Riverside County is asking residents of unincorporated communities to identify the services and programs they most need.
The Unincorporated Communities Initiative will rank projects and services for future budget cycles, beginning with the 2021-2022 fiscal year budget that starts July 1, according to a statement on the county’s website.
It will remain online until March 31 and is available in Spanish.
“Some of our most underserved communities are those areas that fall within the jurisdiction of the county for their most basic of services,” said Supervisor Kevin Jeffries in the statement. “We have an opportunity to make changes that can greatly impact the daily lives of our residents. It’s our duty to hear from them about what the greatest needs truly are and prioritize those projects for funding.”
An unincorporated area is not considered part of a city’s jurisdiction and so is governed by the county.
