Community Meeting Thurs, Aug 30, 2018 re SM General Plan

We invite you to participate in CAUSE's Community Town Hall meeting regarding the Santa Maria General Plan on Thursday, August 30th at 5:30 pm at the Veteran's Memorial Hall. Santa Barbara County Action Network (SBCAN) is a co-organizer of the event. We hope you will attend.

Please see the flyers below in English and Spanish and the message from CAUSE N.C. Organizer Abe Melendrez:CAUSE_SM_General_Plan_Town_Hall_Flyer-Eng.jpg


We would like to extend you an invitation to our CAUSE Community Town Hall regarding the Santa Maria General Plan. 
We know that the city is embarking on the long and necessary process of updating the city's general plan, and that there will likely be official meetings hosted by the city in the future.
As a coalition of community focused organizations, we think this would be a good opportunity to start engaging community members, inform and hear some of their input as the city begins the process. This event is being organized by CAUSE, MICOP, SBCAN, The Fund for Santa Barbara and many other community organizations. Our hope is to have 150-200 city residents engage in meaningful grouped dialogue about the future of Santa Maria in English, Spanish and Mixteco. 
We would like to give you the opportunity to be present, participate and hear what some of the community's concerns and hopes are for our great city.
The details are as follows:
CAUSE Santa Maria General Plan Community Town Hall
August 30th, 5:30pm at the Veteran's Memorial Hall (313 W Tunnell St. Santa Maria, CA)
*Interpretation, childcare and free tamale dinner will be provided
We hope to see you there. Please feel free to email me with any questions. Flyer is attached.
Kind regards,


Abraham Melendrez
