Vol. 19 No. 1 - January 5, 2019

Correction to caption on page 16 (Monument Planning Commission, Dec. 12: Delaney to step down; Sanctuary Point Filing 5 Final Plat approved): Ed Delaney has volunteered in numerous capacities for our community almost 38 years. He began serving on the Monument Planning Commission in 1981, joined the Landscape Committee in 1985 and served on the Monument Board of Trustees from 1989 to 2010, where he was mayor pro-tem for eight years. He took a year off and then returned to the Planning Commission, and his last meeting as Chairman was to have been in December 2018. He has also served on the Monument Sanitation District Board and represented them at the Tri-Lakes Wastewater Treatment Facility Joint Use Committee. OCN would like to thank Delaney for his service.
