BRAWLEY, Calif. – Whether or not millions of dollars come to the Imperial Valley could be decided at next Monday’s environmental public workshop.
State officials plan to meet with the local community on Monday to discuss pressing environmental needs.
This is part of the plan to implement Assembly Bill 32 which deals with global warming issues.
Comite Civico del Valle (CCDV) is the local environmental organization that organized the event.
They say it’s important for the community to attend because the state is looking to invest in disadvantaged communities such as Imperial Valley.
CCDV staff members say the public needs to be involved in the state’s decision process that affects their community.
CCDV organizer Humberto Lugo says community involvement is critical.
“It’s important that they ask the questions that maybe they haven’t asked when it relates to climate change. And we’ll have plenty of information there, we’ll have people there networking there and having more insight and if anybody has a question they can ask it to anybody there,” Lugo said.
The workshop is Monday, April 4th, at the Brawley del Rio Branch Library, 1501 “I” Street, from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. The general public is invited to attend this free workshop.
