Heidi Hall — an effective, resourceful and compassionate leader on the issues that matter most to Nevada County

Wildfires

Promise:

Advocated support of the Fire Safe Council, and more hands-on evacuation planning, as the best way to engage neighborhoods in fire safety plans and preparation

  • The County has created a more robust and expanded  Office of Emergency Services
  • We are proactively seeking grants for vegetation management projects, equipment, education and evacuation planning

Cannabis

Promise:

Allow small well -regulated craft cannabis operations in the County

Result:

  • Our cannabis farmers are now coming into the light with regulated farms, businesses and licenses

Homelessness

Promise:

Make homeless services a priority.

Result:

  • We now have a dedicated Homeless Outreach manager and a HOME team
  • The County has helped Hospitality House expand
  • The County purchased land to build more housing and a day center

Broadband

Promise:

  • Access to Broadband for all must be  a priority in Nevada County

Result:

  • Today increasing broadband is a high priority item
  • The Board is working with RACE to provide broadband, and seeking other strategies for larger solutions
  • This year we will be soliciting grants for Nevada County specifically and rolling out a County-wide broadband plan.

Going forward:

“In my next term, I hope to take these accomplishments and build on them, with increased fire and disaster prevention efforts, expanded broadband especially for emergency services, additional services for homeless as well as getting some construction started on affordable housing, and continue to refine and regulate our cannabis industry.”
