Kick-off Summit: Focus on Our Future - Shared screen with speaker view
Is the input from the SB county annex of NE Cucamonga / study of the Etiwanda Preserve adjacent land being incorporated?
The City also has Spanish translation for sessions.
Yes, the Etiwanda Heights annexation process will be a consideration of this General Plan update.
Either during or after the Forum On Our Future, please take the second survey on the PlanRC website or at the following link: https://arcg.is/1LHPKq
it appears that we have about 20 participants, it appears a low number, was the notification of this week’s meetings on Nextdoor ?
so it seems that there should be more reaching out towards those in the community who aren’t white. I agree with the current caller & appreciate raising the concern about trying to make responses more representative
I was on the phone for most of the session. Did you actually identify the percentage of surveys received from people who identified as African American?
@Don Smith - Yes, I can send you the data.
The City has done exceptional work in the realm of health and specifically mental health. Given the significance of place on wellbeing. I am most enthused about health and equity aspects of the conversation.
Will the presentation materials from this session be available online?
Yes the presentation materials will be online, along with a recording of this session.
Thanks Erika. Is there some reason they aren't just saying what that percentage is?
Future survey on public safety and interaction with law enforcement
I’m interested in racial justice being part of Rancho Cucamonga’s values
@ Don Smith - They showed the figures on the screen.
Hi Don - We did go over it earlier in the presentation. The response rate from those identifying as Black or African American was 6%
PET transverses multiple cities and there are increased activity on the trail...possible item for discussion
Thank you Justine.
You are not clear, can you type your question in the chat Stephania?
This compares with 9% of our population that identifies as Black or African American from the 2010 census
just chiming in to say I agree! that’s all, really
No problem Don!
Teen Mental Health is an important component in the health category.
Sustainable mental health services for teens and adults would be a great fit for teens.
Natalie - Do you have any ideas for how we can engage our youth? We have our second survey out now and would love to have more participation from our youth and young adult population.
I think housing and public safety are very important with respect to equity.
The City has a Compassionate Communities Committee that is a great venue for dialogue and action on race, racism, and racial equity. We would love for more people to join us! We meet monthly. For additional information, please email HealthyRC@cityofrc.us.
By housing I specifically am thinking of home ownership.
Also teen homelessness is a very underrated topic that needs to be addressed in the city. Providing plans and programs for these teens. (Job opportunities, housing, etc)
I think the city and National Core have done a great job of building lots of affordable housing in Rancho Cucamonga. Maybe we could do more outreach with our neighbor cities to help them follow our example?
I am looking forward to hearing about the Housing for All and Mobility in the City
Justine- I believe using social media as a way to promote this survey as well as making the link accessible. Also sending this survey through Highschools to send to students will definitely get the word out.
Looking at response by region/neighborhoods is really critical. Looking at the results of the first survey, we could probably determine where the lion's share of responses came from (Wildfires #1 concern for example). We need to make sure the voices of all sectors of the community are being heard in this process.
How do we ensure that the survey responses are limited to those who reside in city limits?
Teens respond most to teens and many take pride in influencing the future. The Healthy RC teen group could distribute through their preferred social media platforms.
Being apart of Healthy RC youth leaders I was able to find out about this meeting today. The Healthy RC youth leaders are always willing to give feedback to make the city a abetter place for everyone but for the future as well.
I heard about it from the Healthy RC Youth Leaders program, which I and I know a few others in the meeting are a part of.
Does that mean we can celebrate teens who are participating right now?!
For anyone interested the youth leaders created projects these past months and recently shared them through zoom! https://vimeo.com/425221391 the link here shares just how the healthy rc youth leaders are using their voice!
Great idea to share the link to your hard work Natalie! We are so proud of our HRC Youth Leaders!
Will we be discussing water infrastructure in our sessions?
despite being a different agency, it must be consulted so both parties do not act in a bubble
We will be exploring the intersection of racial equity, public health, and planning at the health session tomorrow. Please join us at 9am!
I don’t see the way to login on the website. Where do participants access the discussion groups?
the links will be posted prior to each session
Great stuff! Thank you to everyone on the planning team.
Thank you for all your time and concern. I (and all the Healthy RC teens) really appreciate it!
sounds good! Thank you all
Thank you!! I appreciate it.
