KICKOFF MEETING

Are you concerned about the sprawl you see overtaking Sonoma County's rural environment? Given today's pressure to grow, are you afraid that Sonoma County may turn into "San Jose North"? If you answered "Yes" to either of these questions, now you have an opportunity to do something about it. Join our campaign to "push the pause button on sprawl" and preserve the rural beauty of 80% of the land in Sonoma County.

Greenbelt Alliance, the Sierra Club, Sonoma County Conservation Action, and a network of concerned citizens are working now to place the RURAL HERITAGE INITIATIVE on the November ballot. We welcome you to join our action-oriented and fun-loving group of people, who are working to preserve the quality of life in Sonoma County.
