Coffey Strong Organizes to Help Displaced Residents, and Santa Rosa Tackles Rebuilding and New Building
Chris Coursey, Santa Rosa’s mayor is fond of saying that city officials need to walk and chew gum at the same time. That is, they must tackle rebuilding along with necessary housing growth.
In the wake of the October fires in Santa Rosa, residents of the Coffey Park neighborhood have organized. The group Coffey Strong now numbers nearly 1000 residents who act collectively to pool information and save money. Jeff Okrepkie represented the group on a recent edition of KQED’s Forum with Michael Krasny.
We also hear from David Guhin, director of Planning and Economic Development for Santa Rosa who spoke about rebuilding the city.
