Steamboat briefs: Oak Creek Town Board adds member, seeks 1 more

In May, the Oak Creek Town Board welcomed Robin Livingston, and according to the town’s newsletter, she “dove right into the ongoing annexation and land use applications.”

But the Town Board still has a vacancy remaining. The deadline to submit a letter of interest for the position is Friday, and the Town Board will conduct interviews at its next meeting, June 12.

Only those who have lived in Oak Creek for at least 12 consecutive months will be considered, and the appointed member will serve until the April 2016 election.

Holistic practitioners open house on Oak Street today

In Steamboat, there is a growing niche of wellness practitioners evolving on Oak Street between Third and Fifth streets. Several of the homes along Oak Street have become commercial transitional properties housing massage therapists, mental health professionals, chiropractors, animal massage and healing professionals, and others.

These practitioners, with the assistance of Mainstreet Steamboat Springs, have organized a holistic health fair open house to introduce the community to this wellness niche.  From 5 to 7 p.m. today, the community is invited to meet the practitioners in their offices in a mixer-style event, opening their offices so the public can see the facilities, ask questions and get free screenings.

Participating businesses will be identified by clusters of balloons outside their doors. Don’t miss the practitioners beyond Fifth Street on Oak Street, also identified with balloons.

The mixer-style format will include the opportunity to sign up for door prizes and treats available in many of the offices. One winner will take home a new e-reader.

For more information, call Kristen Van De Carr at 970-879-4604 or Tracy Barnett at 970-846-1800.
