[ARCHIVED] Board Adopts Annual Priorities

At Tuesday's February 12th Board of Supervisors meeting, the Board adopted their annual priorities. These priorities outline the Board's objectives for staff for the upcoming year.

Wildfire, homelessness, housing, cannabis and maintaining the County's fiscal stability and core services remain top priorities for the Board. Supporting economic development and civic engagement, and continuing research into the potential reorganization of western county park and recreation districts and the best use of "Lot 6," the current Public Works Yard near the Nevada County Airport, also remain on the Board's annual priorities.

Board Objectives:

Priority A

  • Maintain the County's financial stability and core services.
  • Reduce the risk of local wildfire and the effects of wildfire on life, property and the environment by providing leadership and support to community partners, pursuing State and Federal funding, implementing county policies and programs, and assisting the public to be “wildfire ready.” Explore other ways to reduce the threat and damage from wildfires.
  • In partnership with community providers and other jurisdictions, build an expanded system of coordinated care, outreach, transitional and permanent housing, and supportive services to address the needs of the homeless population and to mitigate impacts on the community.
  • Coordinate with local jurisdictions, developers and other partners to maximize leveraging opportunities with new state funding for affordable and workforce housing development.
  • Adopt a County cannabis ordinance and implement an effective cannabis compliance and permitting program to promote permitted cannabis activities.

Priority B

  • Support job-enhancing economic development with an emphasis on infrastructure that expands or preserves commerce and provides leadership and coordination opportunities to bring funding sources and community partnerships together including ERC, SBC, RCRC, CSAC and USDA.

Priority C

  • Increase public awareness and civic engagement by providing easy access to information on County-related services and to encourage citizens to participate in local government. Work with departments to implement new ways to engage with, and provide information to, citizens.
  • Complete the feasibility analysis of a potential reorganization of western county park and recreation districts for increased collaboration and efficient operation of facilities and administration of services.
  • Pursue the best use and maximum value for the redevelopment of “Lot 6” which may include a mix of aviation and commercial uses.

Each year in January, the Board meets for a two-day workshop to look at their annual priorities. Priorities and objectives are revised and then adopted at a Board meeting in February.
