Calling all past and present members of the Auberry and surrounding communities for a night of progress! As community members and generations of families from the foothills, we owe it to ourselves, our founders, and future generations to join together and move towards long-term and sustainable solutions to make Auberry and its surrounding communities a vibrant place for decades to come.
The steering committee for ‘Revitalize Auberry’ has engaged Fresno State in a potential partnership to help us solve some of our toughest challenges, such as resilience to groundwater depletion, providing updated technology to the region, and the switch to long-term sustainable solutions. With their assistance we hope to create a “bottom-up design thinking” model for rural communities around the world.
Dean Michelle DenBeste of the College of Social Sciences and Thomas Esqueda, Associate Vice President for Water and Sustainability, will be in attendance to participate in the discussion.
Topics for discussion may include :
Creating Networks to Support Entrepreneurs and Micro Business Development
Thinking Local - Supporting Local Businesses First
Helping Start New Businesses in Our Community
Implementing a Downtown Revitalization Program Potential for a community center
Organizing Farmers Markets and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
Developing Visitor Amenities
