Environmental Vision Update
While the Board of Supervisors' 20-Year Environmental Vision is not an action plan, this vision is important because it helps to guide our environmental sustainability initiatives and programs.
Tell us your vision for the environment.
The Board of Supervisors adopted its vision in June 2004, and it was last updated in March 2007. The current vision is organized into six major core service areas: growth and land use, air quality and transportation, water quality, solid waste, parks/trails/open space, and environmental stewardship
