Governance Study Solutions Report

About the Study

The Governance Study seeks to provide options to improve government services in the Lower Russian River region. The study took place between  February 2023 - February 2024. The report provides a number options for improving local, "city-level" services throughout the Lower Russian River region based on an analysis of funding and governance strategies matched with community input regarding service gaps and needs. 

Through public workshops, stakeholder meetings, and online tools, the community was asked to identify unmet needs, gaps in existing services, and desires for potential new services. The process reviewed current revenue spending and governance tools used to oversee expenditures.  

The Office of Supervisor Lynda Hopkins (District 5) managed the Study with technical and outreach support from Blue Sky Consulting Group based in Oakland, California.
