Fences went up Wednesday morning on the Joe Rodota Trail between Dutton and Roseland Avenues in Santa Rosa, closing the trail to the public and blocking off an encampment of homeless men and women who were cleared from the area. 

Earlier this week we talked with residents of the trail and homeless advocates. Wednesday we followed a few of the social service providers and public safety officers working to assist and move residents.

Felicity Gasser of the Sonoma County Community Development Commission explained who was working the trail Wednesday morning.
