At the October 2017 Unincorporated Services Meeting Supervisor’s Chan and Miley committed to begin the process to create a municipal advisory council (MAC) for the communities of Ashland, Cherryland, San Lorenzo and Hayward Acres. The process will begin in earnest via the Ad-Hoc Committee whose members will be appointed by the unincorporated area supervisors. Four appointees from the District 3 office and three from District 4’s office. The charge of the Ad-Hoc committee is somewhat unclear at this stage but reasonable assumptions can be made that the clarifications of land and planning use along with the purview of the MAC to hear varying issues will be explored. How often and where the MAC will hold its public meetings could also be on the table for exploration. The Ad-Hoc Committee is set to begin meetings sometime in early February 2018.
