Board of Supervisors Ad Hoc Subcommittee

Regarding Santa Ynez Valley Band of Chumash Indian Matters

The Board of Supervisors Ad Hoc Subcommittee on Santa Ynez Valley Band of Chumash Indians Matters was created for the purposes of engaging in discussions between the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors and members of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians regarding land use issues, as well as financial matters of mutual concern, that include but are not limited to sovereign immunity and Santa Ynez Valley properties of interest (Camp 4 Mooney and Escobar and the 350 acre "Triangle Property"). Other related topics will be discussed as appropriate. The Board of Supervisors Ad Hoc subcommittee meetings with the Tribe will be conducted pursuant to the Brown Act and open to the public.

The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors has an adopted legislative platform policy position which recognizes the role and unique interests of tribes, states, counties and other local governments to protect all members of their communities and provide governmental services and infrastructure beneficial to all. Further the County of Santa Barbara recognizes the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians and the tribal right to self-governance as well as the need to provide for tribal members and preserve traditional tribal culture and heritage. Similarly, the County recognizes its own self-governance and responsibility to provide for the general health, safety, and welfare of all residents of its communities. This policy is consistent with the legislative position on tribal affairs adopted by both the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) and the National Association of Counties (NACo).
