#313 / LandWatch
LandWatch Monterey County is a community-based, nonprofit organization that seeks to promote and inspire sound land use policies through grassroots community action.
I was the first Executive Director of LandWatch, and I am still connected. In fact, today I am attending the annual LandWatch fundraising event, held in Monterey. The LandWatch office, by the way, is in Salinas.
I still remember the very first meeting I attended on behalf of LandWatch (which at that time was a very new organization). It was a public hearing on a water-related topic, and when I introduced myself to someone in the audience, after the meeting, the person I talked to said this: "LandWatch? Well, you better stop watching, and actually do something!"
That's good advice for all of us, LandWatch members or not.
