Buying Time – WSCUHSD

When time ran out at the November 18 board meeting, the West Sonoma County Union High School District scheduled a special meeting for November 23. Another marathon meeting covered three agenda items. Originally, it was to be one item – a discussion about Supervisor Lynda Hopkin’s proposed Transit Occupancy Tax (TOT). Then it was two, as the board moved the consolidation decision from the eighteenth to the twenty third. Then it became three. 

SSU breaks ground on renovation of Stevenson Hall

After more than 10 years of planning, Sonoma State University is proud to announce the groundbreaking of the Stevenson Hall Renovation Project, which is designed to refresh the building into a 21st century academic learning environment and will provide educational and meeting spaces. Stevenson Hall has played such a vital role in the history of the university, including being the first building constructed on campus. We look forward to reopening its doors in Fall 2022, so it may continue to positively serve our campus community.
