Here's a simple summary of what's on tomorrow's agenda:
Last week, MVCSP hosted staff from Greenbelt Alliance to go over the details of how to use an EIR as an advocacy tool. Turnout to the workshop was great; over 20 people attended, some coming from as far away as Contra Costa County! We covered a lot of information in just over 2 hours. Attendees asked if the resources we shared could be accessible online afterward. Those resources are below. If there is more information that you would like but don't see here, contact Ellie Casson. If you have questions about how to read or comment on an EIR, please contact Adam Garcia and/or Amanda Bornstein.
