What & Why?

Sonoma County Regional Parks Department has undertaken a master planning process for Tolay Lake Regional Park. The Master Plan identifies appropriate uses, actions to protect natural and cultural resources, and ways to maintain the Park’s agricultural heritage.

The Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, Sonoma Land Trust, and Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District are critical partners in the master planning process. There have been many opportunities for public input throughout the master planning process.

What's Next?

The Sonoma County Regional Parks Department sought input on the Tolay Lake Regional Park Master Plan Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR). Public comments on the adequacy of the environmental analysis contained in the Draft EIR were accepted from January 10, 2017 to February 23, 2017. The first of two Sonoma County Planning Commission public hearings took place on September 28, 2017. The anticipated date of the second Planning Commission public hearing is February 2018.

The Master Plan and Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is anticipated to go before the Board of Supervisors for review and final approval in Spring of 2018. Upon Master Plan and FEIR approval, Tolay Lake Regional Park will be open to the public and the limited Interim Access Permit Program will end. Initial public access improvements will be finalized on the southern property (not yet open through the Interim Access Plan), converting existing ranch roads to trails.

Once the Plan is approved, construction bids will go out and phases of the Plan will be implemented. It is anticipated that the Tolay Lake Regional Park will be open to the public in Spring/Summer of 2018 at which point the limited Access Permit Program will end.
