Present Land Use
The project is located on properties currently within the County of Sonoma and the Sphere of Influence of the City of Rohnert Park. The project area is generally located on each side of Hinebaugh Creek, east of the current City limits, south of Keiser Avenue, west of Petaluma Hill Road, and north of Copeland Creek. The property is more precisely known as APN #045-253-007, 009 through 012, 018; 045-262-001 through 004; 045-131-019, 024 through 027. The UD LLC and Vast Oak properties and portions of the CRPUSD property have been continuously farmed since the early 1900s, while the Abu-Halawa property has structures on it (designated for low-density residential use). The history of the Gee property is unknown, and no structures currently exist on that property; additionally it is not currently farmed. The City of Rohnert Park Community Garden exists on a portion of the CRPUSD property. Agricultural fields occur within much of the Vast Oak and UD LLC portions of the study area. The most recent General Plan has designated the project area for a variety of land uses, including Mixed Use, Rural Estate Residential, High Density Residential, Medium Density Residential, Low Density Residential, Parks, Open Space-Agriculture and Resource Management, and Open Space-Environmental Conservation.
