Rohnert Park is a master-planned community in Sonoma County, located along the Northwestern Pacific right-of-way and Highway 101. Since its last update in 2000, much has changed in the city and the region. With this General Plan Update process, we will consider many issues, including but not limited to, how to balance the preservation of Rohnert Park's heritage with the changes desired for the future.
As this project progresses, this website will be your primary source for access to all materials related to the General Plan update, including project documents, meeting dates and times, as well as information on the basics of a general plan to get you oriented to this process. Simply use the menus to obtain the information you need. Feel free to check out the "How to Guide" under the Resources menu for an in-depth look at how to use this website.
The City of Rohnert Park is working with the community on the development of the 2040 General Plan. As part of this effort, the City Council will review the Draft Climate Change Element as part of the Study Session. The Climate Change Element and topic of Climate Change was identified by the Council as an important priority for the City at the March 9, 2021, meeting. At their meeting the Council adopted Resolution 2021-026, to “endorse the declaration of a climate emergency.” The climate emergency resolution directs the City to address Climate Change. The goals and policies of the Draft Climate Change Element have been developed to help address the measures adopted with Resolution 2021-026, as well as to help the City comply with various state laws around greenhouse reduction. Information on how to view the meeting and provide comments on this item can be found in the meeting agenda.
