I don't know the website for those statistics, I'll see if I can find it. But I did want to mention, that there are some beautiful homes on that street with large parcels and can see why you like the area. ... more

There is somewhat of a gang problem in the area, but it's not like COPS or a bad 80's movie. It's not as though there are carjackings and crack dealers working the corners. Well, there probably are crack dealer corners -- but they're at least subtle. No different than any 100K+ city with poorer neighborhoods.

I don't think there's any neighborhood in Santa Rosa I would be frightened to walk through solo at midnight. Some I'd pay (far) more attention than others, but none that I'd say "No way do I walk to the store!" Many of the poorer neighborhoods have a far greater sense of community than the more affluent.

Truth be known and at the risk of failing my PC tests, there's a significant migrant/Latino community in the area -- a significant portion near or below the poverty level. This is primarily where you'll find the issues you've heard of. Should note this is gang-on-gang stuff (namely those who affiliate themselves with Northern vs. Southern Mexican gangs). Joe Public isn't really at risk of street crime. Santa Rosa has somewhat evolved into a haves and have-nots area. Just about anything south and slightly north of Hwy 12 (a few stretches of newer development in southwest excluded) is prone to issues. The far northwest corner of the area and the northeast area -- including all of Bennett valley -- does not have the high-density living that facilitates these issues.

If you're truly concerned about Santa Rosa itself, the track home areas of Windsor and virtually all of Rohnert Park (parts of "A" and "B" section excluded) are the definition of suburbia (translated: safe, yet devoid of culture) and a safe bet.

If you view the town as intersected by Hwy 101 and Hwy 12 created four quardrants, avoid the SE quarter almost entirely (lots of newly developed units in there with some nice pockets, but area as a whole has issues). Avoid the SW corner near the 101 (further west is fine). The upper half of the NW corner is fine, and most of the NE corner is fine above 4th Street.

That's just a general guide. If you find something specific you're interested in, look for stats for that area.

Paul, You can always check with the police department to see what if any activities are happening in the surround neighborhoods. They could possibly spread into this area.

Deborah Byrne answered:
In a city as large as Santa Rosa, crime is not unheard of. By and large it feels safe and walking around isn't a problem. There are different crime rates in different areas of town, and the different neighborhoods have different 'feels' about them. ... more
