‘Road Summit’ seeks concrete facts, solutions

How Sonoma County’s roads became among the worst in the state – and what can be done about it – is the focus of the Sonoma Valley Road Summit on Wednesday, Oct. 9, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Ramekins, 450 W. Spain St. in Sonoma. The event is free and open to the public.

The event features a report by County Transportation and Public Works Director Susan Klassen, followed by a question and answer session and dialog with the audience.

Boyes Hot Springs resident Gina Cuclis, County Board of Education trustee, organized the forum in collaboration with Save Our Sonoma Roads (SOSroads). SOSroads is a countywide, grassroots group founded in 2011 to improve the condition of Sonoma County roads. Craig Harrison and Michael Troy, co-founders and leaders of SOSroads, will be on the panel.

First District Supervisor Susan Gorin will give an opening statement. Cuclis, who moderate the panel, said there is a real need in Sonoma Valley for better information on the county roads issue. “The objective is to provide information that is concrete, honest and useful for those of us who live every day with the problem of our county’s crumbling roads.”

More than half the scheduled time is devoted to dialog with the audience, she said.
“I intend to get people’s questions answered.”

The event will be telecast live on SVTV, Cable Channel 27. For more information, contact Cuclis at 939.8598 or ginacuclis@gmail.com, or visit sosroads.org.
