Objective: Through public-private partnerships, Sonoma County businesses and residents emerge from the October 2017 fires with an increased capacity to address persistent local challenges and resilience to face future disruptors.
The Sonoma County Economic Recovery Plan provides a framework to support businesses and residents as they rebound from the fires and recover to a position of even greater long-term strength and resiliency. Sonoma County will continue to face challenges created by the fires for years to come, and organizations focused on recovery cannot take their feet off the gas pedal – this requires a consistent, sustained effort. The short-term (6-12 month) actions described in the Economic Recovery Plan provide a foundation for Strategic Sonoma. This Action Plan recommends continuing these projects and reinforcing their impact through the other goals focused on housing, business diversification, education, and mobility.
