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.

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. There were two Sonoma County Planning Commission public hearings which took place on September 28, 2017 and August 16, 2018.

The Master Plan and Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will go before the Board of Supervisors for review and final approval on October 9, 2018. Upon Master Plan and Final EIR approval, Tolay Lake Regional Park may be opened to the public and the limited Interim Access Permit Program will end. Initial public access improvements will be finalized on the southern property prior to the Park opening.
