Rebuilding Together

The County of Sonoma has set up a hotline for unincorporated Sonoma County homeowners who have lost their homes in the Sonoma County Complex Fires. As recovery efforts are underway, we will continue to provide resources for rebuilding, including the latest information for permits and property tax assessments. Our goal is to institute a streamlined and expedited approach so our community can recover and rebuild as quickly as possible. This video provides a quick overview of the four phases of rebuilding and videos for each of the phases are soon to follow.
