SBCAN Roundtables: North is cancelled, South is rescheduled

SBCAN North County Roundtable

We have decided to cancel our North County Roundtable meeting that was scheduled for Thursday, April 11. We will meet next month on May 9 at 6 p.m. at Giavanni's in Orcutt. 
Meanwhile, next week on Thursday, April 18, several of us are going to Standing Sun Winery, 92 2nd Street in Buellton at about 6 p.m. to watch "Broke," a film by long-time SBCAN member Gail Osherenko about the Refugio oil spill. Gail will be there to engage in a discussion about the issue.  She will be joined by Linda Krop from the Environmental Defense Center. Please see the flier below. I hope you will join us.

SBCAN South County Roundtable

Friday, April 19, Noon to 1:30 p.m.

Santa Barbara Foundation, 1111 Chapala Street, Suite 200, Santa Barbara

Our April meeting has been rescheduled from April 12 to April 19; still at noon and still at the Santa Barbara Foundation.

We’ll focus our discussion on an examination of housing-related issues now in the legislative arena in Sacramento having to do with both housing development and renter’s rights. Some of these are proposals that can have major local impact.

And please pencil in the May Roundtable—May 10—featuring Rob Fredericks, director of Santa Barbara City Housing Authority, to talk about plans and possibilities for developing middle class affordable housing.

Thanks, and we hope to see you at these meetings!

Ken (and Dick Flacks)
