Notice of Public Workshops – Local Coastal Plan Update

Permit and Resource Management Department Banner 750

Permit Sonoma invites you to attend and provide input at the upcoming public workshops on the Public Review Draft of the Sonoma County Local Coastal Plan.

The public outreach program for the Public Review Draft of the Local Coastal Plan has been revised following the Kincade Fire, evacuations, and extended power and gas outages. Public workshops on the Public Review Draft now extend into 2020.

The Draft was prepared based on public and agency input on the Preliminary Draft in 2015. The workshops will introduce the Public Review Draft, solicit input, and identify the process and future public input opportunities.

The Local Coastal Plan Update includes updated maps and focused policy in the following areas:

  • Public access
  • Water resources
  • Geologic hazards
  • Biological resources
  • Sea level rise
