More Sprawl in North Sonoma County?

Action Alert: Cloverdale's Boundary Moves Too Far South

On April 1, the Cloverdale Planning Commission voted to extend the city’s boundary 1.2 miles south of town, across vineyards and open space, all the way to neighboring Asti. Unfortunately, this was not an April Fools’ Day prank.

Greenbelt Alliance was glad to see Cloverdale move one step closer to adopting an urban growth boundary, but disappointed at the decision to extend city limits so far south—essentially increasing the future size of the city by 65%. Despite strong public criticism, the Commission voted to lay the groundwork for future potential sprawling development to the south of town.

Join Greenbelt Alliance’s efforts to reverse this decision at the City Council meeting Wednesday, April 22.

When: 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 22
Where: Cloverdale Senior Center, 311 North Main Street, Cloverdale
