Background: Lane County has allocated $55 million of its direct allocation and $13 million State allocation of the American Rescue Plan Act’s Local Fiscal Recovery Funds. This will fund projects that address housing and homelessness, public health, public safety, fiscal stability, and COVID-19 response. Additionally, $4 million is set aside to respond to unforeseen emergencies, unanticipated uses, or other uncertainties that may arise due to the ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic. There is still $15 million to be allocated.
Suggestions for survey topics: more EV charging facilities, preserve old & mature trees on county land, ban new fossil fuel infrastructure, implement green procurement policies, follow through on strategic planning with local utilities to address the need for renewable energy sources, in light of future extreme low snowpack for hydro energy sources, support active transportation (bike & ped) and transit, oppose more roads for cars, and continue to engage & provide regular updates to the community.
