Why Build a Network of Counties?

We’re creating a portal for each of the state’s 58 counties to help you find people, information and resources that are close to home. If you think about it, much of California’s civic infrastructure is organized in this way. Up and down the state there are county boards of supervisors, boards of education and offices of emergency services. Community service organizations are often county-wide operations.

We believe this is the best way to put you in touch with the folks whose decisions matter most to you. Here are the virtual counties we’ve already built.

The Sierra to the Pinnacles

As we work to build out California Local in the rest of the state's 58 counties, we are rapidly expanding our database. In addition to the news and information about the places described above, you will find good stuff here about Placer County, El Dorado County, Nevada County, and San Benito County.

Again, residents of these communities can easily find and connect with their elected officials, local community groups, and each other.
