Get Involved: Workshops/Surveys

Previous Outreach/Events

A survey/review of the draft regulations was available Oct. 8 - 28.  

On Oct. 7, 2020, the County hosted a virtual public meeting to discuss the draft regulations and next steps in the process. If you missed that meeting, you can view the recording here: https://youtu.be/2AvmbvK2s3c

In late 2019, small group stakeholder meetings were conducted and in January of 2020, two public workshops occurred.
