FAIRFIELD — Updates on the proposed Dependent Regional Park and Open Space District and regulatory options for industrial hemp go before the Solano County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.
Both matters are scheduled as part of an afternoon session that begins at 2 p.m., and follows a closed session during which the supervisors will be updated on property negotiations involving the Mason Street Park and Ride.
The board meets at 9 a.m. in the first floor chamber of the government center, 675 Texas St., in Fairfield.
The board will consider what the next steps will be to place the regional park district on the November ballot for voter approval, and to give direction to staff on public outreach and a community survey for a final board decision in May or June.
The item does not address whether there would be a separate funding measure, but by defining it as a dependent district, it would fall under the authority of the county board – at least to start – and would possibly be funded within the existing county parks budget.
Among the issues to be considered with regard to industrial hemp is the recent proposal by Supervisor Skip Thomson to form a task force to get public input, or perhaps other public outreach options.
Among other items on the agenda are an update on the Napa-Solano Area Agency on Aging, and consideration of a contract amendment with the California Department of Aging for $492,316.
The board also will hear a presentation on the Community Investment Fund; a presentation from the Probation Department on adult recidivism data; and a presentation on the Farmbudsman Program.
