This General Plan "Boot Camp" will be a concentrated (and fun) 31/2 hour training session that will help you participate effectively in the GPU process. It will cover:
is currently proposed in the Draft GPU, and how to make it better
Draft EIR on the General Plan Update, and how to comment on it
- How to speak out effectively for a better General Plan Update
The future of Monterey County is at stake! Attend the "Boot Camp" on Saturday March 20th, and then attend the Planning Commission hearing on Monday evening, March 22nd.
We need a General Plan Update that will:
our incomparable natural resources and prime agricultural lands
affordable housing opportunities for local residents
- Prevent more traffic gridlock and water overdraft
We can have that kind of a General Plan, but public participation is vital!
