Glen Ellen Forum

Glen Ellen Forum

Many voices. One community.


WELCOME to the glen ellen forum!

I believe that diversity is what strengthens a community. Our ability to create positive change lies not in our similarities, or what we can all agree on, it lies in our differences – different experiences,
different backgrounds, different people. However, I do believe we have much more in common than we don’t; at a minimum, we ALL have a deep love for the village of Glen Ellen and want to ensure it remains a beautiful and thriving community. This was the purpose for creating the Glen Ellen Forum; a community organization that could proactively stand together to preserve our town.

To grow the Forum we are currently:

  • Applying for Non Profit status, so that we can apply for County TOT grants
  • Seeking a permanent location to host our monthly community meetings
  • Securing the business insurance necessary for a meeting venue
  • Growing our website and social media presence and ensuring they are kept up to date
  • Fundraising to support our operating expenses (non-profit application, business insurance, website hosting, etc.) and more importantly, community projects.

So please,  join us at the next Glen Ellen Forum and become  a part of our community of do’ers!

Thank you and Slán,

Michael Furlong
Chair, Glen Ellen Forum

Future Goals for Glen Ellen

Preserving and enhancing village life are two of the goals for the Glen Ellen Town Forum. To ensure that any growth or changes in the village are beneficial for all, we all need to be proactive participants in the larger conversation about what, where, and when changes occur. With that in mind, the Forum would  like to share two energizing ideas that we believe will greatly enhance our community. We have also included a draft 5-year strategic plan. This plan is intended to start a conversation around how our community might enhance village life, while ensuring the charm and rural character are not sacrificed.
