Giving the people of the Southern Sonoma Valley an organized voice in the changes that are taking place as the valley develops. Past projects include Sears Point Raceway expansion, stop SMART from storing LPG Tankers, Squashed a potential Amazon warehouse with constant traffic from Amazon vehicles and employee cars.
We want to engage you in the issues that concern you, here in the Southern Sonoma Valley. Because You are the Voice of the Southern Sonoma Valley.
Mobilize Sonoma was born to be a tool for the people of lower Schellville to be able to more fully participate in planning and development decisions taking place in our end of the valley.
We have taken on the original “Tanker’s Out” campaign to stop storing flamable LPG rail cars at the foot of 8th Street, the possible Amazon warehouse over development on that site, and now we are again taking on the possibility of SMART storing 160 tanker cars loaded with LPG gas.
We work thru active citizen participation and wide and deep knowledge of the planning process.
We will use people pressure and our land-use knowledge to protect our area from overdevelopment, rampant environmental dangers and possible hazards.
Please join us in our campaigns.
Two years ago we worked with you and with SMART to convince the SMART Board that storing hazardous tankers with explosive LPG gas on unstable soil in the storage yard was not in SMART’s best interest, nor was it in the best interest of the local area. You helped us with letter and attending meetings to let the Board know that potentially blowing up the southern end of Sonoma Valley was not in their best interest, nor was it in ours!
Storing the tankers in that same area is on the Board’s agenda again. We will be watching and asking for your help.

Hey Neighbors. Bad news! The Tanker storage yard is back on the SMART agenda! We thought when the Board voted two years ago to no longer store tankers loaded with dangerous and explosive LPG in the storage yard at the end of 8th Street that we could relax and live safely in our homes and businesses! BUT NO! It’s B-A-A-A-CK!
Seems like a breach of faith.
In case you weren’t around or don’t remember, the blast zone for these tankers, should just one explode, is a mile radius, not to mention the ongoing fire from the blast and all the environmental issues from using fire fighting chemicals in delicate and fragile protected bay lands. In that mile radius is potentially the Sanitation Plant, the Firehouse and many residences and businesses. A disaster if it happens.
