With the assistance of Region 2, the Litchfield City Council and Planning Commission are updating their master plan.

I have lived in Homer for a little over two years now, and during that time I operated under a quiet anonymity. People may have noticed me, as I picked up my kids at school or at the library, but they did not know my name or anything about me.
