The Veterans Memorial Buildings and Community Center Building have been serving residents of Sonoma County for a variety of purposes since their construction following World War II.
The 8 buildings vary in size from 5,420 square feet in Cotati to 45,650 square feet in Santa Rosa, for a total floor area of 137,778 square feet.
The buildings typically have a large auditorium, meeting rooms, kitchen, and support spaces with offices, however, each building is unique:
- Guerneville shares the building with the Sheriff's Substation;
- Cloverdale has a 100,000 gallon public swimming pool;
- Sonoma is adjacent to a Memorial Cemetery,
- while Cotati and Sebastopol are adjacent to city parks.
Most of the buildings were constructed between 1950 and 1961. Guerneville is an older building that was acquired by the County in 1948.
Management and Operations
Responsibility for management of the buildings is shared between the County and 3rd party agencies.
