SBCAN NC RT: SM General Plan, SM River project, premium pay for grocery workers and more at our NC Roundtable on Thurs. SC RT postponed.

Below is the agenda for our North County Roundtable on Thursday, Aug. 12 at 5 p.m. 

We are tentatively planning our South County Roundtable for next Friday, Aug. 20 at noon. We will send more information on that in a few days.

We hope you’ll come to our North County Roundtable this Thursday, Aug. 12 at 5 p.m. to hear about relevant issues SBCAN is involved with in the North County.

We will hear from Santa Maria city staff about the Santa Maria General Plan Update, from SBCAN staff about the Santa Maria River Healthy Watershed Project and from UFCW 770 about efforts to direct some of the American Rescue Plan's funds towards essential workers in our county. 

We will also hear an update about the push to change the Santa Maria school board logo and the city logo and we'll give an update on the Neighborhoods project.

Please let us know if there is anything else you would like to discuss.
