Benjamin Wickham, Affordable Housing Director – Sonoma County Community Development Commission joins me on today’s show to discuss the plans in motion for the long anticipated Roseland Village Project.
Beginning in 2005, through a series of community meetings, a vision was created for the future of the Sebastopol Road Corridor. Part of this vision was for the development of a neighborhood center, housing, a plaza and mercado where the Roseland Village shopping center is currently sited. In 2007, the Sebastopol Road Urban Vision Plan, which reflected the community vision developed during these meetings, was adopted by both the Santa Rosa City Council and the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. The Commission is working with the nonprofit MidPen Housing to bring this vision to realization.
Mr Wickham is also overseeing the Roseland Brownfield Revitalization Project and will fill us in on that project as well.
The Roseland Brownfield Revitalization Project
In 2016 the Community Development Commission was awarded a $392,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency to conduct critical environmental studies on at least 18 different sites along the Sebastopol Road Corridor and surrounding Roseland neighborhood.
