Children’s Summit To Focus On Community Planning

Sponsored by:

Murphys, CA — Making children part of Calaveras County´s General Plan is the focus of the 2006 Children´s Summit taking place Friday at Ironstone.

First 5 Calaveras Executive Director Karen Pekarcik says the county should be planning communities that result in kids growing into healthy adults who can afford to live here.

The summit begins at 8:30 a.m. at Ironstone Vineyards.

Local officials will look at including a recently completed children´s master plan into a potential General Plan update.

The children´s plan is called Our Children, Our Community and is a 10-year master plan for Calaveras County children and youth.

The theme of the day is “Building relationships to sustain safe and healthy communities for children and families.”
