We welcome you to experience California the way it used to be: family friendly, hard working and serene. The Capay Valley is a tranquil region of Northern California nestled between the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area and the metropolitan region of the Sacramento Valley. We invite you to come and immerse yourself in this unique section of Yolo County.
Home to several small communities, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, farms and ranches, and an abundance of wildlife, the beauty of the Capay Valley is found in its rolling hills, natural creeks and affable residents. Whether you call it home or just come to visit, the Capay Valley will remind you of the importance of preserving rural America.
In 2000 a group of residents-including farmers, townspeople, and the Tribal Council of Rumsey Indian Rancheria-came together to discuss issues facing the Capay Valley Region and to develop strategies to manage growth and preserve a sense of place. CVV incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 2001 to establish a community-wide vision for the future of the Capay Valley Region and to facilitate an ongoing collaborative process for planning.

Background on the prior version of the Action Plan (also known as Consensus Document):
This document was created in response to a Yolo County request to develop a coherent road map for the future of the Capay Valley. Prepared by the multiple organizations listed at the end of the document, it was submitted to Yolo County but has not received further action by them. It has been used by the participating organizations including Capay Valley Vision as a backbone for testimony, grant requests and planned action.
