VENTURA, Calif. – The Ventura County Board of Supervisors is seeking self-nominations for community members to participate in the County’s Climate Emergency Council. The Board is seeking participation from residents from the communities of Saticoy, El Rio-Del Norte, Nyland Acres, and Piru. The deadline to submit nominations is Sunday, October 11 at 11:59 p.m.
“We have a growing awareness of how important climate change is and its impacts in the world and on the state of California, said First District Supervisor Steve Bennett. “The process of receiving self-nominations gives the Board of Supervisors the opportunity to receive applications from interested individuals and appoint someone from each of their communities. This allows us the opportunity to bring the General Plan alive right away.”
The purpose of the Climate Emergency Council is to advise the Board of Supervisors on climate action planning and implementation of the Climate Action Plan goals, policies and programs that have been identified as part of the 2040 General Plan effort.
“We are excited to have residents in our area within the Fifth District self-nominate to the County of Ventura Climate Emergency Council,” said Fifth District Supervisor John Zaragoza. “It is so important to have representation from the unincorporated areas to voice and give input on climate change. We have to face climate change, and the time is now. This council will help give input from all areas in our communities across the county.”
Residents from the communities of El Rio-Del Norte, Nyland Acres, Piru and Saticoy who are interested in applying should have an understanding of their communities’ needs as well as an interest in and knowledge of climate action planning. Those members who will serve at large should demonstrate a special interest, competence, experience, or knowledge in climate action planning.
