The County of Kern is in the process of updating its General Plan, which determines how a county will grow and how land will be used. This is a great opportunity for residents to ensure that their community is included in the plan and share ideas about how communities can be improved.
The County will be holding a community meeting October 13 at 7 p.m. at the Kern County Board of Supervisor Chambers, 1115 Truxtun Ave in Bakersfield. Building Healthy Communities-South Kern’s Environment Action Team urges community residents to join them in them in this important meeting in order to help ensure that the plan includes investment in parks, affordable housing and addresses infrastructure needs.
