SANTA ROSA ROSELAND LIONS CLUB Building (Pictured above, floorplan on the right) is
ready to be moved onto it's new location: 3470 Santa Rosa Ave., in Santa Rosa, CA 95407.
We cannot Thank our New Sponsor enough for allowing us the use of the Land for our Building Project.
All our Club has to do is to get our Modular Building moved onto it's NEW site & remodel a very small parts of the building. Most Permits fees are paid, volunteer Architect put the Plans together & we are ready & waiting to start on construction.
Once we receive our approved building permit in hand, we will be allowed to move our modular units onto it's new site. Earlier this year, our County of Santa Rosa Planning Dept. surprised us with the current Endangered Salamander Issue in Santa Rosa.
FIRST SURPRISE: Even though we have NO Salamanders on our property, we were told by County Permit Dept. that we must Mitigate as all new construction must help support the Salamander Habitats, this is a new Law we were informed in 2019 NOW in Sonoma County. Please know that our plans even with no Salamanders issues we have planned a Salamander friendly environment just in case they decide to visit us in years to come.
Our Club's Biologist informed us that the Mitigation fee will be in the $150,000.00 range for our building project, it's confirmed now. For a small club, it was quite a shock. We will need to find Sponsors and fund-raise also reach out to our community to request all to please donate what you can, as every dollar will help. Together we can & will succeed.
SECOND SURPRISE: BIG shocking information we received was that , we must take care of the Mitigation cost BEFORE the County Permit for our construction will be released to our Club so we can start construction. We were also told that we are still not allowed to move our modular units onto our Club's grounds until the fee for Salamander Habitat cost of $150,000.00 is paid in full.
All this time while working with County for our Club's building permit, we have had to pay storage for our modular units cost is $600.00 per month for the past 3 years. Before that, we had an in-kind donor who took care of the storage fee for our club. This extra cost is a huge burden for our small club.
Here we have a 3.1 acre land and we have to pay to store our Modular units elsewhere where we have to pay because County won't allow our Club to move our Modular building onto our 3,1 Acre empty site. It doesn't make sense we know, but it is what it is as the County has refused our numerous requests. We were informed that there can be no exceptions. So we have to keep on paying to store our Modular Units elsewhere as those are their rules.
We NOW have to reach out to our community, friends, family & world if necessary for help, businesses and individuals to help by donating whatever all can afford, any donation $5. or more would be appreciated as we need to help our club help our community CHILDREN, ADULTS, SENIORS & VETERANS.

Some of our volunteers have worked on this project for the past 33+ years, we are at the home stretch and need a little help to get us over this hurdle. There is a huge need for a resource center where one can keep in contact or meet with to obtain help as needed for those in need of our support. We will be there for them and will do the best we can to help lead all in the right direction as to where they can Find the help they need in our building or elsewhere. We look forward to offering all our programs and being there to help as needed.
Lets not forget that our children of today will be our leaders of tomorrow. We should all help best we can when we can.

100% of donations received for our Club's Building Project to help the community will be used for the Club's Club-House & Resource Center building project only. Our goal is to complete the project this Summer in year 2019. With help from a Sponsor, we now have a parcel in place waiting for our building. Our Sponsor & Members are all excited as this project is finally going to happen. With our generous sponsor allowing our Club the use of the land for our building project, we can finally move forward to help those in need. We need you to help us help our community.
