The Castro Valley Municipal Advisory Council (CVMAC) has launched a new website with information, quick links and other tools to help residents plug into the services and agencies of Alameda County government.
CVMAC was created in April 1981 to advise the Board of Supervisors about the issues and concerns of Castro Valley residents. Castro Valley is one of the largest unincorporated communities in California.
"For some time, the CVMAC has wanted a means of providing an easy to find information as well as a direct way for residents to reach the Council,’’ said Cheryl Miraglia CVMAC co-chair. “Prior to this people had a hard time even finding the meeting agendas.”
The new website has information about CVMAC; how to contact its members; calendars of future meetings, minutes of past meetings and many other resources.
The CVMAC is made up solely of Castro Valley community members. They are nominated by District 4 Supervisor Nate Miley, who represents the unincorporated areas of Eden Township including Castro Valley.
Each member is then appointed for a four year term by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors. The CVMAC Land Use meetings are held on the second and fourth Mondays of each month and the General Purpose meetings are held on the third Mondays of the month at the Castro Valley Library located at 3600 Norbridge Avenue.
“With www.cvmac.com reaching fruition, residents can now easily access CVMAC information and stay up to date on what is occurring,” said Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley. “This website is a tool to engage Castro Valley residents and we hope that it will encourage more community participation.”
