The Santa Rosa City Council unanimously approved the latest redesign of the Museum on the Square project with little discussion Tuesday.
Santa Rosa has been cleared to sell the former AT&T building downtown to a developer with long-delayed plans to transform the concrete monolith into a modern, glass-clad office building.
A 1906 farmhouse, one of the last on Petaluma’s suburban east side, was officially declared a local landmark Monday, affording the home built by Danish immigrants a place in the city’s future.
First it lost its top five stories. Now Santa Rosa’s Museum on the Square project has lost its museum. The Sonoma County Museum announced Tuesday it was backing out of the long-delayed effort to renovate the former AT&T building downtown.

Santa Rosa developer Hugh Futrell is planning a six-story downtown apartment building for 140 low-income seniors.
The $30 million project on Fourth Street near Brookwood Avenue will include a medical center and other services for seniors on the first floor, features Futrell says are crucial for an aging population.
A downtown developer is downsizing his plans for the former AT&T building in Santa Rosa because he’s under the gun to get the long-delayed project moving this summer.

Workers using heavy machinery began demolishing an aging Humboldt Street office building this week to make way for a five-story structure with low-income apartments above commercial space. Construction on what will be one of the largest new buildings in Santa Rosa in several years is expected to get under way later this month and be ready for occupancy about a year later, developer Hugh Futrell said.
