On March 23rd the Board of Supervisors, acting as Directors of the Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, recommended $5,805,600 in funding for six Matching Grant Program projects that will benefit residents throughout the county. This funding will add 145 acres of new public spaces, including the creation of two new parks, the expansion and enhancement of three existing parks, and a critical trail connection in Bodega Bay.
          One of the projects funded by the matching grants will be particularly valuable to residents of the Third District. It includes a 75-acre expansion of Crane Creek Regional Park with added trails, new park connections to the City of Rohnert Park and Sonoma State University, and a safe crossing of Petaluma Hill Road to connect the city with open space and recreation lands to the east.
