Advisory: Severe Fire Weather & Potential New Power Shutoff Event Forecast to Begin Saturday, 10/26 in Santa Rosa.

New PG&E Power Shutoff Event Probable Beginning this Saturday
Due to forecasted weather conditions, there is potential for another PG&E Power Shutoff event that would impact significant portions of Sonoma County, including the City of Santa Rosa. The timing for the potential shutoff begins Saturday starting as early as approximately 1:00 p.m. (10/26) through Monday (10/28), at which time the restoration process would then begin. Due to the intensity of the forecasted weather and the likelihood of damage to PG&E’s infrastructure, it is anticipated that the restoration process may take multiple days and power may be out for an extended time frame. Community members are urged to prepare now in the event of an extended outage lasting several days.

Use PG&E’s address lookup tool to enter your address in searchable map to determine whether you are impacted at psps.ss.pge.com
Additional PG&E updates can be found at pgealerts.com
During an extended PSPS or power outage, our ability to alert residents could be impacted. Learn about the use of Hi/Lo sirens for emergency alerting and preplan evacuation routes by visiting srcity.org/knowyourwaysout

Severe Fire Weather Forecast for Weekend
A Red Flag Warning is in effect from 8 p.m. Saturday (10/26) to 11 a.m. Monday (10/28) for the North Bay mountains, valleys, and coastlines and including all of the City of Santa Rosa. A High Wind Warning is also in effect.
The National Weather Service has indicated that this event looks to be the strongest since the 2017 North Bay Fires and a potentially historic event given the strength and duration of the winds.
Santa Rosa Fire and Police departments will have extra staffing in place through the duration of the weather event and potential power shutoff. The City’s Emergency Operation Center also remains activated.

Anticipated Traffic Signal Outages and Driver Safety
If PG&E implements a power shutoff this weekend, multiple intersections are expected to be without power. Due to traffic signal impacts caused by an outage, drivers are encouraged to stay home and stay off the roads as much as possible. If you must drive, please reduce speeds, drive with caution and treat all intersections without power as a 4-way stop, per state law. Based on information received from PG&E, the City anticipates a number of traffic signals to be nonfunctional during the shutoff. A list of intersections anticipated to be impacted is available at srcity.org/PSPSTrafficImpacts
Stop signs will be staged at intersections with the highest traffic volume and roadway speed to help remind drivers that they must stop at intersections where signals are out.

For up-to-date emergency information, visit srcity.org/emergency or call 2-1-1.

STAY SAFE EVERYONE!

Caritas Village is the Catholic Charities project that proposes to destroy all historic structures on the southern-most block of our historic district and replace them with a 3-story family and homeless drop-in center along with two structures up to 4-stories in height that will have 126 living units. The entire complex will have 54 parking spaces. The applicant will be presenting this project to the city’s Cultural Heritage Board and the Design Review Board this Wednesday, 10/16, at 4:30pm in the City Hall council chambers. This is a public meeting that residents can attend and speak if they wish. Comments can also be emailed to the city planner on this project: Kristinae Toomians at KToomians@srcity.org

CARNIVALS IN ST. ROSE NEIGHBORHOOD – 1903, 1904

In the early 1900’s the 2 blocks of land between 10th Street and College Avenue on the east side of the St. Rose Historic District were still undeveloped. The land was owned by the Cooper family who lived in a house at the corner of 10th and B Streets. Large open tracts of land being a rarity some 35 years after Santa Rosa was established, it came in handy when traveling carnivals came through town. Click here to read more…

EIR Scoping Mtg 2.6.19

Hi, All,

There is an EIR “scoping” meeting this coming Wednesday regarding the Caritas Village  project. This is a meeting where residents can give input on what they would like to see studied by the city before the project starts making its way through the city approval process. You can also request the city study mitigation measures and alternatives to the proposed project. ***This is the time to voice concerns regarding: size, density, parking, traffic, and loss of historical structures.***

Date: Wed., 2/6

Time: 6-7:30pm

Location: DeTurk Round Barn, 819 Donahue Street.

 

Details of the proposed Project (Caritas Village is two projects – Caritas Homes and Caritas Center):

CARITAS HOMES:

  • Structures/Density: 128 units with two residential structures (a mix of studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments.Units will be the equivalent of four-story buildings along all streets except along 7th Street
  • A projected 222 residents  would be added to the area.
  • Vehicular access would be from Morgan Street (Phase 1) and A Street (Phase 2).
  • Parking on the ground floor of each Caritas Homes building would provide 27 parking spaces per building for a total 54 spaces,
  • This project would also result in the demolition of 5-7 historic structures on the southern most block of the St. Rose Historic District.

Caritas Center:

  • Description: Caritas Center will centralize Catholic Charities’ services and programs currently on the site—the Family Support Center and the Homeless Services Center. The new location is the southern part of the block bordered by A Street and 6th Street.
  • Hours of operation: would remain the same as existing with 24-hour staffing, seven days a week. Participant Advocates would work in two shifts: 8 AM to 4 PM and 4 PM to 12 AM. Program Aides would also work the 12 AM to 8 AM shift.
  • The proposed size is approximately 46,587 square feet and would be three stories in height
  • A projected 132 family residents would occupy the up to 50 private family residence rooms.
  • The Center would generate 155 new employees, 441 new clients, and 327 other new program participants on an annual basis.
  • Additional Uses: The Center would provide outpatient physical and mental health services to children and adults along with The Nightingale Program which provides a place for homeless individuals to continue recovering when they are discharged from the hospital. Up to 20 additional residents would be added with the proposed Transitional Living Space (approximately 2,099 square feet) – The project would include transitional housing integrated with other social services and counseling programs.
  • Vehicular access would be from A Street or Morgan Street, with surface parking lots immediately north of the building.
  • Parking (73 Spaces): Zoning Ordinance requires one parking space for every 10 beds plus one parking space per staff person on duty for the emergency shelter use. The emergency shelter would have up to 200 beds, which would require 20 parking spaces. There would be three emergency shelter staff members on-site at any time, which would require three additional parking spaces. The Transitional Living Space would have up to 20 beds, which would require two more spaces. Thus, the total parking requirement for the residential portion of Caritas Center would be 25 parking spaces. The proposed Caritas Center would have 48 parking spaces including 7 compact spaces, and 2 accessible spaces.

If you can not make this meeting, comments can be submitted to:

  • Kristinae Toomians, Senior Planner: KToomians@srcity.org

Deadline for comments is: Friday, Feb. 22, 2019.
