Havlik was re-elected as MAC chair and Ellen Cypher was re-elected as vice chair.
Johna Hurl, monument manager, said she is working with Atascadero and Santa Margarita on possible agreements as gateway communities, similar to the existing agreement with Taft.
An event is being planned for April 10 on the Carrizo to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the National Landscape conservation System, with details to be announced closer to the event.
