TOWN HALL MEETING Thursday, March 25

Glide Revitalization will be hosting an informal town hall meeting this Thursday, March 25th, at 6pm in the Fellowship Hall of the Glide Baptist Church. This is a perfect opportunity to listen to people on the scene, ask your questions and get some answers. Glide Revitalization has been working very closely with state and county agencies on your behalf to streamline the process of recovery from the Archie Creek Fires. We understand this can be a very complicated and frustrating process, and you may have quite a few unanswered questions.

Listen to Guest Speakers from ODOT, Umpqua Neighborworks, Douglas County Public Works, and Glide Revitalization along with our own County Commissioner Kress.

You must register to participate since we must work within state guidelines for large gatherings. Only 60 seats are available in the Fellowship Hall, but we will be taking reservations for an adjacent room to handle the overflow. There, participants will view the meeting on a projector screen. You may also receive a Zoom invitation if you prefer to watch in your own home.

This meeting is reserved for those affected by the Archie Creek Fire and have been verified through our system. Please contact Elisha at 541-671-0455 or email elisha@gliderev.com to register.
