Tiburon will look at adding equity, diversity section to town’s 20-year growth blueprint
Tiburon is considering whether to formally add diversity goals and priorities to its 20-year plan for townwide growth and development.
The Town Council at its Sept. 1 meeting discussed whether to include a diversity element in the town’s general plan, which is currently undergoing a multiyear update with a draft expected for review in March 2022. The council has asked the town’s Diversity Inclusion Task Force, which first suggested including diversity as an element of the plan, to study the issue and lay out some options.
Community Development Director Dina Tasini noted a “large number” of jurisdictions have a strategic plan to look at diversity, equity and inclusion, but the city of San Rafael had included an equity, diversity and inclusion element in its recently updated general plan.
San Rafael’s 30-page diversity element sets 47 policy goals for equity and inclusion in six categories, including public participation, healthy communities and environmental justice, housing stability, delivery of government services, access to education and economic opportunity and being an age-friendly community.
