The TCA BOD is forwarding a letter to BLM from State Representative Dorene Gallegos regarding the proposed EPE Substation. Attached is a copy of a letter I just sent to the BLM along with Comm. Jones and El Paso Electric. I have asked Ms. Montez to meet so that we can insure public meetings will be held with Talavera residents. I was very impressed by the level of commitment that you and the residents have on this matter. I am more than happy to do whatever I can do to help. Representative Doreen Gallegos District 52

Talavera Community Association 2018 Annual Meeting March 10th, 2018 Farm & Ranch Museum 6:00 p.m. Sorry, no food allowed. We hope to have important updates on the El Paso Electric Sub-Station project, paving Soledad Canyon and paving the last piece of Baylor Canyon. We have a number of guest speakers and some serious issues that need maximum Community participation. Please join us.
UPDATE: Passed Email from Commissioner Ben Rawson regarding possible paving of Baylor Canyon Road Dear Constituent, Thursday at 1pm the County Commission will be considering again whether to pave Baylor Canyon Rd. You may remember that in 2015 the County Commission decided to pave Dripping Springs and gravel Baylor Canyon. At the end of this fiscal year (June 30th) we will turn over the unused 1/2 million dollars that wasn’t used on this project (these weren’t Dona Ana County tax dollars). Staff is asking us on Thursday to consider paving Baylor Canyon instead of returning the money. Citing maintenance challenges
