Caring for Our Community’s Future


The New Forestville Signs

by Lucy Hardcastle

Have you noticed the new town signs? We have Dan Northern to thank for designing it, getting Brian Frazee of BCF Heritage to build it and DW Enterprises and Canyon Rock for getting it in the ground. The simple, but elegant redwood and stainless-steel structure was a long time in coming but worth the wait. Dan hopes to get solar lighting installed for an even more dramatic look at night. Appreciation to the County for helping to fund the sign and to the Chamber for supporting Dan’s efforts on our behalf.

The Concept of Plan Approved By Ag + Open Space
If you have driven by or visited the Forestville Downtown Oaks Park recently, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the construction equipment activity that began in the middle of June. Happily, that activity is the result of years-long planning and collaboration among Sonoma County Regional Parks, the Sonoma County Ag + Open Space District, and the Forestville Planning Association.
