  • Goldstein reached out to the general public at Chico events such as Thursday Night Market; the homeowner workshops co-sponsored by North Valley Energy Watch and the Butte Environmental Council, nonprofits that put together tool-and-testing kits available through the Chico library; and meetings with business leaders.
  • Molly Marcussen, a recent graduate of Chico State, began her CivicSpark fellowship this week, transitioning into City Hall as Goldstein transitions out.

  • Natalie Carter, executive director of the Butte Environmental Council, also sees benefit from deliberation. Noting that the BRCP’s 50-year term exceeds the general plans of both Butte County and Chico, she says, “it’s smart to be cautious about these kinds of things—thoughtful and evaluative.”
  • On the BRCP overall, Carter said, “the concept and the core of it is a really strong thing, and wonderful. It’s a remarkable effort that should be appreciated by our community.”

    Stemen said the board values the connections Carter has made in the community and local government, particularly during the farmers' market's fight to retain its Saturday morning location at the city-owned parking lot at Second and Wall streets. While she may not have expertise on every issue or contacts in every jurisdiction BEC works, board members do-and the board doesn't expect Carter to chart BEC's course alone.

    "We're right where we want to be as an organization," Stemen said. "We want to do what we're doing better, and we want to do what we're doing more, but I don't think we really need to change anything-and I think Natalie fits right into that."

    "I was excessively fortunate that I got my first two weeks [overlapping] with Robyn," Carter said. "That was the perfect introduction to this."
