Sonoma County Supervisors are hoping that new buyers interested in the Chanate Road property will come forward. The Board decided to put the property up for sale again, either as smaller parcels or as a whole. The property has been vacant since Sutter moved to their new campus in 2014. It costs the county roughly $800-thousand a year to maintain the property. A prior proposed sale to developer Bill Gallaher fell through because the county did not perform an environmental review of the property. Any sale will also need to be approved by the City of Santa Rosa.
