Roseland Fire Protection District Dissolution
Published: March 13, 2019
The board of directors of the
Roseland Fire Protection District initiated dissolution of the District because
the board determined that, after the annexation of the Roseland Area to the
City of Santa Rosa in 2017, the District did not have the operational or
financial capability to efficiently or effectively serve the only two areas
outside the City that remained in the District.
its meeting on February 6, 2019, the Sonoma Local Agency Formation Commission
approved the dissolution of the District and annexation of the two remaining
areas to the Rincon Valley Fire Protection District whose boundary is adjacent.
The annexation of this territory was approved as part of a larger change that
involves formation of a single fire district in the central portion of the
County. The Sonoma County Fire District, as proposed, would provide fire
protection and emergency services to territory currently in the Windsor,
Bennett Valley, and Rincon Valley Fire Protection Districts, and portions of
County Service Area No. 40 (Fire Services). The remaining areas of the Roseland
Fire Protection District would be included.
