Dear Interested Citizens of Botetourt:

Some days there are just too many things happening and Saturday, October 24, is one of them!!

In addition to the Catawba Creek monitoring workshop scheduled from 10am-2pm on the grounds of Roanoke Cement, there's also a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day (http://botetourt.org/news_events/meeting_detail.php?event_ID=264) at the Solid Waste Convenience Center on Catawba Rd. from 12:30pm -4:30pm. Very convenient to go there after the water workshop!!

There's another very important event on October 24: the Botetourt Comprehensive Plan Forum #1 (http://botetourt.org/news_events/meeting_detail.php?event_ID=261) which will be held at LBHS from 9-11am and at JRHS from 1-3pm. It's very important for citizens to envision and comment how they would like Botetourt County to be in the next 5, 10 or even 20 years. This is your chance! For those attending the Catawba Creek workshop, I can only suggest being at LBHS right at 9am and staying for 40 minutes or so, before heading to the cement plant.

The second public forum (on December 5) will focus on identifying, evaluating and prioritizing implementation options for achieving the county's vision.

Please contact me if you need further info on any of these events.
