Project Background

On January 12, 2022, the Santa Rosa City Council voted unanimously to approve the purchase of a six-acre site for the Hearn Community Hub. The site is located on the south side of the Hearn Avenue and Dutton Avenue intersection. The purchase of this property allows the City to move forward on plans for the future extension of Dutton Avenue and the Colgan Creek Multi-Use Path, and for multiple public uses, such as a fire station, a public library, a multicultural community center, and a public pool and recreation center. The property was selected in part due to its proximity to neighborhood schools and projected residential growth in the area. It will also provide flexibility to the participating organizations to grow and thrive with the community.

In 2022, staff from the City of Santa Rosa and the Sonoma County Library coordinated several opportunities to obtain input and to encourage public participation as we reimagine the possibilities of the Hearn Community hub multi-use site. This phase of the Project included a community needs assessment and engagement with community partners, public agencies, youth, and families to brainstorm and prioritize innovative and effective community investments that support positive, sustainable, and culturally relevant changes in the southwest Santa Rosa community.
