Street Stories: Santa Rosa
For years, insufficient funding has caused fewer streets to be repaved in California, and what limited funding that does exist, has been spent mostly on pothole repair. In the City of Santa Rosa, which has one of the most extensive street systems in Northern California, there is a backlog of 200 to 250 million dollars in needed work. The state restored some of that funding this year, nearly doubling Santa Rosa’s street budget. Prop 6 in November, would take it away.
