2017 Board of Supervisors
On January 31, 2017, the Board of Supervisors held its annual Strategic Planning Study Session with senior staff from all County departments and agencies to discuss, both individually and collectively, the County’s strategic priorities. During the Session, four broad categories were identified: resource conservation through a holistic Healthy Watersheds approach; investing and incentivizing Housing for All in our community; Rebuilding our Infrastructure through investments in road, facilities, and neighborhood resources; and Securing our Safety Net by focusing on the most vulnerable individuals In Sonoma County.
Through a collaborative, department-wide effort, the strategic areas were further developed to support these multi-year priorities. Links to the priority papers below provide details of each initiative area. Updates on the County’s progress toward achieving the goals of each priority area will be provided at Board of Supervisors meetings and as noted below.
We are advancing resource conservation efforts throughout the County by establishing a framework for coordination of existing initiatives and leveraging resources to produce new efforts.
Housing for All
We envision a Sonoma County where people at all income levels have choices and the housing market is in balance: Where rents and home prices rise at the same pace as wages, and the vacancy rate for rentals is steady at 5%. Learn More
Rebuilding Our Infrastructure
We are improving County infrastructure and supporting communities for a resilient, sustainable future.
Securing Our Safety Net
We are closing the gaps in the Safety Net to support our highest need residents to achieve self-sufficiency, recovery and well-being.
