Weekly Update #30 - July 27, 2021

Posted on July 27, 2021 at 11:50 PM Comments comments ()
Good evening, my name is Mo Mulheren. I am the Second District Supervisor. Every Tuesday night I do an update of what I worked on the previous week. This is a very brief summary to let you know what I’ve been up to and if something peeks your interest please ask questions or attend my Thursday morning zoom. 


On Wednesday I filled in for a member of the MCOG Transportation committee on behalf of MTA. We approved a plan to bring to MCOG and MTA to establish rates of reimbursement for Senior Centers "Door through Door Service". 


Thursday mornings Coffee and Conversation was very lightly attended. (AKA just me and Mark) This week though I will have a special guest. Assembly Member Jim Wood. We will be discussing what the projects he is currently working on; Broadband, Fire prevention/Home hardening and Capitol Happenings including the fishing bill and his committee assignments. See you virtually at 7:15am Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707
This year I am chair of the Russian River Watershed Association. On Thursday we received an update about all of the projects that the organization is working on. I would love it if you can help spread the word about the awesome videos that the youth in Mendocino and Sonoma County created last year as well as share the info about this years project which will be drought related. http://www.rrwatershed.org/project/student-videos/
RRWA is also working with Sonoma State students on making homeless encampments along the river and identifying policy and political barriers that have prevented making toilets accessible at those locations. 
We had another Tax Sharing meeting and will be setting up a meeting with the four cities (Ukiah, Point Arena, Willits, Fort Bragg) to discuss how we can move forward. 
Each year I participate in the Russian River Clean Up. We had a planning meeting on Thursday - its September 18th so save the date 
Ok so technically a Clothing Swap isn’t Supervisor related but did you know that 84% of clothing ends up in a landfill. Swap don’t shop! 

On Friday I listened in on the Latin X Men's Mental Health informational Zoom lunch. There was a panel that discussed the challenges that black and brown men face when trying to discuss and identify mental health concerns. There was a lot of vulnerability in the stories and I’m grateful that they were so open. We all need to learn to be more empathetic to one another. 


On Saturday I was invited for a night out at the Flynn Creek Circus. This was my first time seeing the show. What incredible talent! 


Bright and early Sunday I hit 101 for a Highway Clean Up. I was joined by Ken Johnson and Pete Gallegos. I’m grateful that they showed up to help. Many hands make light work! 
On Sunday afternoon my youngest daughter and I took the paddle board and kayak out to Lake Mendo. And sure enough the water is still wet. Just takes a little longer to get there. 
Of course I volunteered at the Sundays in the Park for the Ukiah Main Street Program. Public Health is offering vaccines and testing at the concerts so hopefully that will make it easy for people to get the vaccine if they haven’t done so already. We are only a little over 50% vaccinated in Mendocino County and cases are surging so if you have ideas for those that are hesitant please let me know. 

On Monday morning I was invited to a Zoom meeting 
of the Sierra Club Utility Task Force. I learned a lot about the work that PG&E is doing with vegetation management vs what they could be doing by replacing lines. Of course the folks are rightly concerned about the number of trees that are being taken down vs hardening the lines. I will be following up by reading the studies they sent me. 
In the afternoon I went to the Stepping up Committee Meeting. The asset mapping is almost complete and the partners are doing a good job of communicating. They’ve identified a few people that may be absent from the table and will be reaching out. It’s really important to have everyone hearing and making the same decisions if collaborations are going to be successful. I hope to share the map soon on my Facebook page so make sure you follow @Mo4Mendo 

This morning I had a conversation about 
Public Health concerns about accessibility to Covid Information. Please share with friends and family that testing locations and vaccine events are always on the County website located here: https://www.mendocinocounty.org/community/novel-coronavirus
I also had a great conversation with the Army Recruiting folks. I think it’s important that our young people are connected to local government if we hope to have them come back after their service. I’m working on a reunion for the Hometown Heroes on 9/11 please look for more information 
I’ve been invited to be on a CSAC Panel about leadership during a disaster. That’s coming up next month I’ll let you know how it goes! 

I hope you are well and as always if you have questions please reach out to me. I’m always ready to take your questions 707-391-3664z have a good night! 

