Several dozen homes are going up in the Coffey Park area of Santa Rosa which was devastated by the Tubbs Fire last October. The Press Democrat reports as of April 20th, 50 homes were going up in the northwest Santa Rosa neighborhood, thirty more than a month before. There are still many empty lots with blackened land and trees. Four people died in the Tubbs Fire and 1,200 homes were destroyed. The newspaper reports there are many survivors who are still trying to deal with their insurance claims, but volunteers are still holding neighborhood support group meetings. There’s also a damaged park in the middle of the neighborhood the city’s public works director says there’s still debris there that needs cleaning and that park will be rebuilt from scratch, which may include a public restroom and dog park.
