History Museum of Sonoma County
Event Description

 We have lost many parts of the historic fabric of Santa Rosa over the years and are currently facing challenges with housing, post-fire rebuilding and preservation. Urban planning is fraught with obstacles, but what if you could wave your wand, and envision what your ideal City of Santa Rosa could be?  Join us as our moderator, Michael Burch, asks the question, “what if?” to a group of architects and urban designers: Lois Fisher, Rick Theis, Warren Hedgpeth and Don Tomasi.
 
Michael Burch’s day job is owner and principal of ScottAG - An Environmental Graphic Design and Signage Design consultancy working around the US on a variety of project types. Michael moonlights as the Chair of the City of Santa Rosa Design Review Board.  
 
Don Tomasi is a 4th generation Sonoma County resident and a Principal at TLCD Architecture, whose work has been recognized by numerous local, regional and national awards. He’s been a long-time advocate for Santa Rosa’s downtown, initiated the conversion of the former AT&T building into the Museum on the Square, and is currently working on two key new downtown mixed-use projects.
 
Lois Fisher, CNU, LEED-AP and LEED-ND is an Urban Designer, adjunct faculty member at Sonoma State University, and the president of Fisher Town Design. Her firm specializes in designing and zoning for walkable downtowns and neighborhoods: her Theatre district project in downtown Petaluma is a very successful example.
 
Rick Theis is a vigorous advocate of Smart Growth, affordable housing, protection of the environment, and opposition to Big Box development. For the last four years he chaired Sonoma Academy’s building committee as it planned and constructed the Janet Durgin Guild and Commons that won an American Institute of Architects Top Ten Award for sustainable design excellence in 2018.
 
Warren Hedgpeth practiced architecture in Portland Oregon until moving to Santa Rosa. He founded Hedgpeth Architects in 1983. He is an Advocate for Community and Cultural Diversity and serves on the City of Santa Rosa Design Review Board.
