The leaders of the two cities and one town of Lamorinda are getting together to compare notes.
An annual tradition of a joint meeting of the councils of Lafayette, Moraga and Orinda continues with a Thursday meeting. The joint meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday in the Sequoia Room of the Lafayette Community Center, 500 St. Mary's Road. Lafayette.
In an email, Lafayette City Manager Steve Falk provided an example of comparing notes: "After the councils indicated an interest in working together to provide regional emergency response, the three cities jointly purchased a backup radio system and also jointly hired a consultant to study and revise our emergency plans to ensure that they were consistent with each other."
On this year's agenda:
- Fire and medical emergency response services.
- Potential for bidding capital projects together to capture economies of scale.
- Update on land use developments.
- Senior Village Concept in Lamorinda.
Senior Village refers to a concept popping up in various areas where members sign up for a group that provides support for senior citizens to stay in their own homes.
