Roseland DUO: Disadvantaged, Underserved, Over-burdened (DOU) Roselandhas had this unexpected blessing by the presence of the branch of Sonoma County Library operating at 779 Sebastopol Rd for close to two and a half years now. Now there are many local residents concerned by what may happen when the branch closes for a proposed housing development to be built on the western 7 acres of the shopping center site.

Some Roseland residents, and other supporters of Roseland, have told Roseland Review they believe racism rules Roseland. They wish to remain anonymous, but I believe they are correct, so I stand behind this forum for their views to be aired and shared here. But first, here is some good news to share before going deeper into that story. This month’s column will remind readers of “Make a Difference Day” to be held on Saturday October 27th in Roseland at the Roseland Neighbor Wood.

With an ongoing “housing crisis” of lack of housing it is sad this Roseland resident was forced out onto the streets by the city. It is ironic because now the city of Santa Rosa will be putting tax increase Ballot Initiatives on the November Ballot to pay for “new” affordable housing to be built. This is while the city has been holding onto houses in Roseland already bought by Sonoma County taxpayers and keeping them empty. So the taxpayers paid “Top Dollar” for houses which the city has now claimed are “surplus” and has told the public the city will demolish the houses. Wasteful!

It’s about cars, drivers, and music. Although the lowrider lifestyle begins and ends with the wheels, there’s lots of room for photo ops, movies, bands, magazines, street parties, music, and even fashion.
