 What makes the West End Neighborhood a great place to live? Our residents- because they create the community, get to know each other and spend time to improve and protect this wonderful place. Two recent meetings- our W. E. Fall Meeting and the Scoping meeting for the Jennings Ave. Crossing were well attended. PHOTOS


Nov 2013

Save our streets and open a safe bridge crossing for Jennings residents- Over 20 West End residents and Railroad Square business owners showed up to participate in the scoping meeting. There is overwhelming support that a bridge is the safest way to create a crossing at Jennings. Closing streets in one neighborhood to open a crossing in another- is bad a bad idea for many reasons. Show your support by 1) Signing petition 2) List your questions and concerns by Dec. 11th for EIR study to : City of S. R. Attn. Jessica Jones, Senior Planner Community Development Dept. 100 Santa Rosa Ave. Room 3, S. R. CA 95404
