Exciting 2014 Research Project by SRHS Students

Santa Rosa High School students and their teachers, Art Horner, Dave Franzman, John Cortopassi and Terry Swehla are involved in a great project researching the history of older homes in Santa Rosa’s eight preservation districts: Burbank Gardens, Cherry Street, McDonald, Olive Park, Railroad Square, Ridgway, St. Rose, and the West End. Saturday, the Sonoma County Library provided them with an overview of the resources available at their Sonoma County History and Genealogy Library (i.e. maps, city directories, surveys, clipping files, photographs, etc.) that will be key to their success in documenting individual houses within the preservation districts.  Students will be touring the St. Rose neighborhood throughout the year and may contact you about your home if it is one of the homes selected for their research project. Please join me in welcoming them to our neighborhood!

Public Art Survey

You can help shape the future of public art in Santa Rosa by taking the City’s survey. Your responses will help them to better understand your thoughts on public art, where public art would have a strong impact in Santa Rosa, and how public art can create a sense of community, pride, and civic engagement. The results will help shape the recommendations in the Santa Rosa Public Art Master Plan.
