Imperial County General Plan Environmental Justice Element Community Meeting in Palo Verde
Time: 9/28/2017 6:00:00 PM
Place: 1051 Desert View, Palo Verde, CA 92266
Imperial County has recently reviewed State legislation, SB 1000, Chapter 471, Statutes of 2016, Section 65302, Mandated elements in a general plan, subdivision (h), subparagraphs 1 through 4) stating that the County must prepare a "Environmental Justice Element" on or by January 1, 2018.
Imperial County is seeking to implement State Bill 1000 and to prepare the new "Environmental Justice Element" to be included as part of its General Plan. The County will work along with local environmental agencies, e.g. Environmental Justice Taskforce, Comite Civico del Valle and local cities to create this document. It will also include a public outreach program for input by local residents from disadvantaged communities for the purpose of identifying the existing conditions and problems to seek solutions through appropriate programs.
It is the intention of the County to use the new Element, its goals, objectives, and policies to integrate these new programs with those of other governmental agencies.
