Santa Rosa Downtown/Station Area Specific Plan

The Santa Rosa Downtown Station Area Specific Plan (DSASP) is the blueprint for development and preservation in a 650-acre area at the heart of the city. Originally adopted in 2007, a key objective of the DSASP is to increase the number of residents and employees within walking distance of the SMART station; however, over the last 12 years only 100 housing units have been constructed downtown in spite of a booming Bay Area economy. Dyett & Bhatia is leading a comprehensive update to the Plan that will help remove barriers to development and help realize Downtown’s full potential, meeting the community’s housing and job needs in walkable settings, and enhancing local quality of life. The project involves extensive community engagement, a thoughtful approach to historic preservation, and preparation of a Water Supply Assessment.
