What & Why?
The Estero Trail project proposes to define and dedicate a public access, pedestrian-only, trail easement alignment that would connect Highway 1 to the Estero Americano. This is a partnership between Regional Parks and the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation & Open Space District. The proposed project location is on the Bordessa Ranch property located just north of Valley Ford between Hwy 1 and the Estero Americano.
The Sonoma County Permit and Resource Management Department previously prepared and circulated an initial study and a draft Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Estero Trail Easement: Designation of Trail Corridors and Associated Staging Areas Project. After reviewing the information disclosed by the draft Mitigated Negative Declaration document, the Board of Directors of the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District and the Board of Supervisors of the County of Sonoma directed staff to prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the development of the proposed project.
The County held a scoping meeting to provide an opportunity for agency staff and interested members of the public to submit comments on the scope of the environmental issues to be addressed in the EIR. The meeting was held on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at the Valley Ford School House in Valley Ford, CA.
Public meeting dates and other planning information will be shared on this website. To get the latest news, please sign up for “Planning Updates” on the right of this page.
