Housing Our Community Town Hall Series – EXPLORE, Community Workshop
6:00pm - 9:00pm Vintage House
264 1st St E, Sonoma, CA 95476
Increasing housing prices, changing household needs and constrained housing supply are challenges facing the City of Sonoma (City) along with other Bay Area and surrounding Sonoma County communities. Based on increasing concern over this dilemma, the City Council contracted with Healdsburg based UrbanGreen, Inc to develop a community education and engagement program to create a robust and informed conversation on housing in the City of Sonoma.
The series is composed of three Town Halls around a theme of Learn | Discuss | Explore. The third and final meeting of the series, “EXPLORE, Community Workshop” will be held on June 20, 2019. This extended evening will focus on an interactive community workshop to discuss what kinds of housing we need and where within City limits. Using a scenario and gameboard format, attendees will break into round tables and apply what they have learned in the prior two Town Halls, in search of practical solutions for our future. The roundtable discussions, and what everyone learns will be followed by a community “priorities setting” exercise to begin framing potential actions we can take in addressing our challenge.
All Town Halls begin at 6:00 PM and will take place in Stone Hall at the Vintage House Senior Center located at 264 First Street East in Sonoma.
Light refreshments and childcare for school-age children will be provided so everyone can participate. The Town Halls will be recorded by Sonoma Valley Community Television and made available on the City’s web site and via Channel 27 for viewing after the events. Reservations, though not required, are much appreciated and can be made at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/housing-our-community-town-hall-series-explore-tickets-60315819239