Weekly update #29 - July 20, 2021

Hi! I’m Mo. I am the Second District Supervisor for Mendocino County. On Tuesday evenings I present a summary of some of the meetings I’ve attended during the week. This is not an inclusive list, it’s just meant to give you an idea of projects that I’m working on in case you’d like to ask questions but aren’t sure which committees I’m assigned to. I hope you enjoy. If you’d like this emailed to you directly please send me your email address with newsletter in the subject. [email protected] or Text your email to 707-391-3664

Wednesday
Once a month I meet with Ukiah City Councilmember and City Manager Sangiacomo. This is the best way to keep updates on things happening in my district and discuss hot topics from the County. We discussed if there was potential for another Project Homekey location in the City if funding becomes available. For now the City and County are waiting to see what funding is available and what the requirements are. We also discussed the UVSD and City communications and the recycled water project. 
I was running a little late but made it to the Ukiah Main Street Program Meeting. In case you didn’t know I’ve been on the UMSP way before I was an elected official and having had a downtown location for 10 years at various businesses it’s important to me that we keep up the continuity and promotion of the Downtown. We discussed the upcoming Streetscape celebration (August 28th, save the date), pumpkin fest (10/15-10/17), the First Friday Art Walk and some new businesses
coming to the Downtown. Hello and Welcome to the Thirsty Axe!! 

Thursday
Mendocino Business and Government Leaders was started at the beginning of the pandemic as a way to connect the Cities with the County. We now meet monthly to discuss Covid rates, testing and economic recovery. We still have many cases in Mendocino County. If you haven’t been vaccinated please consider getting vaccinated. If you aren’t vaccinated please consider testing if you attend a social function or event. 
I had a couple of cannabis meetings. 
Coffee regarding Cannabis - concerned community member/pro-referendum. We had about an hour long conversation and most of it surrounded the lack of trust in the County capacity to run a successful cannabis program. The only thing that’s going to change that is experience and getting the job done. We need time for that. 
Coffee regarding Cannabis again - unsuccessful applicant. As the cannabis program sorts through the applications I’m sure we will see more of these folks that got a denial letter. The BOS has been consistent on the reasons for denial so hopefully it won’t happen too often.

Friday
On Friday morning I had a check in with CalFire regarding Alert and Warning and what systems they utilize.

Saturday
Saturday was the Kids Triathalon in Ukiah and I had a great time on the set up crew. It’s so important that we give kids a healthy outlet. Thank you to the City of Ukiah for putting it on, North Coast Striders for “running the run” and Walk and Bike Mendocino for the bike event. Adventist Health provided lunch and the merchants from the Pear Tree Center provided a goodie bag. 

Sunday
Sunday was a celebration for Carre Brown’s Retirement with MWPC. It was a really lovely afternoon. I got to talk about how as a council member Carre had encouraged me to come to the table with the Army Corp to have the deferred maintenance at Lake Mendo. At the end of her speech Carre gifted me a beautiful broach to use as my lucky election token. What an honor!

Weekly Update #28 - July 13, 2021

Posted on July 13, 2021 at 11:55 PM Comments comments ()

Wednesday

On Wednesday I went to the Jail to meet with Kate Feigin about some work she's doing with Sheriff Kendall and Chief of Probation Izen Locatelli. The jail has a garden and a bee keeping program. They also have GED and some college classes. I have asked Kate, the Sheriff and Chief Locatelli to come to a meeting in September to share their program vision. Inmates learn the art of beekeeping at Mendocino County jail (pressdemocrat.com)

As usual I listened in to the City Council Meeting. The City is applying for CDBG grants and they also received a report and update from EDFC which they help fund. 

 

Thursday

You know that every Thursday begins with Coffee and Conversation. We discussed a fellow named James that has taken up residency a few hundred feet away from Building Bridges. He does not receive services from Building Bridges and so far they have not been able to successfully encourage him to move along. Presumably because he has no where else to go but it has an impact on their City permit and the perception of the community. Homelessness is a complicated issue every where. Always looking forward to having conversations and being a sounding board. Feel free to join the conversation on Thursday morning 7:15am Zoom Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707. Assemblymember Jim Wood will be joining me on 7/29/21

I went to the Hopland Resource Education center to have a conversation with a researcher regarding Cannabis and the economy in Mendocino County. This is a subject that I would never be done talking about. Especially why I support the cannabis industry as a legal business in Mendocino County. Make sure you follow me on @Mo4Mendo to learn more

At the EDFC Board Meeting we approved a loan for a local company in Fort Bragg. I hope to be able to share more soon!

