One Grass Valley City Council member is not happy with how information about a project concept is being handled in the media- television, radio, and social media. A project concept that is in the process of going through the initial stages of exploration received feedback from the Developmental Review Committee Tuesday morning. However, when the agenda for the DRC meeting was posted on Friday, social media took the lead in sharing the project as a done deal. Prior to the close of Tuesday night’s Grass Valley City Council meeting, council member Lisa Swarthout responded to the media’s interpretation of the 210,000 plus square foot shopping center project.
Immediately following the meeting, Swarthout elaborated on her statement.
Swarthout says that social media and traditional media are responsible for the viral spread of misinformation.
The council member urges the public to contact them directly or any staff member if they have questions about the status of any proposed development project or other city business.
All council and staff member contact information is available on the city’s website: http://www.cityofgrassvalley.com/
