San Andreas, CA — A local group has formed to watch over growth in Calaveras County.
It is called the Community Action Project and is made up of various citizens throughout the county.
Group coordinator Ward La Valley said the first project will be to get a handle on planned and proposed growth in the county. Armed with that information, he says, citizens can have a voice in government and the decisions that affect their quality of life.
La Valley also said the group would be encouraging the county to update its General Plan, which hasn´t changed much in 20 years, according to him.
