Re: “UPDATE: Eureka Approves Containerville Move, $75k in Funding

I presented a 3-page analyses to the city council describing in minute detail why the Marina Way location presents health and safety hazards to the homeless, and why it goes against the original intent expressed in the General Plan, ordinance No. 5-201, the Industrial/Coastal Dependent zoning designation,and so on. Also noted are significant hazards presented by Dock B, flooding, lack of safe "back door" (exit) from the end of a pocket street, noise pollution from the next door logging operation, not to mention the loss of many parking spaces for visitors. Also, cars, pedestrians and wheelchairs wouldn't be allowed to go the whole stretch of Marina Way. Some think that Marina Way offers more privacy than other sites, but that is an illusion promoted by those who don't know the street very well. In addition to it being the coldest and dampest place in Winter around here, the Coastal Commission advised the Eureka City Council on Monday to scrap this location. Good!

Re: “UPDATE: Eureka Approves Containerville Move, $75k in Funding

Marina way would be good on the very short term, but not long term. Long term, the city of Eureka needs to Work on cleaning up and developing the waterfront. There's so much real estate right on the water that's home to derelict buildings, junk heaps, and empty lots of tattered unkempt grass. The whole stretch needs to be cleaned up and re-zoned. It would cost millions up front but that land could bring in many millions more, were it a pristine tourist destination. And to get back on subject, it would allow for the creation of hundreds of jobs.

Re: “UPDATE: Eureka Approves Containerville Move, $75k in Funding

I hope the Marina Way location isn't chosen. Regular visitors and tourists are being told to sacrifice a recreational public right of way to a minority. Furthermore, the street is covered under public safety ordinance No5-201 and is zoned Industrial/Coastal Dependent. It's not suitable for human habitation and isn't near any services at all. Bad choice all the way around.

Re: “Service Call

As Heidi's older brother, I can vouch for her memories here, her dedication to loving God and loving others. She is an amazing woman, and I would vote for her in a heartbeat. Too bad she's not the woman running for president. lol.

Re: “UPDATE: Judge Allows Budget Motel Evictions to Proceed

The City Of Eureka is getting pretty good at taking people and moving them from bad situations to even worse situations, while forcing those people into even more dependency upon government. Beats the heck out of bringing living-wage jobs to the area and HEALING healthcare that doesn't just turn people into pain-filled addicts who are conditioned to see drugs as the only "answer"...

Re: “Service Call

Heidi is one of the best people I know. I have known her for two decades and she is as real and authentic now, as she wa the first time I met her. More than this, Heidi has a passion and heart for people, especially those who experience barriers to access and have difficulty overcoming those on their own. Heidi will make an excellent city council woman. Eureka is lucky to have her!

Re: “Profits over People?

Venezuela forced businesses to stay open and operate at a loss. How did that work out for them? And the argument that a company is making money elsewhere in the state and should accept whatever profit margin this region deems appropriate is ludicrous. They should be allowed to close and move on. A company is not responsible for your loved ones--YOU are!

Re: “Service Call

She is incredible! I was so impressed by Heidi as she quickly responded to the Humboldt Builders Exchange's request to meet with her regarding our safety concerns! She is a great listener and cares about making positive changes in our community!

Re: “A 'Moral Obligation': Eureka Celebrates Family Shelter Opening

"Humboldt County 4th District Supervisor Virginia Bass refers to challenges Chinn's outreach faced from local business owners and the city of Eureka as a 'dark time in our recent history.'"

Local business owners are still fighting the tools that get affordable housing and SRO's built, ie, policies, ordinances and fees that make temporary group shelters obsolete.

Celebrating a temporary shelter while fighting humane policies and turning independent motel housing into boarded-up firetraps is reprehensible.

Re: “Mold School

I find it incredibly hypocritical that the government that offers monitory rewards for whistle blowing against private parties, will jail or fire those that whistle blow against them.

Re: “Mold School

I feel that if this had happened in Eureka there would have been a lot more investigating on the part of our local media. Teachers and staff are electing to leave the district rather than continue under this man, qualified people that KTJUSD can't afford to lose.
