Strategy Development

Throughout the spring, the Stream Health Initiative stakeholder workgroup developed strategies for improving stream health in the county.  Selected strategies were presented to the Board of Supervisors in July, some of which are currently being developed into proposals.  The proposal development stage involves evaluating many different factors -- including effectiveness at improving stream health, positive/negative impacts to the community, cost, staff time, and legal issues, to name a few. 

Alignment with other County Plans

Many of the stream health strategies included in this questionnaire overlap with strategies and recommended actions in other County plans.  We’ve noted these potential co-benefits under ‘Alignment’ for each strategy.  Learn more by reading the Climate Action Plan and Biodiversity Action Plan.

This questionnaire is designed to provide you with an opportunity to share your feedback on each strategy of the Stream Health Initiative. Each page is dedicated to a specific approach (regulatory, voluntary, etc). In addition to the option-based response, we invite you to share your comments so that our project team may better understand your selection. You may opt to make your comments "private", in which case they will only be shared with the project team and will not display on the questionnaire page.
