About the Study
The Governance Study seeks to improve government services in the Lower Russian River region. The Study will finish up in January 2024 and result in recommendations for improving local, "city-level" services throughout the Lower Russian River region. Recommendations will be based on an analysis of funding and governance strategies matched with community input on service gaps and needs.
Through public workshops, stakeholder meetings, and online tools, the community will be asked to identify unmet needs, gaps in existing services, and potential new services. The community will have a chance to review current revenue spending and governance tools to understand such questions as "where are TOT* revenues spent?"
The Office of Supervisor Lynda Hopkins (District 5) is managing the Study with technical and outreach support from Blue Sky Consulting Group based in Oakland, California.
