South East Greenway: Complete the City’s Survey by October 4!
Zoom Meeting: September 30, 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. For all Santa Rosa Community Members
|We have a time-bound opportunity to support funding the acquisition and development of the Southeast Greenway – both the park land and the housing portion – with some of the PG&E settlement funds that have been awarded to the City of Santa Rosa. The City is seeking your ideas about how to prioritize using the $95M settlement to make Santa Rosa a more resilient community.
Let’s let them know that we support fire recovery AND making the Southeast Greenway Project happen.
We need each and every one of you to complete a survey! Scroll down to view some ideas that you may wish to include in your responses.

Ideas for Completing the Survey
Project Name: Southeast Greenway
Describe the proposed project:
Acquisition and development of 47 acres of Greenway land into a two-mile linear park offering community residents many amenities and 9.7 acres for housing and mixed use.
Impact of the project:
- Transform unused land into a vibrant community asset that helps meet many City needs
- Convert a heat island into a verdant open space and recreational environment
- Offer safe refuge and evacuation in times of emergency
Benefits of the project:
- Paths for walking and bicycling and 47 acres of public parkland will increase the vibrancy and livability of the community
- The Greenway project includes 9.7 acres zoned for 244 dwelling units, providing much-needed new housing
- The Greenway will be protected and enhanced by creek restoration and planting of native fire-resistant vegetation
- The development of parkland and housing in the Greenway will revitalize nearby business and residential areas and foster neighborhood partnerships and stewardship
- The Greenway will offer space for multiple community gardens, increasing food security and helping neighbors build relationships
