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.
Whenever a jurisdiction determines that an EIR is required for a project, CEQA Guidelines require that a Notice of Preparation (NOP) be prepared to allow for agencies and the public to comment on potential environmental issues that should be studied in the report. The purpose of the environmental scoping process under the CEQA Guidelines is to provide a means for the public and other public agencies to provide “early input” in identifying and articulating any specific environmental concerns or environmental items to be analyzed in the environmental document.

The Scoping Meeting is an opportunity for the public, City decision makers and agencies to make recommendations on environmental topics issues that should be analyzed in the EIR. The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) requires a public scoping meeting to inform the public that the lead agency, the City of Rohnert Park, is evaluating a project under the CEQA, and to solicit public comment regarding the potential environmental issues that should be studied.
