Greenway Facts

When completed, a two-mile-long Class 1 bicycle path will run through the Greenway. The path will provide a key link in our County’s trail network, connecting with Sonoma Valley trails to the east, SMART and its associated trails north and south, the Prince Memorial Greenway and West County trails reaching all the way to Forestville.

City’s Planning Schedule for Greenway

This is a busy time on the road to adopting a General Plan Amendment for the SE Greenway. Here is the City’s draft planning schedule for the Greenway project:

  • August 21 – Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is published and 45-day public comment period begins
  • September 14 – Planning Commission holds Public Hearing on Draft EIR
  • December 14 – Planning Commission Reviews EIR, General Plan Amendment and Rezoning Plan
  • January 30, 2018 – City Council considers EIR, General Plan Amendment and Rezoning (tentative date)

Based on feedback from the City Council, Planning Commission and community, the City’s planning consultant is using the preferred alternative plan as the basis for preparing an environmental impact report, a draft General Plan Amendment and rezoning plan.

Please make time to review and comment on the Draft Environmental Impact Report and plan to attend all of the Planning Commission and City Council meetings that pertain to the Greenway in coming months. These represent our last opportunities to have input into the General Plan Amendment that establishes land uses for the Greenway.

Take a Walk on the Greenway

Saturday, July 8th | 8:00 – 10:00 am
Meet at Montgomery High parking lot near tennis courts 

Join us for a walk along the edge of the Southeast Greenway. Learn more about the property’s potential uses – community gardens, gathering spaces, trails, parkland, and natural habitat restoration – based on the City’s preferred alternative plan. You may be surprised to see that this land hosts three creeks, many oak and walnut trees, and wide swaths of open space that provide great views of Taylor and Bennett Mountains.

This walk is about 2.5 miles round trip on city streets and sidewalks, with stops to view important features. Terrain is mostly flat but includes one fairly steep hill. Remember to bring hats, water, snacks, and sunscreen.

Please register by emailing us at info@SoutheastGreenway.org or calling us at (707) 703-1922. Please include your name, email address, and the best phone number to reach you at.
