On May 23, the Santa Rosa Planning Commission unanimously approved the Environmental Impact Report (EIR), Zoning and General Plan Amendment for the Southeast Greenway. The project now goes to the City Council for approval. It is currently scheduled for a public hearing on July 9. We will send out more specific information in July when the Agenda and Staff Report become available.
Greenway Partner Sonoma Land Trust (SLT) has received a $250,000 grant from Community Foundation Sonoma County to support the acquisition of the SE Greenway. “SLT is excited to play a part in this one-time opportunity to bring nature within a short walk of many city residents,” says Wendy Eliot, SLT’s conservation director. “This grant marks a significant step toward making the Greenway vision a reality.”
