At our 2022 Board Workshop planning meeting, we agreed to bring forth the following additional statement to our vision and mission, in recognition of the importance of social and racial justice goals. Supervisor Bullock and I worked with representatives from the Grass Valley and Nevada City Councils, and the Town of Truckee, to come up with this joint statement and, as of this newsletter, Nevada City and Truckee have adopted it. We expect to adopt it as part of our board’s updated vision and mission statement in February. I am proud of this first step being taken by our county.
Equity and Inclusion – We strive to be a community where all residents thrive, visitors feel welcome and we care for one another despite our differences. There is equal and fair access to resources, opportunities are abundant, and everyone does their part to embrace collective responsibility and take actions that uphold racial and social equity.
