Sustainable Sonoma is a forum where a diverse group of Sonoma Valley leaders representing businesses, environment, social justice, nonprofits, and government take action on solutions to our community’s biggest challenges.
Sustainable Sonoma is currently focused on the issue of housing affordability, bringing the Sonoma Valley community’s different sectors to increase, improve and preserve housing that is affordable, for people who live or work in the Valley, within already developed areas, to create diverse safe, complete neighborhoods.
During the next 6-9 month period, we will produce a specific, actionable, written housing strategy for Sonoma Valley built on the values expressed by the community in listening sessions and by the Sustainable Sonoma Council. By early 2020, the Sustainable Sonoma Council will review, revise, and approve the expert-informed strategy, decide which recommended strategies to take the lead on implementing and which strategies to promote for other actors to take up, and consider taking on a new topic, beyond housing.
Our mission is to make positive change in Sonoma Valley by aligning the interest groups in the community towards shared goals and measurable targets, and supporting efforts that achieve those goals. This common agenda will align our activities and accelerate success in achieving a just, thriving, sustainable community.
Sonoma Valley is a thriving, just, sustainable community, a model for Sonoma County, the state, and the nation.
