BACKGROUND:

The San Mateo County Resource Conservation District (the District) wishes to better communicate that it is a distinct entity from San Mateo County in order to reduce confusion among constituents, partners, funders and others, and for decades has been recognized as the San Mateo Resource Conservation District in its statewide network of 95 resource conservation districts.  California Public Resources Code Sections 9621-9627 provide a process for any resource conservation district seeking to change its name. 

 

DISCUSSION:

Pursuant to the above referenced sections of the Public Resource Code, the District’s board of directors passed Resolution 2017-5 on December 21, 2017 (attached) authorizing the name change and has requested that your Board now approve the name change from “San Mateo County Resource Conservation District” to “San Mateo Resource Conservation District.” 

 

County Counsel has reviewed and approved the resolution as to form. 

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

There is no County fiscal impact associated with this action.
