Share your input for the Sonoma County Active Transportation Plan

We are excited to announce that the Sonoma County Active Transportation Plan Survey is up and running, and they are seeking your input! SCTA is partnering with Cloverdale, Cotati, Healdsburg, Rohnert Park, Sebastopol, Sonoma, and Unincorporated Sonoma County to create a community-informed Active Transportation Plan.  Your feedback is crucial to ensure that this plan reflects the needs and preferences of Sonoma County.

How You Can Help:

  1. Take the Survey and/or put pins on an interactive map to share safety issues or improvement ideas:
  2. Share with Others: We encourage you to share this  with community organizations, friends, family, neighbors, and anyone else who may have an interest in shaping the future of active transportation in Sonoma County. The more voices we hear, the better our plan will be.

Your participation will contribute to a safer and more inviting walking, biking, and rolling experience in Sonoma County!

Take Action to End Fossil Fuels

As part of a national effort to amplify the march in New York, there will be a supporting event on September 17th in Sacramento, aimed at getting Governor Newsom to do the right thing on climate. 

We call on all Californians to gather at the state Capitol to demand that our leaders, Biden and Newsom, stop permitting fossil fuels and make a plan to phase out oil and gas. This family-friendly action will feature a giant puppet show, carnival games, performers and speakers who will share how you can get involved in ending the era of Fossil Fuels and building a better future together. Contact the organizers to help bring this event to life!

Farm Bill

This year, Congress will write our next farm bill, shaping the next 5-7 years of American agriculture policy.

Governing everything from the way our food is produced, to how it is distributed and consumed, the farm bill determines the entirety of our food and ag system, but currently it supports industrial agriculture practices that prioritize commodities over communities. We think it’s time for a change. Soil is our common ground and our common good, so we are calling on Congress to support regenerative agriculture in the farm bill.

Regenerative agriculture combines Indigenous knowledge, holistic management, and cutting edge science to work within the context of natural systems. It means healthier soils growing healthier foods, stronger local communities, more profitable regional economies, and more resilient environments.If you believe in a healthy, abundant future – for yourself, your family, and your community – join 350 group members and sign and share the petition to regenerate America!

There are no upcoming events at this time.
