Second meeting on reunification of Santa Rosa's Courthouse Square

Residents of Santa Rosa are concerned that the city plans to cut down up to 37 conifer trees, mostly redwood trees, some 60 feet tall and 14 feet in circumference, to make way for the Courthouse Square Reunification Project. A city staff report received Dec 31, 2015 says “TPW staff is currently soliciting bids from qualified tree removal companies to remove [initially] up to 23 trees, of which 11 are Coast Redwoods, 2 are Monterey Pines, 5 are Red Cedar, and 1 is a Coast Live Oak as well as a few ornamental trees…  It is important to note that a majority of the trees currently in the square will be removed at some point during the construction phase of the project.”

A second community input meeting will be held by the city on:
Saturday, January 9, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, at

19 Old Courthouse Square in Santa Rosa.

The public entrance for this community meeting is accessible on 3rd Street. Please try to attend this meeting and/or send an email to the Santa Rosa City Council at
