Beaumont Collaborative Agencies Committee Changes Administration

BEAUMONT, CA – For the past two years, the Collaborative Agencies Committee of Beaumont has been administered by the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District, which has hosted meetings and provided staff support such as meeting preparation and note-taking. This responsibility shifts every two years, and will now be provided by the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Recreation and Park District.

The regular meetings of the Committee are held the first Wednesday of every other month, however the July meeting has been canceled due to the Independence Day holiday.  The Collaborative Agencies Committee will next meet on Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 5 p.m. at the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Recreation and Park District office, 390 W. Oak Valley Parkway, Beaumont.

The Committee is comprised of representatives from local agencies who meet to inform, update and collaborate on local public projects and activities to most efficiently and cooperatively serve the public. Participating on a regular basis in addition to the BCVRPD and BCVWD are the City of Beaumont, Police Department, Beaumont Unified School District, Beaumont Library District, Beaumont Chamber of Commerce, County of Riverside, San Jacinto College, and San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital.

Since its first meetings in 2010, the Committee has successfully added value and facilitated cooperation between agencies in projects such as the maintenance of Bogart Park and the bridges over the wash at Beaumont High School to keep motorists and pedestrians safe. By serving as a communication venue and open discussion forum, the committee is a valuable tool to local agencies in the efficient delivery of public services.
