A special presentation by Communities That Care and the Chaffee County Youth Alliance features at the top of business items to be addressed at the May 8 Buena Vista Board of Trustees meeting. The board meting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Piñon Room of the Buena Vista Community Center.

The county-wide Communities That Care effort was organized following community assessments that showed county youth outcomes could be improved. A community capacity gaps analysis showed important risk factors for positive youth outcomes. They include availability and early use of substances, and permissive parental attitudes toward substance abuse and early use.

Led by Miki Hodge, the CTC group includes representatives of all major youth-oriented organizations, government, law enforcement and healthcare entities county-wide. It came together to call itself Chaffee County Youth Alliance, with the mission to serve the community by creating opportunities, removing barriers and allocating resources to cultivate positive relationships and promote youth and family well-being.

Focusing on airport activities, trustees will consider a resolution approving the transfer of funds from the Central Colorado Regional Airport to the Cortez Municipal Airport, a routine procedure done every four years; consider a hangar ground lease, and approve a flight testing lease agreement with Leonardo Helicopters.

Trustees will consider an ordinance vacating a portion of right-of-way within The Farm subdivision and hold public hearings on liquor licenses for The Evergreen Cafe and Casa Sanchez 3.

At the end of the public meeting, trustees will adjourn to executive session for discussions on water rights matters.
