Review a draft study

On May 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the Mission San Miguel Parish Hall (behind the Mission) there will be a workshop to review the public draft of the Camp Roberts Joint Land Use Study, which is now available for comment. The project addresses the impacts that training activities at Camp Roberts could have on surrounding neighborhoods. San Luis Obispo and Monterey counties, along with several agencies, are working together with the military. To review the draft, go to Public comment ends on Friday, May 31.
