The Oak View Civic Council (OVCC) has been around since the 1950s, but was recently in danger of being disbanded and dissolved, according to OVCC President Chris Anacker. A recently elected board is now working to revitalize the body.
“The Board consensus was to take a fresh look at exactly what to help coordinate and perhaps add a new twist in some way, in an attempt to reinvigorate participation and focus on some new accomplishments,” said Anaker. “As we reevaluate people's interests, we are seeking fresh ideas.”
OVCC has now launched a Facebook page and discussion forum for community members to share ideas for the Council's future work.
