If you live in Santa Rosa, you probably know that chunks of land there–dominated by the 620 acres of the Roseland neighborhood–are not, in fact, part of the city; they are islands.

These unincorporated areas are served by a patchwork of agencies providing municipal services. As Steve Mencher reports, that problem may soon be solved if Roseland and four other nearby islands come under the city’s wing through annexation.
