North Sonoma Mountain - Project Detail

Community Workshop #1

The April 2017 workshop presented an overview of the scope of the project and the master planning process. Over 60 stakeholders and members of the public attended and were engaged in the workshop. A lively question and answer forum led to smaller breakout groups where participants were encouraged to share their ideas and concerns on maps and comment cards.
