Santa Rosa was in the midst of a housing crisis even before the devastating Tubbs fire destroyed 5 percent of the city’s housing stock — around 2,900 homes. On the first anniversary of the North Bay fires, Forum broadcasts live from Santa Rosa’s Luther Burbank Center for the Arts to discuss the city’s rebuilding efforts and the challenge of balancing the need for more affordable housing with concerns about building in potential fire zones.
