The Community Alliances would like to announce our stance on any proposed homeless service center.
We would like to start by being very clear that we are neither for nor against any proposed service center at any proposed location at this time. We reserve the right to change that position as information changes, specifically after the town meeting being planned by Supervisor Lynda Hopkins on March 29th at 6pm at the Guerneville Elementary school, when/where everyone's voices can be heard. We are encouraging the community to come up with constructive ideas in the event a service center is opened somewhere within our community. It is our hope to try and change the conversation from a divisive one, to let's all work together and fix this as a community.
Emergency Operations Center continues to respond to flood recovery and monitoring upcoming storm
While another winter storm is expected to hit Sonoma County starting Wednesday, January 18, the California Nevada River Forecast Center does not forecast flooding of the Russian River as a result. River levels are expected to remain at normal level (below 28.5 feet) throughout the week and into the weekend. The County’s Emergency Operations Center continues to remain active to assist with flood recovery efforts and provide updated information on this coming storm to Sonoma County residents.
