1. Census 2020 Outreach Agreement

Preview

Shortly after convening at 9 a.m., the Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency to adopt resolution to opt-in to an outreach agreement with the California Complete Count Census 2020 to conduct outreach and assistance for the 2020 decennial census. The U.S. Constitution mandates a count of every person regardless of age, race, ethnicity and citizenship every 10 years. Marin County has been allocated $100,000 to fund outreach activities to promote participation in the census. The County plans to create a Complete Count Committee that will spearhead community resources to increase awareness. Staff recommends that the Board approve budget adjustments as well.

Review

The Board adopted the resolution.

3. Workshop on 5G Technology

Preview

No earlier than 5:30 p.m., the Board will conduct an informational workshop by the Community Development Agency (CDA) on small wireless (5G) telecommunications. Fifth-generation cellular wireless technology – commonly called 5G – is on the cusp of implementation in many areas of the developed world, and Marin County is trying to learn as much as it can before it takes place here. CDA oversees the Marin County Telecommunications Facilities Policy Plan, which regulates telecommunications equipment sites and mitigates visual impacts of cell transmitters throughout the county. Through that plan, CDA would oversee local implementation of new equipment designed to deliver 5G service. Staff recommends that the Board provide direction regarding the development of amendments to the County's telecommunications regulations for consideration at a future public meeting.

Review

The Board heard public testimony and provided direction to staff.
