Local residents in the Burbank Ave. area are concerned about another “Burbank Ave. Subdivision” at 1400 Burbank Ave. It is to the south of Roseland Creek on the east side of Burbank Ave. It is a very big proposal for four parcels totaling 14.2 acres. A similar proposal for homes on Dutton Ave., near Hearn Ave., on 14.5 acres named Paseo Vista has three parks slated for onsite recreation but this proposal has none. Instead it is a proposal for a much denser project of 136 homes divided up into” 62 single-family units, 12 duets, and 64 multifamily units on one parcel.” Local neighbors to the project have appealed the prior approvals of the proposal. The project is up for discussion at an Appeal Hearing before the Santa Rosa Design Review Board.
Cautious because of COVID-19 the City is conducting “virtual” public meetings with streaming video and telephone options. There will be NO PUBLIC ALLOWED at the meeting on Thurs. June 4, 2020 at 4:30 pm. Instead it has been written concerned citizens may comment online, BUT BEFORE THE MEETING at https://www.srcity.org/designreview .
