Are you in favor of a Davidon Homes housing development near Helen Putnam Park?

We care about the future of Petaluma!

Davidon Homes (a luxury home builder from Walnut Creek) developed plans in 2004 for 93 homes
on 58 acres at D Street and Windsor, right next to Helen Putnam County Regional Park and Petaluma's urban growth boundary.

Petalumans for Responsible Planning (PetRP) has existed for over 13 years and is an unincorporated association for social welfare purposes. PetRP is concerned IF Davidon's plan has gone far enough to protect the environment and enable the public to enjoy the recreation opportunities of this incredible, one-of-kind location.   We seek to give voice to the community's concerns about this development, to pursue open space and parkland alternatives, and to enforce our environmental laws.
