I would like to take a moment to quickly introduce myself to your esteemed organization. My name is Clayton Strahan and I currently serve as the Chief Park Ranger at Lake Piru for United Water. I have had the pleasure of working at the Lake Piru Recreation Area since 2008. As you may be aware, Lake Piru has been operated by concessionaires for the past 12 years. I am pleased to announce that as of January 1, 2021 United has decided to more directly manage our operations that are occurring at the Lake. As a result, it will be United staff directly operating the Lake Piru Recreation Area. While our concessionaires made concerted efforts to serve the surrounded communities, we felt now was a great time and opportunity to operate the facility without intermediaries so that we could better align ourselves in providing a best in class customer experience for our campground visitors, daily guests, and our partners in the surrounding communities.
We have many changes planned in the coming weeks and months ahead and I would welcome the opportunity to work with the Heritage Valley Tourism Board (HVTB) to get our message out. We are currently working on a new marketing campaign, will be launching a new website, and providing our guests with an online reservations system that will give them more control in deciding when and how long they want to enjoy the amenities at the Lake. In addition, I would also like to ensure that our agency has a more active membership with the HVTB . Perhaps we could discuss that in a quick initial call or virtual meeting. I personally look forward to fostering a much closer relationship with your organization.
