Event description
Please join Sacramento County and the Black Child Legacy Campaign – Foothill Farms & North Highlands for a family friendly Community Workshop to share ideas about Environmental Justice (EJ) and provide feedback about community needs and how these needs can be addressed.
In 2016, the State of California approved Senate Bill 1000, which requires Environmental Justice to be incorporated within the General Plan of a jurisdiction with disadvantaged communities. EJ seeks to eliminate unfairness in the land use process and to reduce compounded and/or unique health impacts while increasing civic engagement.
A General Plan serves as a blueprint and policy framework for the physical development of a jurisdiction and addresses important community issues such as new growth, housing needs and environmental protection. By addressing EJ within the General Plan, Sacramento County will seek to bring fairness and inclusiveness to land use decisions and its approach to community engagement.
The meeting facility is accessible to persons with disabilities. Requests for interpreting services, assistive listening devices, or other considerations should be made through the County of Sacramento, Office of Planning and Environmental Review at (916) 874-5982, no later than five working days prior to the meeting. California Relay Service (CRS) is a third party interpretation service for deaf, hard-of-hearing, and/or speech-impaired persons. CRS can be reached by dialing 711 or 1-800-855-7100.
Food and refreshments will be provided.
