On October 22, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors voted to fund the purchase of land in downtown Forestville for Open Space, an extension of the West County Trail and development of a real Town Square.
The final papers were recorded on Friday, November 15.
It has been an extraordinary process and a fascinating journey. FPA simply could not have done it without a tremendous amount of support from hundreds of Forestville residents. Thank you.
The Open Space Easement now covers a full 4 acres, the east side and south area of the property.
In the map above, the right side (purple diagonal-lined boxes) is the 4 acres conservation easement areas (open space park and town square).
The four acres will preserve the oak grove and lower wetlands, provide overflow parking for downtown businesses, a place for Forestvillians to hold their traditional Holiday Tree Lighting and include the completion of the West County Trail.
Together we have created a wonderful legacy for generations to come.
