Citizen Action Committee Start-up Kit
This program will provide your newly formed Citizen Action Committee with the tools needed to:
1. Educate your public officials about California AB32 and SB375, which are the sustainable development laws being implemented statewide.
a. Provides a vehicle to notify your public officials;
b. Hold you and your public officials accountable – we all are responsible for knowing the law.
2. Provide your committee with the tools necessary to evaluate your city General Plan and General Plan elements. Included are examples of three city case studies that you can use to critique your city documents. Selected case studies are in Microsoft Word format, so you can easily edit them as desired. For example, there is a critique of a Housing Element – part of the General Plan – for the city of Seal Beach. The Word file has a cover page and an appendix with research specific to California. All you need to do is:
a. Fill in the body specific to your city critique, and rename the title page.
b. Footnote the included research to your specific document and kudos, you are done!
Once you have completed your critique, deliver it to your elected officials denoting your demands and desires to have sustainable development removed.
