Survey on Greenway Land Use Alternatives
Available October 10 - 26
You still have time to join in the land use visioning for the Southeast Greenway. This survey will be the basis for recommendations to the City Council and Planning Commission when they meet in November, so the time to weigh in is NOW!
The City’s planning consulting firm, PlaceWorks, has created a Community Input Survey with illustrative maps showing the overall concept and land uses for each of 3 Alternative Greenway Plans. After reviewing the overall concepts, you will be able to “zoom in”, review the land use concepts, and provide feedback using three detailed segment maps of the property.
You can complete the survey online or download a print copy of the survey at www.planthegreenway.com. Print surveys can be dropped off at City Hall, Room 10 (open 8 am – 5 pm), Monday through Friday. Or you can mail your survey to City Hall, Room 3, 100 Santa Rosa Ave., Santa Rosa, CA 95404. Please complete and return the survey by October 26, 2016.
Take a Guided Greenway Walk this Fall!
When: Wednesday, October 26th, 5:15-7:00 pm
Where: Meet at Yulupa Cohousing, 1346 Yulupa Ave, Santa Rosa
The autumn weather should be perfect for a walk along the edge of the Southeast Greenway! You may be surprised that this land hosts three creeks, many oak and walnut trees, and wide swaths of open space that provide great views of Bennett Peak and Taylor Mountain. Learn more about the property’s potential for restoration, recreation and a variety of land uses.
Meet walk leaders at Yulupa Cohousing. We’ll gather in the courtyard, entering through the front door. Street parking is available. This walk is about 2 miles round trip on city streets and sidewalks. Terrain is mostly flat but includes one fairly steep hill. Remember to bring your hat, water, snacks, and a warm jacket as it cools off quickly in the evening.
Please Register Please register by clicking here at our Eventbrite page. For further information, please email us at info@SoutheastGreenway.org or call us at 707-703-1922. Please include your name, email address and the best phone number to reach you at. Heavy rain cancels!
Open Space District Kicks Off Greenway Fundraising
A $1 million grant application to the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District’s Matching Grant Program for the Santa Rosa Southeast Greenway ranked #1 out of all of the proposals and was approved by the District’s Advisory Committee at their August 25 meeting! The Committee’s recommendation will go to the Board of Supervisors for final approval in October. Kudos and thanks to our Greenway Partners, Sonoma Land Trust and the City of Santa Rosa, for preparing and supporting the grant application.
We are thrilled at the prospect of adding the Open Space District to the Southeast Greenway Partnership and appreciate this huge boost to our fundraising goals.
