Environmental Vision Update


Draft Environmental Vision Update Cover

We want your input on the initial draft update of the vision—please take this online survey through March 6 to offer feedback on this draft.

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 Vision

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

Public Input

We are currently seeking feedback on the intial draft of the updated vision. Please take this online survey through Monday, March 6 to offer your comments.

This draft incorporates public comments that we previously received when we asked people about what additions, changes or updates they wanted. We held three public meetings and conducted an online survey to get this feedback.

The input received so far is summaried in a presentation, and results from the survey and meetings are also provided individually.
