The County of Kern is in the process of updating its General Plan, and this is our chance to help create a healthy Kern County. The plan determines how a county will grow and how land will be used. It’s an opportunity for residents to share ideas about how we can improve our communities and ensure that rural communities are included in the plan.
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. Please join our Environment Action Team and help ensure that the plan includes investment in parks, affordable housing and addresses infrastructure needs.
