TAAG History

TAAG has no staff but these volunteers.​

TAAG was established in the early 1990s to help represent Templeton and the North County on issues of development within the community. TAAG and its purposes were formally recognized by Resolution 94-144 of the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors on April 5, 1994.  The area for which TAAG provides comments is the same area as the Templeton Unified School District (TUSD), and has the same boundaries as the TUSD -- a land area of 58 square miles. The TAAG board is composed of nine volunteers -- seven delegates and two alternates. They are residents of the Templeton area who are selected by registered TAAG-resident voters in annual elections held in March.
