Sonoma County’s General Plan Update Meeting

REMINDER: Hold AUGUST 1st for next General Plan meeting!

Hello all-

Just a quick reminder that we have a big, important strategy meeting coming up on the General Plan on Wednesday August 1st from 6:00-9:00pm. Location in downtown Santa Rosa, TBA. Please make every effort to attend, as we need your support and engagement in this process as the General Plan goes before the Board of Supervisors from August 20-September 20.

This will be the chance for our group to get back together to discuss the imminent hearings at the Board of Supervisors, and what has happened at the Planning Commission hearings.


6:00-7:00: Bob Gaiser and Greg Carr (possibly Scott Briggs and Jennifer Barrett) will be in attendance to speak to us about:

– The current state of the Draft General Plan

– Changes that were made at the Planning Commission

– The process of hearings at the Board

– and answer any questions

7:00-8:00: we will re-group to focus on specific areas on interest in the General Plan, and to present important policies that we must see included in the General Plan for the future of Sonoma County.

8:00-9:00: we will discuss strategy for grassroots turn-out, media awareness, and lobbying on these important issues.

Board of Supervisors hearings start on August 20th, so we haven’t much time! Please make sure to attend this meeting! Please RSVP to let me know if you will attend.

Let me know if you have any questions,

Daisy Pistey-Lyhne
