What & Why?
Sonoma County Regional Parks Department is currently in the Master Planning process to re-vision this neighborhood park in the Springs area of Sonoma Valley. The updated Master Plan will outline any renovations to the existing park facilities, and describe any new features to be included based on the future needs of the neighborhood residents and broader community of Sonoma Valley. Renovations and the inclusion of any new park features will be balanced with natural resource values, conservation objectives and the existing conditions of the site.
At a well-attended community workshop last year, Regional Parks presented three conceptual alternative plans for the park. Based on the feedback received at that workshop, a draft preferred plan is in the works. In August of 2017, there will be a follow-up Community Workshop scheduled to review the draft preferred Master Plan, and engage the public in the environmental review and the CEQA scoping process. That meeting will be followed by an environmental review of the plan as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
