|In the spirit of capturing an accurate
record of events in our community as reference and learning tool,
Jules Hart of Eye Goddess Productions has been filming Big Sur public
meetings and workshops since last summer. Her project began with
capturing the "Buyout" meeting sponsored by Dave Potter last summer
and has included video documenting LUAC meetings with GPU staff from
August through September as well as CPOA's General Meeting in October
of 2003. Jules is currently focusing on the Periodic Review hearings.
VHS formatted tapes of these meetings will be made available through
the Big Sur Library.
||A small group of CPOA members is
currently pursuing the filming of a documentary on land use planning
in Monterey County. The purpose of the documentary is to capture
- in real time - members of the community as they interact with the
public process concerning the General Plan Update. By interviewing
individuals, we hope to explore the various perspectives and challenges
faced by residents, policy makers and the like. We also are creating
a tool that will help broaden and deepen understanding of the many
complex issues driving land use planning in our county.
CPOA's documentary committee is developing this project with the
help of a team of film professionals: Jules Hart (Video Documentation),
Marla Young (Writer), and Steve Rosen and Terri DeBono of Mac and
Ava Motion Picture Productions.
|The CPOA General Meeting Program
Committee is responsible for identifying current issues of broad
community interest and organizing a speaker forum to bring fresh
and diverse perspectives to the residents of Big Sur. CPOA believes
that through education and discussion, our community will remain
vital and engaged in the public process for the benefit of residents
and property owners.
General Meetings occur on an as needed basis and
are typically held on a Monday at the Grange Hall.
