In 1998, members of the Pajaro Valley community agreed to come together in an attempt to move beyond the conflict and lack of coordination among the various interests in the region. A diverse group of residents, including business, agricultural, environmental, local government, labor, education, health, and others formed Action Pajaro Valley (APV), a non-profit organization, in 1999.
Action Pajaro Valley reached some significant milestones, such as:
Action Pajaro Valley’s successes were due largely in part to community members coming together to declare the mission of the organization as the following:
“The mission of Action Pajaro Valley is to create a positive future for the residents of the Pajaro Valley by facilitating an ongoing collaborative process for planning, informing and serving as a resource for community decision-making.”
Action Pajaro Valley is proud to host this website as a resource for the community to access information about the Pajaro River Watershed.
Funding support for this website is provided by a grant from the California Department of Water Resources Proposition 50 Integrated Regional Watershed Management Program (IRWM).
