For Immediate Release
Input Sought on Maxwell Farms Regional Park Master Plan Update
Santa Rosa,CA | June 30, 2017
Regional Parks is hosting a community meeting July 12 to review and invite feedback on a draft master plan update for Maxwell Farms Regional Park in Sonoma. The meeting is from 7 PM to 8:30 PM at the Boys and Girls Club inside the park at 100 W. Verano Avenue.
The plan update outlines improvements to the park that could be constructed over time, and designates plans for new features such as a small bike park, an off-leash dog area, pickle ball courts, and lighting. The plan also describes how existing facilities such as the sports fields, playground, picnic areas, parking and trails could be upgraded, expanded, or relocated.
The goal of the master plan update is to establish a vision for the park that better meets the community’s current and future recreational needs, increases safety and accessibility, and protects and enhances its environmental resources.
Planners at the July 12 meeting will discuss the review required by the California Environmental Quality Act as part of the approval process. The draft plan will be available for review online following the meeting, with public comment invited through Aug. 4. There also will be an opportunity for public comment during a 30-day review period subsequent to the preparation of the final draft master plan update and draft CEQA documentation.
