displaced

The County of Sonoma and City of Santa Rosa are working with state and federal partners to provide safe, immediate, transitional, and long-term housing to assist residents who were displaced by the recent tragic fires and stabilize the immediate housing crisis faced by residents. It is estimated that nearly 5,000 residential units were destroyed in the fires. At their meeting today, the Board of Supervisors approved leasing 80 existing Recreational Vehicle (RV) spaces at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds to house Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Temporary Housing Units.

California State Parks announced today that it is opening campsites at Sonoma Coast State Park and Salt Point State Park to residents affected by Northern California fires. 

Although not an official evacuation site, campsites will be open to meet the temporary immediate needs of displaced residents. 

Campsites will be available at Bodega Dunes Campground and Wrights Beach within Sonoma Coast State Park and Woodside Campground within Salt Point State Park. Services available at these sites include showers, bathrooms, drinking water and trash bins.
