What Does Rohnert Park Need?

You live here, what do you think our community needs?


With the November elections just around the corner, one big question for many residents of both Rohnert Park and Cotati is what will the future hold for our cities? During the last election budget issues and being fiscally responsible were important topics. But now with the Casino project as well as the SMART train project getting closer what else should we consider for our communities?

A few ideas that have floated around the patch from our local readers include:

  • Converting the old State Farm facility into a 'Downtown shopping area'
  • Upscale restaurants
  • More shopping options
  • A Brewery or Nightclub

Is there anything else our communities are missing that you would want to see? We want to hear your thoughts as to what we can use and why!

If Rohnert Park is serious about bring culture to the Friendly City, increase their tax base with the type of business that is going to stay, and wants a business that is going to either be wholly, or at least significantly, local, a brewery has the chance to be a great fit.

Excellent points Graham. I agree that a brewery is a good choice compared to a nightclub and as a good business option for its affect on the community.

NO nightclub please! Graham should join the council members for a better influence and represent us taxpayers.

Lilly, I see there is a new burger place by Olivers (not Sonic) but worth a try ... it would be nice if that Patch highlighted more local / family owned businesses .... and I agree, the LAST thing we need is another bar / pub or nightclub. The Friendly City needs to focus on attracting and keeping young families not College kids.

I agree with RC.
