In the wake of unprecedented fire catastrophes throughout Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Lake and Mendocino Counties, the North Bay Region faces both overwhelming challenges and historic opportunities. Much has been written about the challenges, and our hearts break for our neighbors, colleagues and friends who have lost so much in life, livelihood and property. We pledge our unwavering aid to help them rebuild their communities.
While no one wishes for disaster, the aftermath affords unique opportunities to rethink our communities and contemplate whether we have the ideas, drive and talent to create even better communities in the place we call home.
Sustainable North Bay is convening community leaders to serve as a catalyst for collaborative action in linking recovery and development efforts to sustainable social, environmental and economic prosperity.
