Announcement of Community Open House for the Springs Specific Plan

Santa Rosa, CA  –  February 24, 2017  –  A community open house for the Springs Specific Plan will be held on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 6:00 PM, at the Sonoma Charter School Multi-Purpose Room, in Sonoma. The open house is being held to introduce the community to three potential land use and circulation options developed for the Springs Specific Plan. One of these alternatives will be used as a basis for the draft Specific Plan. The public is encouraged to attend the meeting and provide input on the alternative they prefer.

The area affected by the Specific Plan includes the Highway 12 corridor from Agua Caliente Road to Verano Avenue and the residential area in the vicinity of Donald Street. Once adopted, the Springs Specific Plan will be used to guide future development in the Springs and gradually transform the area into a more vibrant, sustainable, and pedestrian-oriented community, with a focus on active transportation and enhanced transit opportunities.

Another community meeting will be held once the draft Specific Plan is compete to provide the public with an opportunity to review the Specific Plan and provide comments.

The community may also provide input on the Springs Specific Plan alternatives or request notification of future meetings by contacting County staff.

Information may be found by visiting the project website or by emailing County staff, Yolanda Solano, at
