December 2nd Construction Public Meeting

​On December 2nd, CFPUA held a public meeting to discuss the current status of the Marquis Hills Area project and to provide additional information about the mandatory connection process that will follow the project's completion.  

The meeting led off with a presentation that spoke to the project's history, its current status, some issues of concern, and the mandatory connection process.  Information was provided about an algae bloom that had formed in an area of Silver Lake and how test results reviewed by the county and the state showed that CFPUA's project work was not a cause.  The presentation given the night of December 2nd can be found here.

CFPUA, TA Loving, and county staff were on hand to answer a variety of individual questions for about an hour after the presentation was over.  For more information, please contact Mike McGill, Chief Communications Officer, at 332-6704.



Newsletters

Update - February 27, 2015

During our pre-construction meeting held back in October, CFPUA staff stated it would provide regular updates - via an emailed newsletter - to anyone supplied their email address to us. Thanks to the community’s cooperation, we have received contact information for dozens of people in the project area.

Attached is the first edition of the project newsletter. It provides a rundown of current construction, details upcoming work, follows up on outstanding concerns, outlines the project’s timeline, and repeats important contact information.

We believe you will find this information helpful over the next 24 to 30 months. We ask those of you who are recipients to share the information with their neighbors and invite them to sign up through me to receive email updates.

The newsletter will also be posted online on the Marquis Hills Area Project page found under Quick Links.

Email alerts will continue to be used in between the newsletters, if necessary.
