Deer Creek Village will be one of Petaluma's premiere mixed use centers boasting a unique combination of shopping and office space, as well as recreational opportunities that include trails, exercise stations and outdoor dining areas adjacent to a restored creek and wetland area.
The project promises over 800 new jobs and will generate hundreds of thousands of dollars for critical public services, while emphasizing exceptional detail to fine architecture and landscaping designs, and environmentally friendly and energy efficient features – all of which will have lasting benefits to the community.
Welcome Back Friedman's!
Thirty-seven years after closing shop in Petaluma, Friedman's Home Improvement is finally returning! On May 2nd, the Friedman family was joined by local business and community leaders for a groundbreaking ceremony and reception!
Again, welcome back Friedman's!
Thank you for Supporting Deer Creek Village!
On behalf of Merlone Geier Partners and Friedman’s, we would like to thank the Petaluma community for their overwhelming support of the Deer Creek Village shopping center project and future home of Friedman’s Home Improvement store.
We are so eager to put people to work that we will be pulling building permits in the coming months in order to begin construction on the Friedman’s store in the first months of 2013.
While the community at-large has always been accepting of the project, we did face some extraordinary challenges. However, as we begin construction, we are confident that even those who opposed the development will come to recognize the benefits of a project that promises jobs, tax revenue and Friedman’s return to a community that was once its home.
We owe a special thanks to all the community leaders and hundreds of project supporters who championed the project and attended all the public hearings.
In particular, had it not been for the support of City Council Members Mike Healy, Gabe Kearney, Chris Albertson and Mike Harris, the community would not have the benefit of a local home improvement store and over 800 jobs coming to Petaluma.
We look forward to seeing the community and our future neighbors at the project’s groundbreaking ceremony! Thank you again for your support.
