Two new items of Neighborhood interest:

Break in at Western Farm Saturday Night.  Utz-  SRPD the Police Dog takes care of business.

On Saturday, April 17, 2010, at approximately 10:40 p.m., Santa Rosa Police Officers responded to Western Farms Center on West 7th Street for a silent alarm. Officers arrived and established a perimeter at which time officers saw movement inside the upstairs office area.  Shortly thereafter, officers entered the business with the assistance of a police K9, Utz. Once at the stairwell, the officer provided notification to anyone upstairs that a police K9 was going to be deployed. The suspect, Michael Iervolino, an 18 year old Santa Rosa resident, immediately complied and was taken into custody without incident. Iervolino was subsequently booked into the Sonoma County Jail for Burglary.

On April 19th, the City Manager approved a  2nd Medical Cannabis Dispensary Permit in NW Santa Rosa. The City of Santa Rosa that, by ordinance only allows 2 medical marijuana facilities within the City, has just approved the second facilty.  It will be located at 1061 North Dutton Ave. – right next to homes.  It is also located within 2 miles of the only other location which is also located in NW Santa Rosa.  This facility was approved in spite of many letters from residents who cited existing problems in the area due to an over concentration of services.
