Sonoma County Supervisors will consider approving a comprehensive fire recovery and resiliency plan today. The plan offers more than 200 proposed actions, ranging from community preparedness, infrastructure, housing, economy, safety net services and natural resources. It will set goals for the next 5 to 10 years. Compiled by the Office of Recovery and Resiliency, the plan was created with the help of public input and assistance from community block captains. Immediate concerns include a better alert system and mapping out evacuation routes. Funding has not yet been identified for execution of the plan.
