1) This project proposes to demolish the existing old General Hospital (currently housing the Catholic Charities family services), three historic residential buildings, and one historic apartment building. The St. Rose District was designated an historic district in 1990 by the City of Santa Rosa. Historic designation means that our neighborhood is recognized by the City as a key component of the community’s architectural heritage. Historic designation generally controls the size, quality, and scale of new construction in the district and also prohibits demolition of “contributing” structures, thus protecting the character and quality of the area.

2) Caritas Center: Construct a 41,290-square- foot, three-story building at the southeast corner of A and Sixth Streets, which will comprise of a 23,206-square-foot emergency housing shelter for up to 52 families, a 6,071-square-foot daycare center, 2,300-square-feet of transitional housing, and 9,713-square-feet of ancillary service/medical facilities (Caritas Center). Occupancy of this building will be upwards of 200 residents plus daily walk-in clients and staff. It is unclear how much on-site parking will be available to accommodate residents, staff, and client parking. It is unclear what security, if any, will be provided. 

3) Caritas Apartments Phase 1 (A on map): Construct a 69,100-square-foot, four-story building with 91 residential apartment units along project site frontage of Morgan Street and the southeast corner of Morgan and Seventh Streets. Occupancy of these 91 apartments could reach close to 200 people (2/unit). It is unclear how much on-site parking will be available to accommodate residents of these units and their guests.

4)  Caritas Apartments  Phase 2(B on map): Construct a 47,000-square-foot, four story building with 48 residential apartment units along the project site frontage of A Street and the southwest corner of A and Seventh Streets. Occupancy of these 48 apartments could reach 100 people (2/unit). It is unclear how much on-site parking will be available to accommodate residents of these units and their guests.

Info on historic structures Catholic Charities wants to destroy:

608 Morgan Street: Casa Del Sol Apartments built in the 1920’s. Owned by Pietro and Guiseppina Girolo. Pietro and Guiseppina lived with their family in the West End district.
