 Green means GO Update

Thank you to county staff for requesting that the Green Means Go agenda item be taken off the 5/4/21 agenda.

After raising many questions about the Green Means Go program at the 4/13/21 Board of Supervisors (BOS) meeting, the Board asked staff to bring the item back at the 5/4/21 BOS meeting. However, it has become clear that there is a need to take a step back and determine if the program is a good fit for our county. There are still many unanswered questions and a general lack of clarity regarding the Green Means Go program.

IF staff brings the Green Means Go program back to the Board in the future, we will keep the public informed so that our residents are able to engage in the process.

Thank you to our residents who sent in comments and raised concerns about the program. We appreciate hearing from you.
