Southeast Greenway Campaign Update
Thea Hensel, a founding member of the Southeast Greenway Campaign and Co-Chair of the organization for the past 9 years, will be our speaker on March 8th. She will bring us up to date on the progress being made through community input and Planning Commission meetings.
Few projects have been in discussion longer than this one. Approximately 1,400 households live within ¼ mile, and 5,000 households are within 1 mile of the Greenway. Many destinations including schools, shopping centers, medical facilities, and places of worship are within walkable/bikable distance from the Greenway. Invite your friends to come and learn what the future may bring for this significant undeveloped parcel in the heart of Santa Rosa.
Thea is a 2011 Fellow of the Leadership Institute for Ecology and the Economy, was a Board member of the Sonoma County Forum, works on the grant committee for Impact-100 and has resided in a cohousing community for the past 11 years.
Before retiring, Thea had a long career in sales with the Wrangler Jeans Company, taught school for five years, and was an employment recruiter in the biotech industry. She has a BS from State University of New York, Oneonta, a Masters in Education from NYU and an HR certificate from SRJC. She enjoys traveling with her adult daughter who teaches in the Bay Area, hiking, music, swimming and sharing all things food, wine and the arts with friends.
Thea comments, “It brings me great joy to work with dedicated people in this shared vision of a Greenway for Santa Rosa.”
