A More Wonderful Putnam Park
Petaluma’s Scott Ranch property is known for its open meadows and iconic red barns. The land is right next to Sonoma County’s Helen Putnam Regional Park.
Thanks to extensive community support, we have the opportunity to purchase 44 acres of Scott Ranch for parkland from property owner Davidon Homes and to limit development on the remaining 14 acres to 28 mid-range homes. See a map of the proposed project or watch this video tour of Scott Ranch (video opens in a new window).
The Petaluma City Council has voted to direct City staff to move forward with the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the Scott Ranch project. The City Council must certify the FEIR before voting on whether to approve the combined park and housing plan. If approved by the City, we can purchase the 44 acres for the park extension.
