People who live and work in Sonoma Valley will have a chance to “voice their hopes and fears for our community’s future,” according to an invitation to a “Listening Session” on Sept. 19 at Vintage House Senior Center, presented by Sustainable Sonoma.
Sustainable Sonoma is composed of more than 25 community leaders representing local nonprofits, business groups and government agencies, positioned to apply cross-sector solutions to complex issues. Though the council was formed in September of 2017, it held its first meeting in the weeks after the October fires. Since that time it has gathered community input at over a dozen local listening sessions and through the collection of almost 1,000 individual statements.
This will be one of Sustainable Sonoma’s last listening sessions, giving residents a final opportunity to weigh in on the biggest issues facing the Valley community, including housing, affordability, jobs, sustainable tourism, the future of our economy, open space and others.
Sustainable Sonoma’s mission is to create positive change in Sonoma Valley through the action of community leaders spanning economic, environmental and social justice interests, across the government, business and nonprofit sectors. More information at sustainablesonoma.net.
The event will be held at Vintage House, 264 First St. E., from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 19, starting at 6 p.m. Comments also may be made at sustainablesonoma.net/this-is-my-vision.
