The County of Sonoma encourages residents to participate in workshops that will gather public input to shape the Recovery and Resiliency Plan to ensure the safety, livelihoods, and economic prosperity of the residents of Sonoma County.
“Sonoma County will recover from these devastating fires, but we cannot do it alone,” said Board of Supervisors Chair James Gore. “We invite community members from every corner of the County to come to the table and share your ideas about what actions will help lead to a successful recovery and resilient future.”
Workshops will include facilitated small group discussion sessions where residents will be encouraged to share their ideas and vision for each of the five strategy areas, including Community Preparedness and Infrastructure, Housing, Economy, Natural Resources, and Safety Net Services. The input collected at the workshops will be published and available for individuals, organizations, and municipalities to use in additional recovery planning.
All meetings will be from 6:00pm – 8:00pm. Details below:
