Right now, the long thin strip of land from Farmers Lane to Spring Lake in Southeast Santa Rosa is bare and disused. But a shared vision for its transformation into a community Greenway is now documented and under discussion.
Some 300 interested citizens took park in the visioning meetings last summer, including a group of students from Montgomery High School, which abuts the Greenway corridor near it's western end. LInda Proux says their input was valualble in multiple ways.
Getting the visioning document done was an important first step toward actually creating a Greenway from the vacant highway corridor. Now, says Steve Rabinowitsh, the detail work to make it happen is about to begin.
