Veterans Advisory Committee Endorses the New Policy
Next advisory meeting: November 6 at 2 P.M. in Sonoma
The Veterans Advisory
Committee held their quarterly meeting on Tuesday, August 14 at the Santa Rosa
building. All members of the Committee were present as well as many members of
the veterans’ community. Attendees asked questions and expressed their support
or concerns about the proposed building policy. County staff provided
clarifications and explanations to address concerns. After considering public
comments, the Committee requested a few minor adjustments that the County
agreed to include in the final version of the proposal.
Voting members of the Committee voted unanimously to recommend the proposed building use policy with the adjustments to the Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors is scheduled to consider the proposed policy when they meet on Tuesday, September 18th.

Future Building Improvements
We have received several
questions during the last couple of meetings regarding the County's process for
making and funding improvements to the Veterans Memorial Buildings. We want to
assure everyone that our team is committed to the preservation of these
important buildings and to advocating for improvements. During the next
meeting, we will provide an overview of how the County prioritizes and funds
building maintenance projects county-wide. If you have specific questions you
would like us to address, please email your questions to
Jeremy.Scannell@sonoma-county.org before the next meeting.