I listened in on the Covid Equity Working Group. They are still working on trying to get people vaccinated and thinking about how to protect kids in the fall when school comes back in session.

At the IWPC meeting of course the conversation was mostly focused on the drought of course. If you are looking for more updates on the drought please follow me on Facebook @ Mo4Mendo

 

Friday

I had a meeting on Friday with County staff regarding the City of Ukiah and Project Homekey 2.0. Last month the BOS sent letters to all of the municipalities to ask if they would be interested in a homeless to housing project. I had listened in to the City Council meeting and they seemed reluctant so I wanted to meet with County staff before meeting with Council-member Brown my  liaison with the City. If you would like to know how the current project is going you can read more at projecthomekeymendocino.org or listen in to the City Council meeting next Wednesday when Megan Van Sant does a presentation.

 

Saturday

I spent Saturday morning at the Farmers Market. It was not hot as it had been so that was good! I love talking about food waste. Our “dumbest” environmental problem (according to Vox online). I hosted one contest already on my Facebook. Did you read this far? Text me a picture of your food waste from all day tomorrow and I will give you a prize! 707-391-3664

Saturday was the Pear Tree Cruise-In and Car Show. Oh man it was hot but a couple of dozen cars showed up and a good time was had by all. Looking forward to the Grand Opening of the Streetscape where the classic cars are invited to line up on School Street. If you’d like to put your car out for display you can contact Katrina Kessen at the Greater Ukiah Business and Tourism Alliance.

 

Sunday

Sundays are for Agenda Prep! It was a hot one out so I didn’t mind being tied to my iPad indoors.

This was our first Sundays in the Park with local Country favorites Johnny Young Band and Charlie Crocket. I worked in the Ukiah Main Street Program beer and wine booth a fundraiser for the Downtown. I had a great night!

 

Monday

At our Monday Mendocino LAFCO meeting we had a review of the Covelo draft Municipal Service Review and Sphere Update. Covelo has a hard time getting an accurate census but it is important that they have adequate services for the residents. You can read the report here: https://www.mendolafco.org/

Weekly Update #26 (should have been 27) - 7/6/21

Posted on July 6, 2021 at 10:55 PM Comments comments ()

Hi everyone, sorry I skipped a week. I had to move and the major crunch ended up being right on Tuesday night when I would have normally sent out my newsletter. Please remember this isn’t all of the meetings I attend or work that I do just a summary to keep you updated and give you a nudge in case you see something you’d like to talk to me about.

 

Wednesday 6/23

The Behavioral Health Advisory Board had a discussion about the data and statistics that RQMC provides on their dashboards and how to make that a more effective tool for communication. There was also  a discussion on Measure B and the BOS joint meeting and actions moving forward.

If you are interested in viewing the Measure B meeting that took place you can find it on its own YouTube Channel  https://youtu.be/377Pg1yaOas

 

Thursday 6/24

Coffee and Conversation - In case you are reading this update for the first time... every Thursday I have a meeting from 7:15am-7:45am so that we can discuss whatever is on your mind. You don’t have to drink coffee. Tea and water drinkers are also welcome.

We met with the Lake and Mendocino folks for our Area on Aging monthly meeting. Most of the meetings discussion centered around how to divide the budget amongst the senior centers. While coming out of the Covid Shelter in Place each agency has different needs. We will really be disappointed to see the Great Plates meal program go away as it was providing healthy and nutritious meals for our home bound seniors.

 

Friday 6/25

On Friday I got to take a ride over to Anderson Valley for a meeting with Ted Williams and a few of the Chiefs and Board members from the various Mendocino County Fire Districts. This was really a getting to know you type of meeting so that I can become acquainted with where Supervisor McCowen and Williams had left off. I’m happy to part of the conversation and hope we can work towards having a strong fire service in Mendocino County because we all know we need it.

