WE NEED YOUR VOICES ONCE AGAIN Re: The upcoming SCAG Public Hearing on the SoCal Greenprint.
When: Tuesday August 24. 4pm – 6pm
What: SCAG will be hosting a public hearing to hear from stakeholders and provide more information about the SoCal Greenprint.
Who: We need our BizFed members to testify on our ongoing concerns regarding the SoCal Greenprint. SCAG will be taking public comment during the meeting and will provide live instructions on how to testify through zoom. See a sample script below:
On July 1, the SCAG Regional Council met to receive a status update on the SoCal Greenprint as it was listed on the agenda as an informational item. However, after much advocacy, arguments and live testimony provided by the business community, SCAG Regional Council Member Trevor O’Neil made a motion to pause the SoCal Greenprint implementation process for at least 30 days and set a special public hearing after the 30 days expires. The motion was seconded. To clarify, within the 30 days, SCAG staff would be instructed to have dialog with concerned stakeholders on the plan and ahead of the special meeting. The motion was seconded. The motion was passed 25-24.
