Re: “Town Hall Focuses on Need for Transitional Housing

So Eureka just voted to sell city owned property on Broadway to an upscale hotel developer instead of the other choice to create more alcohol and drug treatment beds. Tourist will not be coming to Eureka while tremendous numbers of homeless are chased up and down 101 by the police, carrying their remaining essentials in giant plastic bags, or shopping carts. Misdirected opportunities and priorities. A sanctioned area where homeless could be minimally housed and be safe , warm and dry is the essential next step... not a hotel... that's not going to attract tourists repelled by the blight and lack of care for the destitude... priorities!

Re: “The Last Days of the Budget Motel

A permanent solution to a temporary problem. Lawsuits and further expenses exceeding rehab cost will be levied against Eureka... GL there removing, rather than managing the substandard housing critical to many in a city with a declared shelter crisis. It will be a minimum of 3 years before replacement housing is constructed. There maybe residual residential rights for former residents required, and litigation, leaving site vacant for a decade. Way to go Eureka!

Re: “Push and Pull

Under state and federal law, when a construction project is contemplated, relocation is required for anyone living there, at that time. This should apply here. As someone asked, why are we building recreational trails when we have not taken basic steps to house mentally ill and disabled families squatting there, at the direction of the city?

Re: “That Juice Tax

The tax was passed based on a financial analysis that showed it would produce revenue, no?... Not a loss. Seemed an expensive fix, given the CARE program was changed just before the tax was passed. The city did not generate $225,000... it lost $375,000. Were the grows that left Arcata legitimate 215 medical grows, or something illegal? Just as an independent observation, it looks like the grow business is a positive economic force in town, legal under 215... so it seems to be a self inflicted wound, not so much a victory over evil.... Myself, I would not give PG&E a dime to raise taxes on Arcata citizens, much less $600,000.....
