Sonoma County: Success Story of California's Coastal Development

by Gail M. Odom, State Coastal Conservancy, Oakland, CA, USA,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '85

Abstract:

The Sea Ranch second home development, agricultural and timber land preservation, the need for better commercial fishing facilities, and recreational and visual access to the coast were some of the major issues to be solved in Sonoma County's Coastal Plan. Sonoma County's Coastal Plan was certified by the State Coastal Commission in December, 1980, and efforts over the past five years have focused on implementing the recommendations made in the plan. These projects show the excellent integration of State-wide goals with the local expression of these goals.
