Fresno County is considering an amendment to its General Plan Policy Document pertaining to certain infrastructure needs of disadvantaged communities and is seeking the public’s input on the proposed changes.
The amendment is part of the County’s Senate Bill (SB) 244 analysis effort. SB 244 requires cities and counties to specifically consider certain infrastructure (water, wastewater, stormwater drainage and structural fire protection) needs or deficiencies of their disadvantaged communities. The County has identified thirty-six (36) disadvantaged unincorporated “legacy” communities, which are communities located outside incorporated city limits or beyond the sphere of influence of any specific city.
Public participation and input on these issues is important in helping to identify the specific needs of communities and determine the appropriate level and economic feasibility of meeting those needs. The County Department of Public Works and Planning will conduct the following community meetings to answer questions and receive input from residents, community representatives, service providers and others on the proposed changes and how they affect these communities:
- Tuesday, January 28, 2020, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Riverdale Memorial District Memorial Hall
3085 W. Mount Whitney Ave.
- Wednesday, January 29, 2020, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Fowler Branch Library
306 S. 7th Street
- Thursday, January 30, 2020, 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
Tranquillity Branch Library Meeting Room
25561 Williams Street
