General Plan Amendment for Greenway Coming in 2016
On October 6th the Santa Rosa City Council voted unanimously to initiate a General Plan Amendment and Rezoning of the undeveloped Highway 12 between Farmers Lane and Spring Lake Park. This is a very important and positive step forward for the Southeast Greenway Project!
The General Plan Amendment process will provide many opportunities for community members to share their ideas for the best uses of the Greenway land. Our Community Partnership considers it an essential step towards establishing a fair value for the property and acquiring the land.
We want to acknowledge our Community Partners for their work in support of this accomplishment and send a heartfelt thanks to the many Greenway supporters who showed up on October 6th and encouraged City Council to advance the Southeast Greenway. You made a positive difference!

The Southeast Greenway Campaign has been awarded a National Park Service's "Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance" grant for the coming year. This technical assistance grant will offer the Campaign consultation in the area of communication, helping us determine how best to tell the Greenway story using a variety of media. We look forward to working with the RCTA consultant in the year ahead!
