On March 19, 2020, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-33-20 to all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence except as needed to maintain continuity of operations. The Governor also issued executive orders authorizing telephonic public meetings.

As a result, the San Diego River Conservancy (Conservancy) has made several changes to future meetings to protect the public. Per the Governor’s executive order to stay home, and in person participation at the Governing Board meeting is not allowed at this time. Board Members, Conservancy staff and the public can participate in the meeting via teleconference. As always, we welcome participation from the public.

In Person Meeting Participation Prohibited

Due to Executive Order N 33-20, the State of California has instructed individuals to stay home, in-person participation at San Diego River Conservancy’s Board meetings will not be allowed at this time.
