Cloverdale to consider adopting an urban growth boundary

Public hearings will take place June 2 and June 23

Cloverdale is the only city in Sonoma without an urban growth boundary — a line that clearly defines where development should and should not go in the city.  But after years of community input and urging by Greenbelt Alliance, the City Council is now poised to place an urban growth boundary measure on the 2010 ballot.

In June, the City of Cloverdale will hold two public hearings on the draft urban growth boundary, the first on June 2 with the Cloverdale Planning Commission, and the second, and final, hearing on June 23 with the City Council.

Now is the time to take action: Tell Council that Cloverdale wants an urban growth boundary! However, before the measure goes on the ballot, the City Council should:

  • Remove the Asti winery exception area from within the urban growth boundary.
  • Limit the type of development at Asti, if it stays inside the line.
  • Allow no new development in Rains Creek and the Western Hillsides.

Take action: Speak up for the urban growth boundary at the June 2 or June 23 public hearing.  If you can not attend a hearing, send an email to Council or write a letter to Council: P.O. Box 217, Cloverdale, CA 95425.
