Diablo Canyon Power Plant Closure Planning

The County is working with community stakeholders, local cities, school districts, Chambers of Commerce, and PG&E to look at options that would reduce the economic impacts our community will face due to the closure of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant. Together, the stakeholders will guide a project that will develop an economic strategy intended to help reduce the impact of the closure throughout our region. They will hire a consultant for an economic analysis and the development of long-term economic strategies.

Every ten years, supervisorial districts must be redrawn so that each district is substantially equal in population. This process, called redistricting, is important in ensuring that each Board of Supervisors member represents about the same number of constituents. Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which is usually released around March 31 of the year after the Census is conducted, but is expected to be delayed until September of 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For the County of San Luis Obispo, the redistricting process must be completed by December 15, 2021.
