Equity Through Connectivity: A partnership to dedicate Red Bluff
A community-facilitated conversation (with Ali Ronder) to discuss HOW we can all work together to do the very important work of protecting green space AND providing affordable housing. There is no reason why this must be an EITHER/OR proposition.
There is no reason why Council and the Community cannot work together to this end. We need not be at odds. It is important to use this time to ensure the “tone” of communication is collaborative and action-oriented between City and the Community. Both Council Members Renteria and Harper-Madison have demonstrated prior and current support on preserving Red Bluff.Brought to you by Save Red Bluff Wildlife Nature Preserve and the Austin Sierra Club.
