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 47 acres of the 58- acre Scott Ranch (81%) for parkland from property owner Davidon Homes and to limit development on the remaining land to 28 mid-range homes. Click here to see a map of the proposed project or watch this video tour of Scott Ranch. Curious about what’s changed with the updated home plan? Check out this side-by-side comparison of Davidon’s original 28-home proposal with the improved Fall 2021 proposal.

What’s Next

The Petaluma City Council will soon review 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 47 acres for the park extension.
