This should be a very informative session.
Personally glad the time was adjusted slightly earlier, I’m going to bed pretty early these days.
One lands agency I can’t help but miss is the SFPUC,(san francisco Public Utilities Commission) which I believe is the governing body that oversee’s the watershed lands that border every one of our communities to the East.
Question, did the SFPUC decline to attend?
Or, will a rep from SFPUC be attending?
Thanx Sabrina for spearheading this event.

Rock On! (pun intended)
