Sonoma County Board of Supervisors Approve Temporary Measures For Those Affected By Recent Wildfires

The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors have approved new measures for those affected by the Walbridge and Myers fires. Measures passed include allowing the temporary use of RVs on residential property, residential accessory structures such as farmworker housing to be used for temporary housing, and the banning of new vacation rentals within the burn zone. Supervisors also waived permitting fees for granny units and streamlined the design-review process for those looking to rebuild. Overall, 298 structures were destroyed between the Walbridge and Myers fires: 158 of them were homes.
