October 9, 2017

As we wake this morning to the smoke and ash and take in the magnitude of damage this fire has brought upon our beautiful city, I hope we can each take moment to reach out to friends and neighbors—it is in these difficult times that we most need our community to hold us up.

This morning thousands of Santa Rosans are displaced in shelters or staying with friends and family.  Evacuation orders have been issued for residents of the following Santa Rosa neighborhoods due to approaching fires.  Residents need to heed evacuation orders. Evacuation means that you need to LEAVE IMMEDIATELY!

  • Cross Creek Road
  • Sky Farm Drive
  • Saint Andrews Drive
  • All residences north Fountaingrove Parkway
  • Montecito Heights
  • The Hopper Avenue Area West of Coffey Lane (Between Dennis Lane and Hopper Avenue to the north and south and Coffey Lane and Barnes Road to the east and west)
  • All residences east of Fulton Road, between Piner Road and Guerneville Road
  • Kaiser Permanente Hospital and Sutter Hospital have been evacuated

Residents who are displaced are being sheltered at:

SCHOOL CLOSURES: All Santa Rosa City School will be closed today, Monday, October 9, 2017

We would like to alert all our news media partners to direct the public to our emergency website at for up-to-the-minute information about evacuations, road closures and shelters.

If you can avoid getting on the roads, please stay in place as long as you are safe—many roads are congested with traffic. If you are fearful or need assistance, we are updating the City's emergency information page regularly at  The air is very smoky and difficult to breath so please stay indoors as much as possible until the air clears.  Please do not call 9-1-1 unless you are reporting an active fire.

We have declared these fires as Local Emergency and activated our Emergency Operations Center at midnight last night, and since then City personnel have been working tirelessly to respond to the needs of our community.

I want to bring this to your attention from a community outreach/ community trust standpoint. 

This project is in Homestead. 
It is listed as being in Tam Valley. 

This does not instill confidence that the County is operating in good faith with the Homestead community. 

Please do what you can to remedy this situation. 

Best Regards,

Call to Action : Comment Period for National Monuments Started 5/12 - some end on the 27th!

Call to Action : Protect our National Monuments! Comment Period Opened May12

You may have heard that the current administration is about to remove regulations that protect our National Monuments. 
Please comment to keep these regulations in place. Some of these comment periods are only fifteen days and the clock started ticking May 12th.
Without regulations, many beautiful places would be destroyed. These regulations are often the only safeguards against complete plundering of our national treasures.
Unfortunately, many of us are so focused on our work and our families, we often don't notice what is happening around us.

If we don't speak up to protect our sacred places, we will lose them.

Thanks in advance for taking a few moments to comment. The more comments, the better our chances of protecting these lands.

Future generations are counting on our stewardship. Please comment now.
Please share with your networks.

Call to Action : DeVos Confirmation

In case you have not been following the DeVos hearings, the vote to confirm Betsy DeVos as Sec of Education has been delayed.
The hearing of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions will now be held at 10 a.m. Jan. 31, according to an advisory from the committee.
And now to act (esp my ME, GA, NC and SC friends)!
Betsy DeVos is up for confirmation as U.S. Education Secretary, and many, many educators have expressed strongly that she is not qualified to ensure quality childrens' education in this country. If you need more information, please do some research.
At least THREE Senators need to change their votes to prevent this from happening.
Please consider calling one of the following Republican Senators (key in the confirmation vote) to express your opinion on the appointment. At least 3 of these need to be convinced in order to block DeVos' nomination. Don't email.
Don't tweet.
Don't complain on Facebook.
Call them!
If you live in one of the states represented below, PLEASE call YOUR Senator, If you don't, pick one and call him/her:
