Letters to the Editor on the General Plan Update

On August 6, the VC Board of Supervisors decide what policies will go in the county’s Draft General Plan Update. Adding strong environmental policies will become more difficult after that, so now is the time to speak up.

Following the release of the Preliminary Draft of the VC General Plan 2040 update, 350 VC Climate Hub submitted recommendations on changes to reflect the increased urgency with which our county must respond to the Climate Crisis.

We need people from throughout the county to let the VC Board of Supervisors know that care for our environment is essential, and that they need to incorporate those recommendations to buildĀ  strong policies for environmental sustainability in the VC General Plan update.

Letter-writing will make a big difference in the campaign to add strong environmental policies in the General Plan Update.
