Next Steps

Although we lost a close vote by the Board of Supervisors on June 24, 2014, we continue to take steps to remove or curtail a large-scale printing factory in our coastal hills. The legal challenge is on! You can still send a letter or email to newspaper editors expressing your support!

Meanwhile we continue to serve the residents of our Coastal Hills by providing information on important issues, like the preliminary draft of the Local Coastal Plan Update. Note: these same addresses can be used to comment on the Sonoma County Local Coastal Plan.
