Fishing is Fun and More


Good morning.  I pray all are doing great.  I wanted to start off by thanking everyone that came out for the Youth Fishing Derby this past Saturday, and to remind all to save the dates for our countyfair this summer.  

We had 167 kids come enjoy a wonderful morning of fishing at Willow Springs Pond.  The weather was fantastic for the Fishing Derby and kids enjoyed great success, cheered on by their parents.  The ponds had been stocked by the state just days before, so the action was excellent for the duration of the tourney.  We followed up the derby with a hot dog lunch and then ended by awarding numerous prizes (gift cards and new fishing poles) for winners in four age categories.  It was great watching so many kids having fun with their families, and enjoying one of our great county parks.  I hope to see many of you again at next year›s event.

Also, it is still a ways off but I want to get the El Paso County Fair dates on your calendar.  We are now just two months out from the 2019 El Paso County Fair, which runs from July 13 - 20.  Please add it to your summer to-do list and plan on coming out.  We have so much planned for you this summer, including camels, demolition derby, magicians, and all your other fair favorites.  For full details, schedule, and ticket info, visit our official event page:  I hope to see you there.

Finally, I continue to ask residents to participate in the updating of our El Paso County Master Plan.  The County Master Plan is broad and will examine county land use, infrastructure, water capacity, transportation networks, government services, and other important topics.  The aim of the Master Plan is to better serve and accommodate the needs of residents, businesses, and visitors to the county.  Citizens can still complete the Master Plan Survey online by visiting and clicking on "Your El Paso Master Plan" graphic.  The Master Plan development process will take about two years to complete and will include dozens of opportunities for citizens to voice their views.  However, the online survey is a fast, effective, and convenient way for citizens to participate in the planning process.

     Enjoy a wonderful week.
