River Enhancement Plan

The overriding purpose of the Petaluma River Access and Enhancement Plan is to describe this community's vision for the Petaluma River, including its riverfront uses, activities, and developments. Implementation of this plan will result in a waterfront environment that is the jewel in Petaluma's crown.

This plan elaborates on the Petaluma General Plan 1987-2005 regarding the river and the properties abutting it. As the most comprehensive statement of this community's vision for the river and riverfront development, this plan will be used by policymakers, property owners, and interested citizens to guide the metamorphosis of the river into the central feature of Petaluma.

The Petaluma River Access and Enhancement Plan is available for download below, at the City of Petaluma's Public Library and at the Community Development Department, 11 English St. Petaluma, CA.