I met with two local realtors that have questions and concerns about the new cannabis ordinance. The CCAO is complicated and there are many variables but the concerns of most people remain the same including concerns about the environment and water during a drought. I hope that as we work together as a community we can continue to strategize the best legal path forward for cultivators while also protecting neighbors rights. If you have questions about the new ordinance I have been posting screen shots of specific issues on my Facebook page. As a reminder you don’t have to “join” Facebook in order to review posts if you would like to learn more. Www.Facebook.Com/Mo4Mendo

We got to have a special treat! Movies brought to us by the City of Ukiah are back! We were able to watch Alice in Wonderland outdoors at the Ukiah Golf Course. Honestly I’ve never golfed before so this was a great use of the course LOL plus the food at the Slush by the Park was delicious. I highly recommend it.

 

Saturday 6/26

On Saturday the Jackson Demonstration State Forest - CalFire hosted a public meeting at the Camp 20 turn out. There were about ten CalFire booths set up that had various aspects of the JDSF and the work that they do including information about Timber Harvest Plans. You can find more information here... https://www.fire.ca.gov/programs/resource-management/resource-protection-improvement/demonstration-state-forests/jackson/

 

 

Sunday 6/27

Packing to get ready to move - I sold the house I owned with my ex-husband 7 years ago. This is the third time I’ve had to find housing. It’s not easy looking for something in the City limits that will allow a pet but thank goodness we found it! Moving literally two blocks away. Now if only I could find a small home that I could afford to buy so I don’t have to worry about moving. Sorry that was a personal but relevant rant. UKIAH needs housing

 

 

Monday 6/28

On Monday we had our first meeting with the Tax Sharing Ad Hoc. I met with Supervisor Gjerde, our Auditor Lloyd Weer and Deputy CEO Darcie Antle to come up with a game plan for a County Wide Tax Sharing discussion.

The Stepping Up Committee is a group of our law enforcement and mental health professionals that meet to discuss ways to help folks that have mental illness and are in the justice system. Communication between the agencies is going to be key to making this program work.

I attended another  Local Road Safety Plan meeting put on by MCOG consultants. This is a County Wide discussion. If you have areas of concern please mark them on the map: https://www.mendocinosaferoads.com/

I spent an hour or so on Monday having a Cannabis convo with a consultant for Phase 1 farmers. She said she is ready with 20 applications just waiting for the County to reopen the portal to get them through the process. No one denies that the cannabis program has been clunky especially moving between departments, now that it is its own department I think we will be able to see our way out of the mess and get farmers through to licensure.

 

Tuesday 6/29

On Tuesday I took a tour of the Jackson Demonstration State Forest with Marie Jones and John P O’Brien to walk several sites at JDSF to see what they think could be done differently in regards to research in the State Forest.

 

Wednesday 6/30

On Wednesday I had a Workforce Alliance of the North Bay check in with Bruce Wilson the Executive Director and John Haschak. I am still concerned about the resources that will get to Mendocino County and how they will be used. We will see when the new contractor is in place what the roll out looks like. They have a lot of ideas about being more mobile and going to the work force. I will post updates and events on this page.

I had the pleasure of having lunch with Carre Brown. It’s always nice to hear some of the history and get feedback. Carrie will be honored later this month by the Mendocino Women’s Political Coalition I will share the details of that event here so that you may join.

We had a pretty quiet MTA Board Meeting. We need to figure out a way to staff back up to pre-pandemic numbers so if you know anyone that is looking for a job the MTA might be a great fit. Also offering free rides to vaccine clinics in Mendocino County for anyone that has an appointment.

 

Thursday 7/1

Moving Day! 7 people (2 teenage girls and one infant) moved my 3 bed 2 bath house to a 2 bed 1 bath townhouse in 2 hours. I guess after moving so many times you get used to it.

 

Friday 7/2

On Friday morning I was honored to be asked to speak at a Great Redwood Trail Press Conference. The State has allocated $16 million dollars in the budget for the Master Plan and rail banking so we can bring this vision to fruition. You can read more here: https://www.willitsnews.com/2021/07/05/great-redwood-trail-one-step-closer-to-reality-state-sen-mike-mcguire-announces/

I got to attend my first in person First Friday Art Walk. Annie Rugyt showed her work at the Co-Work Space and even offered tarot readings. If you would like to catch up on the next art walk you can find all of the locations at ArtwalkUkiah.Org

 

Saturday 7/3

Would it really be the Fourth of July if you didn’t check out the Fort Bragg Fog Works? They were beautiful, even though it was foggy. It was nice to see so many people out and about.

