For over 35 years, many citizens have felt that downtown Santa Rosa has been divided by monolith called the Santa Rosa Plaza. Recently, the mall owner/manager Simon Property Group (aka the largest real estate company in the U.S.) while going through the City’s Design review process completely refuses to improve the situation in anyway. Read Gaye LeBaron’s fascinating look at the long running, infamous debate.
