The North Fork Valley Heart & Soul partnership is a citizen led twoyear project that invites us all to share what we cherish and love about where we live. This place has a rich history, and is home to a lot of different people, young and old.
We see this partnership as an opportunity to learn more about the valley so we can preserve and enhance the quality of life here, and build on the many successes we do have in our businesses and communities.
The Heart & Soul process is about reaching out to as many people as possible and listening to what they have to say. By listening to one other's stories, we will gain understanding about our strengths as families, groups and communities and how that strength can protect what is vital to this place, and create positive change where needed. Mr. Hogan is welcome to participate, like everyone in the valley, to share what is important to him about living in the North Fork, about what makes up the heart and soul of the area. What I understood from Mr. Hogan's letter to the DCI last week is that he values his property rights, and this is a perfect example of what the North Fork Heart & Soul aims to do — find out what matters to people so that when we make decisions about our future, we are taking into the account the values and vision of the people who live here.
