Master Plan 2022 Community Meeting

  • Meher Mount 9902 Sulphur Mountain Road Ojai, CA, 93023 United States (map)

It has been five years since Meher Mount's first Master Plan was adopted in 2012. In that time, a number of goals and projects in the plan have been implemented while others have been modified or changed.

Now, it is time to update the Meher Mount Master Plan for the next five years.

    Your participation does make a difference. The existing Master Plan 2012 started with a series of community meetings in 2004 and evolved from there.

    At the 2017 community planning meeting, the group will brainstorm ideas, projects, and goals. It will also help prioritize the projects for the coming five years.

    The day after the community meeting, the Board of Directors will meet to discuss the comments and ideas presented and begin work on the updated Master Plan for 2022.

    A future meeting will also be scheduled to give feedback to the community on Meher Mount's long range planning.

    Plan now to attend on Saturday, July 22, 2017, to share your ideas, insights and thoughts.
