SVCAC looks at Springs housing/ hotel proposal





The Sonoma Valley Citizens Advisory Commission (SVCAC) meets next on Feb. 26, and will review a proposal for 72 units of affordable housing and a 120-room mid-priced hotel at 175 Verano Ave. in the Springs area.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. and is being held in the Sonoma City Council chambers, 177 First St. West in Sonoma.

The affordable apartments, to be known as Verano Family Housing, would likely be developed and managed by MidPen Housing Corporation, which has built over 100 affordable housing communities in Northern California.

The hotel component, known as the Verano Hotel, would be owned and operated by the Springs Investors Group (SIG). SIG is owned by the Krug family, which has lived in the area for over seven decades. The hotel would provide mid-priced accommodations, and have a swimming pool, meeting rooms and a gym. There would be no restaurant or spa.

The project is located on parcels that used to be the former site of Paul’s Resort, across from Maxwell Farms Regional Park.

The SVCAC reviews development projects and makes recommendations to county officials. This project will eventually go to an as-yet unscheduled public meeting in front of the Sonoma County Planning Commission.
