What & Why?
Two properties were added to Sonoma Valley Regional Park: the 29-acre Curreri Addition, and a 41-acre property from the Sonoma Developmental Center.
Regional Parks refined the park Master Plan, and worked with the community and agencies on how the expansion properties could best serve the public, while preserving the sites’ sensitive habitats.
The Sonoma County Regional Parks Department sought input on the Sonoma Valley Regional Park Expansion Master Plan and Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration/Initial Study (IS/MND). Public comments on the adequacy of the environmental analysis contained in the Draft IS/MND were accepted from May 12 through June 12, 2017. The IS/MND (which includes the Master Plan) can be viewed or downloaded here:
Master Plan Approved
On September 12, 2017, the Board of Supervisors of the County of Sonoma voted unanimously to approve the Master Plan and adopt the Mitigated Negative Declaration and Monitoring Program for the Sonoma Valley Regional Park Expansion.
Construction of new trails and other features will begin in the Spring of 2018.
