May 19 Planning Workshop for Hood Mountain Regional Park Expansion
May 11, 2016
Regional Parks invites residents to help shape the future of Hood Mountain
Regional Park and Open Space Preserve at a May 19 planning workshop.
Public feedback is sought on a draft master plan that identifies
recreation and preservation priorities for a recent 247-acre addition to the
park. The workshop is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. at Kenwood Firehouse, 9045
Sonoma Highway, with an open house from 5:30 to 6 p.m.
The planning area
focuses on an area referred to as the Lawson
Addition. Added to the park in 2014, the property
features oak woodlands, grasslands, mixed evergreen forest, and riparian
chaparral/Sargent cypress woodland. A prominent ridgeline offers views of the
Sonoma Valley and beyond. The property includes several special-status plants
and significant cultural resources. The property’s rugged backcountry
provides an opportunity for new multi-use trails and greater connectivity to
existing trails within the park.
will be the last public workshop for the master plan update. Regional Parks
expects to bring a final draft master plan to the Board of Supervisors for
approval in early 2017.
