Racism - We don't have that problem here – Healdsburg Responds. At the end of the June 1st City Council meeting, Healdsburg leaders unwittingly gave voice to a narrative repeated by people in charge all over America, “We don’t have that problem here.” Insulted and angered, people mobilized with a petition to oust the mayor, put their racial experiences in writing and then hang them like flags around the gazebo on the downtown plaza for all to read at a June 11 rally.

It is absolutely essential that we develop the capacity to invest into our community, in a way that develops nourishing fooding systems, affordable sheltering systems across all phases of our lives, and all members of our community have the capacity to invest into the community. It is just an issue of will and direction to what is being called for in our community and watershed.

I don’t know about the rest of you but the world feels like everything is changing quickly. I read about the world turmoil, housing and politics and I need good news. I have great news and a solution to all the turmoil, knowledge is power.If you removed all political news, all of the housing crisis news, all of the healthcare news I wonder how we would feel? I think we would feel just as unsteady and here is why. We are on the tail end of the Industrial Age and are now in the INFORMATION AGE.

This forced isolation is a perfect time to reflect, to acknowledge our feelings, to think deeply about life and death, to turn to our treasured writers, thinkers and poets in order to make sense of existence. City Council meets April 6 and April 20, 6PM using new Brown Act revisions that allow all but one council member to call in remotely. You can watch/listen to the meetings from home via the City website. Click on the tiny orange RSS symbol on the right. .

The City owns a centrally-located downtown parcel known as 3 North Street, and it is trying to decide what it should build on this prime location. Local hoteliers and others have circulated a petition in support of an already-planned event pavilion and parking concept on this City property.  The Foley family has offered a $7 million gift to build it. Because this is public property, the City is also considering whether it should build affordable housing on City-owned land. After a City study, the highest scoring property by far is 3 North Street. Should the City go forward with the event center plan, which now has private funding? Or pause to consider affordable housing on the site?

Healdsburg has a powerful lever to pull in the energy arena: its publicly owned utility. Healdsburg has operated an electrical utility since 1899. The City owns generation facilities to produce electricity to meet the City’s demands while it maintains the distribution infrastructure throughout the City limits. Healdsburg’s residents and community members have local control of where their electricity comes from, and therefore, the carbon-intensity of electricity.
