Media Coverage on the SDC Closure Plan

September 23, 2015:

Stated by John McCaull of the Sonoma Land Trust at the 2nd DDS Public Hearing, September 21st:

“The Draft Plan stops far short of our vision,” he said in a statement. “We appreciate the State’s recognition that they do not intend to sell or transfer SDC as surplus property because of its natural resources and historical importance, but we need to start planning for the future now… and not waiting until all the residents have been moved to begin developing a reuse strategy.”
