    Bob Burke Government Center in Joshua Tree, CA

    San Bernardino County Supervisors Meeting

    At this meeting the Supervisors are scheduled to vote on adoption of the Countywide Plan (Policy Plan). The meeting will be held in San Bernardino and also via video at satellite sites including the Bob Burke Government Center in Joshua Tree, with COVID protocols.  All the details for locations and commenting can be found in the first 2 1/2 pages of the Agenda. The Countywide Plan vote is Item #100 (but many of the earlier items will be incorporated into one vote on the consent calendar). For comment support, see MBCA's recent News Update that introduces MBCA's letter sent to Land Use Services staff and the Supervisors with our plea that the 2007 Community Plans be incorporated into the Plan rather than repealed.

Read this email that outlines the situation and directs you to more detailed preparation for your comments.
