SMCCCD Agenda (Aug 25) - Crystal Springs course: Crystal Springs packet (pages 133-136). August 25 - minutes. Hi all, Please share broadly with the Cross Country community as this is critical for the continuation of meets on the facility. The SMCCCD engaged in a mediation exercise between the Belmont Homeowners Association and a few representatives of the XC community to find a resolution involving the number and magnitude of the meets. The mediator could not bridge that gap, so it will now be up to our Board of Trustees to make a final determination. On August 25th at 6:00 pm (Crystal at 6:40), the SMCCCD Board will hear public comments to make a final determination and it is incumbent upon the XC community to represent their interests and the interests of all students who race on that course to ensure operations can continue to take place. Again, please share this broadly to ensure your voices are heard. You can find the Zoom link on the following page. https://smccd.edu/boardoftrustees/calendar.php Thanks, Andreas Wolf Dean/Athletic Director College of San Mateo 1700 W. Hillsdale Blvd. San Mateo, CA. 94402 650-574-6462 email@example.com
