Current Priorities

Food Policy Council

Upon adoption of the Douglas County Food System Plan in summer 2017, the Food Policy Council established a new set of priorities that target several of the policy action items listed within the plan. (The Plan is organized by Goal --> Objective --> Policy Action Item.) Learn more below and reach out to us if you're interested in engaging with us or have a question!

  • Examining internal Council functions for equity and inclusion
  • Building an equitable entrepreneurial ecosystem
  • Climate impacts and action opportunities in our food system
  • Incorporating agrivoltaics into utility-scale solar regulations
  • Compiling progress on the Douglas County Food System Plan and sharing impacts with the community
  • Supporting the development of the Douglas Indigenous Food System Study and Action Plan
