Santa Cruz County Community Open Houses
Santa Cruz County is hosting a series of community open houses to review a set of draft strategies with approaches for achieving the County Strategic Plan goals. The Strategic Plan has been developed to guide County work over the next six years, focusing on Comprehensive Health and Safety, Attainable Housing, Reliable Transportation, Sustainable Environment, Dynamic Ecomony and County Operational Excellence.

At each open house, attendees will have a chance to review and provide feedback on these strategies, which will later be connected with a series of specific, measurable objectives linked to each focus area in the Strategic Plan. Spanish translation will be available, and all ages are welcome. Dates, times and locations for all open houses can be found here.
