‘One-Stop’ Permitting Program Aims to Achieve Natural Resources Coordination

The Agriculture Department’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Cachuma Resource Conservation District and Sustainable Conservation are sponsoring an innovative permit coordination program to assist landowners, nonprofit organizations and regulatory agencies improve the natural resource conditions on farms and ranches throughout Santa Barbara County. This voluntary program will offer “one-stop permitting” to motivated landowners and organizations who agree to follow the conditions established for the program.

A meeting to discuss the program will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Santa Barbara County Employees’ University Center, 267 Camino del Remedio, next to the county agricultural commissioner’s office. Anyone interested in improving natural resources in Santa Barbara County is encouraged to attend.

For more information, contact Tom Lockhart of the Cachuma RCD at 805.928.9269 x110 or Trudy Ingram of Sustainable Conservation at 805.798.2503.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
