Located less than 30 miles north of San Francisco, Sonoma County is at the threshold between the commerce-driven San Francisco Bay Area and the spectacular beauty of Northern California. Sonoma County is home to almost 500,000 people, with approximately 36 percent of the population residing in Santa Rosa, the County seat. While home prices reflect the value of living in an area that offers an abundance of amenities, the prices of Sonoma County homes remain amongst the more affordable in the greater Bay Area.

Recently named by Forbes Magazine as one of America’s 500 Best Midsized Employers, the only government agency in California to make the list, the County of Sonoma has a mission to enrich the quality of life in Sonoma County through superior public services. The Sonoma County Community Development Commission (CDC) administers a range of programs designed to assist low to moderate-income homeowners and tenants and to encourage community and commercial revitalization.

Reporting to the County Administrator and working closely with the Board of Supervisors, who serve as the Board of Commissioners of the CDC, the Executive Director plans, organizes, directs, and coordinates the CDC’s programs and all operations of the Commission.
