Our Next Meeting – Tuesday, March 12

TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2024, 7:00 PM



Dear members and supporters—

We are going to take a deep dive in our March meeting into a local issue that is making national news – California Forever.  There has been a lot of commentary about California Forever’s plans and ballot initiative. Here is your chance to see and hear for yourself what all the commotion is about, directly from some of those most involved.

In order of appearance from left to right, our speakers from Solano Together will be Bob Berman, Chair of the Solano County Orderly Growth Committee, and Sadie Wilson, Director of Planning and Research at Greenbelt Alliance.

Our speaker from California Forever is Head of Planning Gabe Metcalf (read a recent interview with Metcalf here). Chris Rico, CEO/President of the Solano County Economic Development Corporation, will also be on hand to answer questions and provide economic insights.

This will be a rare opportunity to learn about this controversial proposal and the initiative that will be on the November ballot supporting it from all sides at once. 

Sheri Leigh will also share an announcement about Fiestas Primavera and other activities to stop the La Migra game that has become an unwelcome Benicia High School tradition.
