Similar to the County of Napa’s efforts to develop a Climate Action Plan, the Sonoma County Regional Climate Protection Authority (RCPA) has been developing Sonoma County’s Climate Action 2020 Plan. Justin Witt, Senior Environmental Planner, has collaborated with RCPA on their efforts and has a thorough understanding of what Climate Action Plans require. He also worked with RCPA and the North Bay Climate Adaptation Initiative (NBCAI) to host the first ever Sonoma County Climate Adaptation Forum at Sonoma State University to bring the issue of climate adaptation to the forefront and is currently planning a follow-up day with County leaders and planners to develop a roadmap to climate resilience. Having worked with infrastructure planning and CEQA review of such, he understands the need to provide climate resilience in all projects going forward and looks to incorporate his knowledge in our engineering projects.
