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 Master Plan was created and presented for review and comment at a subsequent public meeting on August 23, 2017. The Draft Master Plan as presented at that meeting is available here.
The plan was generally well-received and park planners continue to consider minor revisions in response to community input. Once finalized the Master Plan will undergo an environmental review process pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
There will be an additional public review period following the preparation of the environmental document before it is brought with the Master Plan to the Board of Supervisors for adoption and approval.
