Thanks be given to close to 20 helpful 10th graders from Roseland University Prep High School who spent time on Weds. October 16 during their Biology class doing some outdoor study time at the Roseland NeighborWood between Burbank Ave. and McMinn Ave. Another Thanks be given for the new crosswalk signal light recently installed by Santa Rosa at the intersection of Burbank Ave. at Hearn Ave. leading into Southwest Community Park where the bus stop "turn around" is also located. One more Thanks be given along with a correction from last month's column. Daniel Chapparo from Roseland has again volunteered for and been reappointed to the Community Advisory Board to represent Southwest Santa Rosa residents. Thanks should also be given for the recent rebuilding of Rose Ave. running east from Stony Pt. Rd. to Burbank Ave. and the western block of Sunset Ave. Thanks be given to Lynda Hopkins who also serves as a Director of the Sonoma County Open Space District which has paid millions of taxpayer's dollars to secure the 19.5 acre NeighborWood from development.

Make a Difference Day for Roseland is Sunday October 27 at 10 pm in Roseland Neighbor Wood across from Roseland Creek Elementary School on Burbank Ave. Please come out to help keep the area clean to make it inviting for Roseland youth. The Green Space desired by the public is nowhere to be seen yet. While murals are an inspiring use of time and talent for our young people it is also time for there to be a “community conversation” about how to let the young people of our community have a real voice in the decision making process. There is an election next year for a NEW Santa Rosa City Council member to represent Roseland and South Park in what is termed District 1. Perhaps some young Roseland residents will step up to the fight. Until then this reporter has decided to enter the race for the city council seat so there will at least be discussions of the historical disadvantages placed on Roseland by local government decisions.

The Sonoma County Library has signed a six-year lease on a building at 470 Sebastopol Road, across the street from the current temporary library. Of importance to Roseland residents and local library users he noted, “The new library will have abundant parking, heating, air conditioning and a roof that doesn't leak — all things the current library lacks.”

With July 4th upon us and summer weather causing folks to seek relief from the heat, now is a good time to wade in local creeks still wet from winter storms. It is also time for leaving on vacations for some. But if you are going to be in Roseland for the summer take some walks around the neighborhoods and enjoy the shade trees. Check out the beauty of the Roseland NeighborWood also.
