My Position on Planning Groups

Today our Board heard several hours of testimony regarding the RTRTF’s recommendations and Planning Groups and came to a unanimous decision. While there has been a lot of speculation about what I would do, my position has not changed. I have said from the beginning this is about liability. Today we added a layer of protection for the county by requiring formal training and establishing a zero tolerance policy for Brown Act violations within the planning groups. I want to thank the community for its input and appreciate the time many took to share their thoughts on these matters.
