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.

Beginning Wednesday, May 30, 2018, the County of Sonoma in collaboration with the City of Santa Rosa will temporarily close the section of the Joe Rodota Trail (JRT) from Roseland Avenue to Dutton Avenue to remove unlawful encampments and reestablish a safe and clean environment for all trail visitors. The effort is anticipated to last two days, after which the County will reopen the closed section of the JRT for recreational trail use.

Sonoma County Department of Health Services convened a collaborative of community partners under the South Santa Rosa HEAL Zone Project, which has been funded since 2007 by grants from Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefit Program. Local organizations have joined the partnership to help improve health in underserved areas. Programs aimed at reducing sugar-sweetened beverage consumption among Southwest Santa Rosa residents ultimately work to address health risks associated with unhealthy weight.

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.

Goat Ropers rolled through Roseland in the night and rustled out two goats recently donated to the Bayer Farm project run by Land Paths.

School is out and Roseland’s streets will be more active during daytime with children rushing about on foot and bicycles. Please be careful and slow down for our youth.

Loyal volunteer Judy Elliott has taken on the task of locating and recording new PSAs for the station. Her work in finding educational matter—much of it in Spanish—earned her the unofficial title of PSA Czar.

Alicia Sanchez, president of KBBF’s board of directors, reports that, due to the hard work of KBBF’s board, the volunteers, and the community of listeners and supporters, there is a new agreement with the City of Santa Rosa that will keep the station’s property out of foreclosure.
