Duane and Elaine Knott, Country View and possible clinic Yes, we now have a name for the new Senior Housing complex at Walnut Grove. It will be called Country View. We appreci- ate the Housing Task Force's many ideas. Removing of the buildings is beginning. Next will be the hiring of he marketing man- ager. It seems to be moving forward too slowly, but when something as impor- tant as this happens, patience is a virtue. Another very exciting happening at Country View is the possibility of a med- ical clinic. This idea was shared with the EDA board a short time ago and the board wholeheartedly approved of the idea. To have a medical clinic attached to this complex would be a wonderful serv- ice to Country View in addi- tion to serving the commu- nit),. It is more than likely to be staffed more than 1/2 day per week as our clinic is at the present time. The EDA Board is working with Tracy and will be meeting with the Tracy Area Medical Service shortly to work on a plan.
