California Forever – Solano Together Zoom Forum Recording

Meeting Recording

Below is a link to the video recording of the Progressive Democrats of Benicia’s meeting last Tuesday with California Forever and Solano Together.  The meeting was great with an interchange of ideas between both sides.

Our speakers were Gabriel Metcalf, Head of Planning for California Forever, Chris Rico, Solano County Economic Development President/CEO, Sadie Wilson, Solano Together/Director of Planning and Research for Greenbelt Alliance, and Bob Berman, Solano Together/Chair of Solano County Orderly Growth Committee.

The participants presented the problems that California Together may address and may create.  Christopher Cabaldon, who is running for State Senate in this district and was an audience member that night, also provided information about the problems of having an initiative also be a development agreement and how in his opinion that is not possible.

This is a timely topic since there was a signature gatherer yesterday at Safeway to get signatures for California Forever to change our current law prohibiting growth out of city boundaries, and that outlines their proposals to move forward. Please feel free to share this link widely.
