  • Redwood City – The County is kicking off a countywide series of listening sessions to gather input on ways to address community needs in four priority areas.

    The series will be held in communities across the Peninsula where residents are encouraged to share their needs concerning children and families, housing and homelessness, emergency preparedness and mental health.

    The results of the listening sessions and an online survey will directly inform County leaders as they prioritize funding from the Measure K sales tax, which provides local funds for local needs.

    The first listening session in the series will be Wednesday, Aug. 9, in El Granada. View a listing of all upcoming sessions. (No advance registration is required.)

    Listening sessions are designed to create a welcoming environment for everyone to share their unique perspective.

    Live interpretation and small group discussions will occur in English, Spanish, Cantonese, and Mandarin at each session and additionally in Tagalog in Daly City and San Mateo.

    All sessions will be facilitated by InterEthnica, a team with expertise in engaging with diverse communities.
