Taylor Mountain Interim Plan Meeting Thursday Nov 6, 6pm at Sonoma Academy

The Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation & Open Space District released a
document outlining their Interim Public Access Permit Program to the 1106
acre Taylor Mountain property in Santa Rosa, Access to the property is
similar to other permit programs we've seen, such as Willow Creek in
Duncan's Mills and Tolay Regional Palk in Petaluma.

However, as it stands right now, the Taylor Mountain plan limits access to
hikers only, cyclists and equestrians are not allowed. We need your support
to ensure that the District's plan for access is consistent with their
long-range acquisition plan- Connecting communities and the Land.

The District is currently seeking comments on the plan through November 14.
Join us this Thursday for a public meeting at the Sonoma Academy located at
the end of Kawana Springs Road via Santa Rosa Ave. If you need more specific
directions, please contact the District at 565.7360

This is a damn good meeting to go to. Here in Sonoma County LandPaths and Open Space District keep the public out of designated open space while attempting to give the impression that they are public serving agencies. This allows ranch and land owners to gain tax breaks in exchange for an open space designation, but not "suffer" the intrusion of the public on their private property. LandPaths makes sure only their "designees" can access public open space by attending their infrequent "workshops" essentially limiting greatly the number of people who have access. LandPaths wants you to think they are a magnanimous environmental agency but they really are a dog and pony show designed to prevent access.

Take a look at Marin County Open Space and go to this meeting, voice your
opinion. User Groups Unite for Open Space Access!
