Please Note:  
  • The information on this page is specific to parcels within the Santa Rosa City limits that are required to complete a debris removal program due to one or more primary / secondary dwellings and / or commercial industrial units that were completely destroyed in the October 2017 fire disaster.  Damaged properties are not included in the information on this page.

Residential Debris Removal Progress

The Chart in Figure A illustrates which debris removal program property owners elected to use for cleanup of their properties. An "ROE" (Right-of-Entry) form was required for participation in the government-operated program. A Santa Rosa Fire Cleanup application was required for those who selected their own contractor for the "Private" cleanup program.

Temporary Housing Permits

To help residents through the recovery process, the City has created new policies around temporary housing, including:
  • Allowing residents to live in temporary housing units, such as manufactured, tiny homes, and RVs, on their properties while rebuilding
  • Allowing residents to build detached accessory dwelling units to live in while they are rebuilding their main residence and offering incentives for such units
