When he’s not busy lending his expertise to the firm’s not-for-profit clients, Hood & Strong Assurance and Advisory Partner Jorge Servin serves on the board of the Petaluma River Park Foundation, the non-profit responsible for the new world-class public park taking shape in the heart of downtown Petaluma.
Jorge and the Foundation’s executive director, Seair Lorentz, were recently featured in a KTVU-TV segment to talk about the park and the Foundation’s plans to transform the 24-acre waterfront site into a welcoming public gathering space connecting people, art and nature.
As Jorge and Seair explained, the Petaluma River Park offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to co-create and build a public resource of highly valuable, undeveloped open space for community enjoyment. Plans include over one mile of public access trails, recreation amenities, habitat protection and enhancement, and an ongoing series of rotating art exhibitions. This new North Bay jewel is surrounded by the Petaluma River and yet easily accessible from the center of town and nearby public transportation.
As work continues on habitat restoration and visitor amenities, the Petaluma River Park is open to the public every day from dawn until dusk, and the Foundation offers free guided tours on the first Saturday of every month. Don’t miss a visit to this beautiful new urban park destination – and help make it a reality as a donor or Park volunteer.
