When we create a task force to tackle an issue, we mean business.  Such is the case with our Permitting Task Force and Airport Task Force, both of which were approved by our Board of Directors recently.  The Permitting Task Force is currently working with City staff on recurring concerns related to transparency, fees, and processing times for permits.  With the recent passage of the User Fee Resolution which will allow for increasing and, in some cases, decreasing certain fees, we are ensuring that the transactions are timely and efficient.  Stay tuned for our first User's Group workshop planned for July.

The Airport Task Force will work with the Commission and City on strategies for improving air service.  With the planned addition of a contracted airport manager on next year's City budget, we may have the support of a dedicated steward who will maximize economic activity and business potential at the airport.  With an integrated plan that includes continued input from the business community and investment from the City, the sky just may be the limit for the Chico airport.

Our annual BBQ is right around the corner which means summer is almost here.  Kick off the season with our public safety teams, businesses, and restaurants who are fine-tuning their special tri tip recipes with locally grown ingredients.  See you on the 12th at Manzanita Place!
