Request #19-850


I would like to get a copy of any existing property and house plans for address 1389 Velma Ave Santa Rosa, CA 95403. It is a 1951 house on a 1/4 acre lot. The planning department should have the property on file as it was retrieved before. In late 90's or early 2000's there was a neighborhood developed on the original property and the lot shrunk to 1/4 acre. I would like the newest plans please.

Thank you,

Stella Kay
