The City of Santa Rosa is no longer restricting access for residents in Journey’s End Mobile Home Park
Today, the City of Santa Rosa is no longer restricting access for residents to Journey’s End Mobile Home Park, located at 3575 Mendocino Avenue, now that the previously-found asbestos has been mitigated.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) contacted the Santa Rosa Fire Department (SRFD) this morning and advised staff that the asbestos has been cleaned ahead of schedule and they have completed their sampling.
The asbestos was isolated to an area where the communal laundry room was located which was destroyed in the fire. Although the restricted access to the mobile home park has been lifted by the City of Santa Rosa, the structures in the mobile home park remain uninhabitable due to a lack of utilities.
Last week, the EPA contacted SRFD regarding the presence of asbestos in Journey’s End Mobile Home Park. Based on the information, the City of Santa Rosa restricted access to the mobile home park until the EPA could complete their evaluation, sampling and any associated cleanup needs.
