mayor’s september message
Welcome to fall!
Over the last several months, your City Council has been working on a myriad of projects, some of them long-standing that will provide significant enhancements for our city into the future. In Old Town Newhall, we are well underway with construction of a new 30,000 square foot library in Old Town Newhall. The state-of-the-art library will serve as a focal point for our Old Town, and with its children’s library, teen resource area, dozens of public use computers and public meeting areas, it will be a wonderful amenity for our city. If you would like to see the “real time” progress of the library, check out our “Library construction-cam” on the City’s website at: www.santaclaritalibrary.com.
On behalf of our Chamber of Commerce and the City, I would like to encourage you to attend the 27th Annual SCV Community Expo (also known as the Home and Business Expo) and Taste of Expo on September 16, 17 and 18 at the Santa Clarita Sports Complex, 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway, just off Golden Valley Road in Canyon Country. Access is easy and central to the valley via the Cross-Valley Connector. Expo offers new and expanded parking adjacent to the event, along with complimentary shuttle service.
The Expo committee is pulling out all stops to attract the largest crowds ever: Free admission on Saturday and Sunday, free parking, complimentary shuttle service and expanded parking areas. In addition, College of the Canyons will host their fall job fair on site and Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital medical staff will administer free flu shots on Saturday for seniors and qualified caregivers. For more information on this great event, visit www.scvchamber.com.
One of my top priorities as your Mayor is reaching out to you, our residents. I can be reached via email at: email@example.com. If you would like to meet, please contact my office at city hall at: 661.255.4395. Your thoughts, ideas and suggestions are important to me and I look forward to hearing from you.
As a council member, Marsha is committed to working with the community to protect the environment and quality of life for our residents. Marsha is the founder of the S.C.V. Canyons Preservation Committee which successfully co-sponsored legislation to acquire funds for the preservation of Whitney and Elsmere Canyons. She also rallied citizens, business organizations, environmental groups and state and federal legislators to save Santa Clarita from being home to the world’s largest garbage dump that would have been seen from our valley floor and would have loomed over the ridgelines of Elsmere Canyon to one and one half times the height of the Washington Monument.
I am always available to hear from you. Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call my office at: 661.255-4395.
