We moved to the Plateau Valley (Mesa) in the late 1990’s. Our first encounter with Community Counts was during the height of oil and gas drilling in our area when activities were going full bore! Since we live in a rather small cattle and agricultural area with high mountains and narrow roads, the issue of safety was of prime concern then. During the boom large trucks were using our roads on a daily basis and at times they created hazardous conditions for the rural folk and especially when we have cattle drives and all that goes with rural living. CC was on that issue from the start and made sure signs were posted on our roads in case of accidents, aggressive drivers, and were very responsive to how important good relations were with oil and gas producers. Even after the boom finally ended, many of the companies left and moved elsewhere, CC has always been there. We now get reports of road closures, rock slides, accidents on the interstate, and especially road conditions in the winter to keep us updated. We have come to rely on these email communications from the staff and especially Nita, who seems to eat and sleep on the job! We would be adrift without this important information and hope they continue for along time. Being a member has been a good investment.
