Community Engagement Works! 
Dear RVR Members,
Thank you for your continued engagement on the amendment question that will go in front of the Town of Carbondale Planning & Zoning Commission on Thursday, Aug. 26. We have updated the webpage River Valley Ranch Integrity ( with information that was covered at the annual meeting as well as documents that many of you were interested in reviewing.
As part of the strategic plan there have been several members of the community that have agreed to take the lead for designated neighborhoods on continued outreach efforts. If you haven’t heard from anyone yet, don’t fret, we will be in touch soon or if you have a question please email us at The first big deadline we are looking to hit is submitting letters to the Town of Carbondale by close of business, Thursday, Aug. 19.
