How were property owners engaged about the EIFD prior to creation?

Prior to the formation of the Samoa Peninsula EIFD the California Center for Rural Policy (CCRP) conducted interviews and surveys on the Peninsula as to better understand the needs and wants of the public. Through this effort, CCRP learned that public was concerned about infrastructure deficiencies, and specified the need for a program which focused on the following;

  • Infrastructure which encourages investment, such as advanced permitting and the placement of easements.
  • Water infrastructure upgrades
  • Green energy opportunities and climate change mitigation strategies
  • Green energy projects which align with local and state goals for energy resiliency, innovation, and independence
  • Community and recreational infrastructure
