Policing meeting set
The Pleasanton City Council is scheduled to host its next online community meeting on policing in Pleasanton next week.
Part of a series of city meetings on social justice reform and community policing in response to civil unrest after the George Floyd killing, the council session is set to focus on a revised implementation plan for key strategies from the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing -- first created by former President Barack Obama in 2014.
The meeting is set to take place over Zoom next Thursday (Oct. 1) starting at 6:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.cityofpleasantonca.gov.
The five candidates for Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District Board of Education are set to participate in a live, in-person forum on Tuesday evening, hosted by the Parent Club Information Council.
With two seats on the Nov. 3 ballot, the candidates are incumbent Trustee Chuck Rogge and challengers Yanira Guzmán, Kandiss Hewing, Asa Strout and Kristie Wang. At least one LVJUSD seat is guaranteed to change hands since Trustee Chris Wenzel is not running.
The forum, scheduled for 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday in the LVJUSD board room at 685 E. Jack London Blvd., will be open to the public and held in-person with COVID-19 protocols in place such as a health screening, face mask requirement and social distancing, organizers said.
Pleasanton officials are in the process of updating the city's Climate Action Plan (CAP) from 2012, and they are looking for public input through an online survey on community visions and priorities to include in CAP 2.0.
"The CAP 2.0 will continue to focus on local actions to increase community resiliency, respond to the impacts of climate change, and meet current statewide GHG emission reduction targets established in California," officials said.
The survey, with a deadline of Oct. 16, is available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/PleasantonCAP.
