Promoting Participation in the Moraga Community

Meet the Candidates

The Town of Moraga typically holds an annual Goal Setting Workshop at the beginning of each calendar year. Deviating from the usual Saturday morning session of previous years, the 2014 session was held on a Tuesday evening at LaSala with over 35 residents working with the full Town Council as well as the Town Staff department heads and Town Manager. Here is a summary of the goals proposed by Mayor Ken Chew and endorsed by the other Council members.

  1. Maintain excellent in stewardship
  2. Maximize existing resources for enhanced community use through partnerships and agreements
  3. Celebrate the Town’s 40th Anniversary around the Pear and Wine Festival in September and the Historical Society dinner in October
  4. Enable the organization to respond to opportunities as they arise

To read about the specific details that fall under each of these categories, please click here to read the staff report. Additional objectives were identified and agreed upon during the working session:

  • Partner with the Chamber of Commerce to support a focused Shop Moraga First promotion to Moraga residents
  • Analyze General Revenue expenses of each park facility and the Hacienda
  • Research whether or not TSAC should sunset
  • Draft a usage abatement ordinance to address blight and other violations of the Municipal Code
  • Delay the adoption of a Preservation Ordinance until April 2014
  • Create a Planning Commission review process of Development Applications
  • Begin a discussion of long-term solutions to the Moraga Police Department staffing

Our Mission

Moraga Citizens Network is a grassroots organization dedicated to encouraging participation in the life of Moraga in these ways: First, we provide or direct members to non-partisan, factual information on current issues. Secondly, we assist the town staff in publicizing public meetings and town-sponsored events when needed. Finally, Moraga Citizens Network announces many recreational, educational, and fund raising events offered in Moraga by the Town's service organizations, library, non-profit organizations, and Saint Mary's College - all towards the end of promoting participation in the Moraga community. Our primary tool is a bi-monthly e-bulletin called The MCN Link, which you can receive by signing up here.
