The City of Santa Rosa has begun debuting a series of videos on the annexation of Roseland, called Welcome Roseland. Each clip answers a most frequently asked question about the annexation. Some questions include: “will my property taxes go up?” and, “do the taco trucks get to stay?”
“The Welcome Roseland videos are a way to engage residents in a creative, light-hearted manner,” says Caluha Barnes, Director of Community Engagement. “We receive many questions from the public about what impacts the annexation will have on those who live and work in Roseland. Our staff has been working to find new and different methods to getting information about the annexation out to the public.”
With the help of Culture Pop Films, the videos are available in both English and Spanish, and star youth and adults from Roseland and other parts of Santa Rosa. Staff from the Santa Rosa Police Department, Housing and Community Services, Office of Community Engagement, and Water Department also appear in some of the scenes.
The Welcome Roseland campaign will run through June 2017. Each week, the City will debut a new video, answering a new question about the annexation. Videos can be found on the following City social media sites:
