment to community safety issues.

The CWPP moves forward following a strong community showing and excellent presentation to the Board of Supervisors by Santa Barbara County Fire. More information will be forthcoming as the team moves froward to finalization of the plan. The success of the presentation put the CWPP effort back track and more in keeping with the needs and desires of the San Marcos Pass community, the front country residents and the county fire department. Additional information will be posted on the WRA website front page as it becomes available.

The WRA Annual Business Meeting was held on September 29th at Cold Spring Tavern. The meeting included the presentation of the Annual Report. The officers for the next year:

Michael S. Williams, President-Executive Director
Ugo “Butch” Arnoldi, Vice President
