January 2, 2018 Update

Hello Arroyo Partners and Happy New Year: 

We started 2018 with a blast of Artic weather making it’s way down to the RGV and bringing freezing temperatures and rain/sleet with it. We don’t mind the precipitation but can do without the freezing temperatures.  

Now that the Update to the ACWPP is complete, the Partnership is ready to work with stakeholders to implement the plan. We will be hosting a meeting on January 18th from 2 – 5 to discuss the plan and hand out copies of the WPP. See details below. Hope to see you there!
