June’s Government Affairs Committee meeting had a change of scenery and was held with the coordination of the Riverside County Flood Control & Water Conservation District at their Facilities office. The membership and attending dignitaries were benefitted by a brief tour of the facility and many of its unique industrial innovations that could serve to benefit future building in our “green” and water-wise Southern California building environment. Lunch followed thanks to Flood Control and Orco Block stepping up to sponsor the luncheon.
Following the tour, in a standing room only presentation, members were given an in depth glance at challenges and opportunities facing the industry by Mr. Jason Uhley. Jason is the Chief of the Watershed Protection Division of the Riverside County Flood Control and Water Conservation District and is a registered civil engineer with over 15 years of experience in storm water management. As Chief of the Watershed Protection Division, Jason is responsible for managing the coordination of the Santa Ana, San Diego and Colorado River Region NPDES MS4 Permit Programs for Riverside County and its 25 municipal Co-Permittees among other duties.
Riverside County’s Flood Control & Water Conservation District has created a one stop shop for developers that need to know how they may be affected by various fees and regulations depending on the area they hope to develop and build on. We were also fortunate to receive an update from Patricia Romo, Riverside County Assistant Director of Transportation.
Please join the Riverside County Building Industry Association in thanking Riverside County Flood Control’s Government Affairs Director Darcy Kuenzi for coordination our tour and presentation, as well as our presenters. Another big thank you as well to Orco Block and Flood Control, for their generous sponsorship of our June meeting.
