CSET holds hearing on how to help public
visalia – A little bit of constructive criticism can go a long way toward getting better. Too often organizations miss the fact that landscapes have changed and needs have changed with them. And as a result their services are no longer needed or helpful. But in order to avoid that the Community Services Employment Training (CSET) Board of Directors is inviting Tulare County residents to attend a public hearing to share their input on important community needs, issues and goals. The hearing will be held tomorrow, Thursday, June 15 at 6 p.m. at CSET’s main office in Visalia located at 312 NW. 3rd Avenue.
In all, CSET is requesting assistance from the public to identify gaps in services and seeks to implement strategies that support the economic advancement and security of local residents. To do this, CSET is conducting a countywide survey and public hearing every two years to gather feedback on current services available in Tulare County. The results of the survey and comments gathered from the public hearing formulate CSET’s Community Action Plan, a bi-annual detailed plan to deliver the programs and services communities are in need of most.
“The Community Action Plan Public Hearing is an important part of gathering input from the community,” said Mary Alice Escarsega-Fechner, CSET Executive Director. “The hearing provides residents the opportunity to share their opinions, desires and concerns about significant issues and services available in their communities.”
During the survey process, CSET conducted seven community forums and reviewed more than 800 surveys from Tulare County residents. Survey results will be shared at the public hearing along with an analysis of resident needs and priorities.
