UPCOMING EVENT: Thursday August 29th at 6 pm – Review of County’s Sustainability Plan & development of our response

The work of AEL is being recognized by agencies and organizations in the region.  It is very exciting to report that  we’ve been invited to participate in three multi-jurisdictional planning efforts related to the 1) future of transit,  2) expansion and industrial development the Western Placer waste disposal site, and 3) housing allocations in the six county Sacramento Area Council of Governments’ realm.

If you are able to represent AEL at one of these confabs, please contact me:

1) Placer Sacramento Gateway Transportation Plan Stakeholders Meeting (three 4 hour meetings)

2) Solid Waste Management Working Group (WPWMA) (monthly meetings)

3) Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) Housing Allocation Working Group  (undetermined)

Thank you to Chris, Jan, Leslie, Cheryl, Larissa, Save Granite Bay, Audubon Society, Sierra Club Motherlode Chapter and others for contributing funds to pay our legal bill to Shute Mihaly Weinberger for the letter they prepared for the DEIR on the Sunset Area Plan and Placer Ranch Specific Plan. The letter also set the case for the Citizen Initiated Smart Growth Plan to be part of the Sunset Area Project EIR and be analyzed as an environmentally superior alternative to the County’s Plan. We have a funding shortfall of $800 for this legal letter. If you are able to make a tax-deductible contribution to pay off our legal expenses, please, send your check to the Planning and Conservation League, 1107  9th Street, Suite 901,  Sacramento, CA 95814.  Make a note in the memo line that it is for AEL.

That’s all for now.

Together we’re a stronger  voice.
Leslie Warren, Chair
