[ARCHIVED] Public Structures Demolition

The Capital Improvement Projects division of Transportation and Public Works (TPW) has been working with the following City departments; Santa Rosa Water, Police, Transportation and Public Works, and Recreation and Parks, to deliver a construction contract to perform hazardous material abatement and demolition of select City structures. All of the selected structures are vacant and many dilapidated. City departments would like to expand the use of their existing parcels, however the demolition of structures is necessary prior to gaining beneficial use.

The City has identified for demolition 32 vacant structures on 14 City-owned parcels located within and outside the city limits. The selected structures include vacant commercial buildings, vacant residential structures, park maintenance buildings, and a public restroom. Demolition of these existing structures will allow for alternative and expanded use of City-owned land while also reducing liability the City retains by leaving these structures unmaintained and vacant.

Demolition of structures will be accomplished by a combination of contract work and City crews. Initial building demolition preparations will begin in late May when City crews de-energize the structures.

The City intends to demolish structures at sites listed below in the 2019 calendar year.

Project Locations:

  • Doyle Park  (three storage buildings, concession stand, ‘log cabin’)
  • Galvin Park  (Tennis assoc./park storage bldg.)
  • Julliard Park  (public restroom)
  • Howarth Park  (vacant caretakers’ residence)
  • Roseland Creek Park (four vacant residences and various outbuildings)
  • 2810 4th Street - Old Liquor Store
  • 952 Sonoma Ave
  • 7630 & 7650 Lakeville Hwy
  • 4090 Walker Rd
  • 4099 Walker Rd
  • 1595 Meadow Ln
