Sonoma Valley Citizens Advisory Commission
The Sonoma Valley Citizen’s Advisory Commission (SVCAC) was created through a Joint Powers Agreement between the County of Sonoma and the City of Sonoma. Its purpose is to provide a public forum to deliberate planning decisions impacting both the City of Sonoma and the unincorporated areas of the Sonoma Valley.
The SVCAC makes advisory recommendations to other Land Use bodies, including the Planning Commission and Board of Zoning Adjustments. It also provides a regular forum for citizen participation in the formation of public policy, to consider issues concerning the Sonoma Valley, evaluate solutions of these issues, advise elected officials and other decision makers, and form a bridge for communication between the various governmental agencies and the general public.
The SVCAC meets 4th Wednesdays at 6:30pm at City of Sonoma Council Chambers:
