Regional Priority Plan

The Contra Costa Resource Conservation District (CCRCD) and the Alameda County Resource Conservation District (ACRCD) worked jointly with funding from the Coastal Conservancy to develop a Regional Priority Plan (RPP) for Contra Costa and Alameda Counties. The goal of the Regional Priority Plan process was to identify regional natural resource concerns that could be exacerbated by catastrophic wildfire and develop projects or other methods to remedy those issues ahead of the next fire. The planning process started in November 2020 and completed in September 2022.

The Contra Costa and Alameda County Regional Priority Plan is available to view in two files, one with maps (60+ megabyes), one without maps (6 megabytes).
