A Good partnership has been formed with Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation and Roseland School District. They have been able to secure funding together which has been used for tree planting and riparian corridor restoration along Roseland Creek as it runs through school district property west of Burbank Ave. A Bad situation occurred recently when the city of Santa Rosa staff in the Recreation and Parks Dept. invited over 9000 people from Southwest Santa Rosa to a free dinner in the Wright School District and only approximately 50 people came. The city no longer wants to think of Roseland as a separate place.

On 2 Jan. 2020, The Boys and Girls Club previewed a proposed brand new 23,600 square foot building to be built just off Sebastopol Rd. On Tues. Jan 14, 2020, the Roseland NeighborWood got a potential boost for a “Natural Park” as the Santa Rosa City Council “continued” a Public Hearing by moving to consider a local Roseland Community generated “Ideal Plan”. Other good news is the new Roseland Library should be available for opening in June 2020. If this is the case the current large library facility in the existing Dollar Store building will close. Some local residents are proposing a “going away” party for the site which has been so helpful to many people over the years as a library and “community center”

This new year  WE  residents should take heart. Let’s do  OURBEST  to overcome the past and look to the future with goals  WE set by telling the government what WE  want in no uncertain terms. Start by contacting your elected officials. A polite conversation can help you keep track of your proposal. A good place to start helping Roseland is by applying for a  Community Improvement Grant NeighborFest Program by Jan. 6, 2020to Santa Rosa. Applications can be done online at

You can read it here: Comments may be directed to the attention of Ms. Jen Santos at 55 Stony Point Road, Santa Rosa, CA  Many Roseland residents are concerned the city has discriminated against Roseland in this process while serving the residents of eastern Santa Rosa better in regards to park planning.
