Program Planning.
Once a year, each local League holds one or more meetings for members to help focus on the priorities for the coming year. In our case, we have two such meetings.

In this first one, we will discuss the LWV "program planning" process and collect/discuss nominations for various LWVCS actions, events, ... that we could do this year.

The next meeting will discuss/prioritize the actions/event nominations from the first meeting.

This page on the St. Jude website has a map that shows the location of the classrooms (#1-#6)

Saturday, February 3, 2018
9am-3pm
Laney College
900 Fallon St.
Oakland, CA 94607
Bay Area League Day.
The nominal topic is Bay Area Regional Governance- Winds of Change.

The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) are merging and there are many options for a combined organization being considered. The current agencies focus primarily on housing, transportation and social equity.

Questions are being asked such as: how much authority should the regional agency have on local land use decisions; should the regional decision makers be appointed by other elected officials (as it is now) or be directly elected; and how might this new regional agency relate to other governing bodies?

Campers and RVs in Mountain View.
An increasing population of vehicle dwellers is making the streets of Mountain View their home. This educational forum will explore who is living in these vehicles, why and what impact this is having on city services and our neighborhoods. Our speakers will discuss the challenges our city faces and how we can balance the needs of this struggling population with the concerns of our residents.

Speakers:

  • Kimberly Thomas, Assistant to the City Manager
  • Sgt. Wahed McGee, Mountain View Police Dept.
  • Tom Myers, Exec. Director, Community Services Agency (CSA)

Open to the public, but space is limited. If you plan to attend, please register at:
