The California County Planning Commissioners Association will hold their 72nd Annual Conference at the Ontario Hilton November 14-17, 2002.
The theme of the conference is The Challenges of Urbanization.
"For too long there is has been contention between the people who want to develop and those who dont want them to develop. As the contention becomes more pronounced and urban sprawl worsens the contention worsens. Gridlock takes over our roads and our quality of life is affected. We need "Smart Growth." Our conference will deal with the solutions to some of our pressing problems. We will look at how San Bernardino County has increased our economic base with the re-use of Brownfields as seen in the successes of the California Speedway and the Ontario Mills," said Cheryl Brown, President of CCPCA and Publisher of Black Voice News.
The transitioning Chino Dairy Preserve will be discussed by Chuck Coe, Chino Planning Department and Scott Murphy of Ontario Planning Department. Leading the panel on Brownfields Transitions will be Charles McPhee of Catellus Development and Craig Hatch of the California Speedway.
Dr. Jim Muvihill, Professor of Urban Planning at California State University San Bernardino, will set the tone and put the issue in perspective by giving an overall look at the Impacts of Urbanization.
Assemblyman John Longville will be the keynote speaker at the awards banquet where the Commissioner and County of the Year will be announced.
"The County of San Bernardino is pleased to bring this prestigious group to the area. They are charged with the responsibility of recommending projects to Boards of Supervisors that chart the future of our state, we welcome them," said Keith Lee, Associate County Officer.
