An updated Airport Area Specific Plan will reflect current market conditions and community needs for 810 acres anchored by the Airport and a new SMART station. The plan could potentially provide up to 12,000 jobs by 2040 with additional affordable and workforce housing opportunities to support a local economy focused on industrial and commercial businesses.
The Springs Specific Plan will help guide future development and land use in a roughly 180-acre area in the central Sonoma Valley. The area includes portions of Agua Caliente, Fetters Hot Springs, Boyes Hot Springs, Donald Street and is currently home to around 1,800 residents and a number of local businesses. The community has identified investments in housing, transportation and public spaces as top goals for the plan. The plan would improve public spaces, enhance walking, bicycling and transit options, support a broader mix of commercial and residential uses, and provide the potential for more than 600 new homes.

Completion Date: Adoption by the Board of Supervisors, Summer 2022
The SDC Specific Plan will create a Sonoma County Board of Supervisors-adopted plan and EIR to redevelop 900 acres in the heart of Sonoma Valley. Once home to a community of people with developmental disabilities and the largest employer in the Sonoma Valley, the site will create a vibrant place to live, work and play for future generations. Directed by a set of Guiding Principles and a community vision for the site, the development program will balance key factors such as market demand and site constraints with input from the community. The process ensures creating a community that respects the site’s history and becomes a critical part of the future of Sonoma Valley.
