Community Meeting – Nov. 15, 2021 7-8:30pm

“Rodeo Renewed” – Phillips 66 Proposed Biofuels Project

RIGHT TO KNOW

What are its health, safety, and environmental impacts? How do we make our voices heard?

Phillips 66 Chairman and CEO Greg Garland announced last year that the Rodeo Renewed project “is a great example of how Phillips 66 is making investments in the energy transition that will create long term value of our shareholders.
But what will the project mean for Rodeo and surrounding communities and for refinery workers? What are its potential health, safety, and environmental impacts? Hear presentations that will tease out the complicated reality behind Phillips 66’s ambitions to become the world’s largest producer of “renewable” diesel at its Rodeo refinery.

Special Rodeo Meeting – Tues. Jan. 26, 2021 / 6:30

The County is seeking input from residents! Now is the time to make a difference.

The County has identified Rodeo as a “disadvantaged community” under Senate Bill (SB) 1000, which requires the County to integrate environmental justice into its General Plan. This law is based on the understanding that Rodeo and other communities have experienced a combination of historic discrimination, negligence, and political and economic disempowerment. Often, this has resulted in a disproportionate burden of pollution and health impacts and disproportionate social and economic disadvantages in these communities. Through Envision Contra Costa 2040, the County is developing goals, policies, and actions to address these issues. The County is seeking input from residents of the affected communities to improve and refine the draft goals, policies, and actions. At this meeting, County representatives will present a brief overview of the Envision Contra Costa 2040 project, explain more about what environmental justice is and how it fits into the County’s planning documents, provide links and information on how you and your neighbors in Rodeo can participate in the conversation, and answer your questions and take initial feedback.

This meeting will be interactive and conducted using Zoom, an online video/audio conferencing platform. Meeting participants can join by computer, tablet, or phone.
Meeting: Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2021 / 6:30 p.m.

Rodeo Community Meeting #2:
Envision Contra Costa
Rodeo Senior Center
189 Parker Avenue, Rodeo, CA 94572
August 7, 2019
6:30 pm

Join Contra Costa County Envision CC 2040 to continue the conversation about the future of Rodeo! They held their first Rodeo community meeting as part of Envision Contra Costa 2040 last spring, and community members turned out to discuss opportunities and challenges in Rodeo. They listened, and prepared draft guiding principles to articulate the values, priorities, and aspirations for the future shared by community members at that first meeting. Please attend this next meeting to share your ideas for specific policies, actions, and strategies to include in the General Plan, Zoning Code, and Climate Action Plan.

Contra Costa County is updating the County’s General Plan, Zoning Code, and Climate Action Plan – an initiative called “Envision Contra Costa 2040.” The General Plan sets forth goals and policies related to all aspects of community growth, change, and preservation. It is often referred to as the “constitution” for local development. The General Plan establishes the foundation for all land use decisions (including zoning and permitted activities) and Board of Supervisors policy direction. At the meeting, they’ll present draft Guiding Principles that articulate the values, priorities, and aspirations for the future of Rodeo shared by community members at their first community meeting. You’ll have an opportunity to let them know if they’re on track and to share your ideas for specific policies, actions, and strategies to include in the General Plan, Zoning Code, and Climate Action Plan.
