Fri., Aug 5th – Santa Rosa Avenue through Courthouse Square to Close!
No notice to residents from the city and nothing posted on the city’s website, but it appears (based on a few signs on Mendocino Avenue) the city will be closing Courthouse Square to through traffic starting August 5. That means southbound traffic crossing College Avenue will be directed to alternate routes, one them through our neighborhood on Healdsburg and B Streets. BE PREPARED for a LOT more traffic in this area. Pedestrians and cyclists should be extra cautious. Please stay safe.
