Green New Deal a topic of combined North & South County Roundtables on Thursday

Here is the agenda for a combined North and South County Roundtable for this Thursday, March 11 at 5 PM.
The two Roundtables are combined this month due to the countywide nature of the items, especially Item #1, and because we hope our participants will join the Community Environment Council’s Webinar on Climate Resilience on March 12 at 10 AM. Information on that is at the bottom of this agenda.
We hope you can make it.
Please let me know if there are items you would like to see discussed beyond the topics listed.