 

Sunday 7/4

I was getting all around the County this weekend. I also enjoyed the Willits Parade and BBQ!

 

Monday 7/5

I spent the day talking about Cannabis and the Referendum. You can read snipits on my Facebook page:

 

Tuesday 7/6

No meetings today work on schedule for next week, would you like to see me at the Farmers Market?

Weekly Update #25 - 6/22/21

Posted on June 22, 2021 at 11:45 PM Comments comments ()

Wednesday: 

I started my morning by hearing from a local resident about a Housing Idea. I love it when people bring me their big ideas. I hope we could figure out a way to help the community provide the right type of housing for the right 

I listened in to a webinar that was titled "A conversation on Youth Mental Health with Youth". There is no doubt that the Covid Pandemic and Shelter in Place have challenged the youth in our community in their ability to adapt to a very tumultuous situation. Being a teenager is rough, I can't imagine being a teenager and not being able to see your friends, or go to school or to have your whole family home all the time. I hope that the youth continue to find ways to speak out and have their voice heard so that we can do better in the future when situations arise. 

During the Ukiah City Council Meeting there was an interesting conversation about Project Homekey 2.0. The County sent a letter to each of the cities about the Governor's Proposed Project Homekey 2.0 which provides grant opportunities to municipalities to turn hotels in to housing.  There is currently one project in Mendocino County, Live Oak Apartments the former Best Western in Ukiah. The funding for this initial project came down very swiftly. The County is trying to offer the cities the opportunity to help plan a more collaborative project. I believe that if there is collaboration this could be a great benefit to our community. Have you ever thought about a motel that would make a good housing opportunity? Let's hear about it. Project Homekey Mendocino –

 

 

Thursday

Every single Thursday morning I host a Zoom meeting that I call Coffee and Conversation. Would you like to chat? You can find me on Zoom at Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707

MBGL : We have a surge in unvaccinated individuals, low testing, Dashboard needs to be redesigned, 4 in hospital here, 85,000 + vaccines 65%’ish vaccinated, over 65 very slow to take vaccine,  schools info will be released later along with CalOSHA masking requirements will be released tonight, new flyer regarding masking and symptoms on County website (This month will only be once per month now that the Governor has released the Blueprint for Reopening Regulations)

I had a really exciting meeting around Local Food. You may know that in 2014 there was a Mendocino Food Action Plan. Some of the items have been implemented but there is more work to do. You can find it here (foodactionplan_highlights.pdf) and let me know how you want to help. 

 

 

Friday: 

Speaking of food on Friday I paid a visit bright and early to Cold Creek Compost in Potter Valley. In the unincorporated areas of Mendocino County and the City of Ukiah your food waste, soiled paper towels and greasy pizza boxes go to Cold Creek to be turned in to soil to be used by local agriculture. SB1383 requires 75% diversion of our food waste to the landfill. We are currently only at 5.7% in the State so we have a long way to go. I will do contests on my Facebook and Instagram throughout the month of July as well as attending the Farmers Market (see below) to raise awareness and hope to increase the use of the Mixed Waste bin. 

We had a meeting of the Workforce Alliance Governing Board. This is one of the largest regional boards that I sit on and I want to make sure that Mendocino County has the funds and resources that the business owners and employees need. They have a new contractor and now have no staff located in Mendocino County. I look forward to providing updates and working to make sure that Mendo is not forgotten.

I was excited to be able to attend the DFC Coalition. I am very excited about the mural projects. As you know they have just recently completed a mural to recognize Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Next they will be doing a mural titled "No human is illegal" and then they will work on a third mural around the LGBTQIA+ community. They are also trying to raise awareness about the harms of "Whip-its" or "Nitrous Oxide". If you find these containers in the community please set them aside for their presentation. Also if you go to any local smoke shops please tell them to stop selling these dangerous items. Here is their petition that you can sign in support.

I had a chance to listen in to the Mendocino Climate Change Action Advisory Committee. I normally don't have a chance to catch these meetings. I am grateful that they are doing good work for the County and looking forward to hearing more about their recommendations. 

 

 

Saturday:

On Saturday I went to the Farmers Market to talk about my Food Waste Challenge. I have some giveaways including bins to put under your sink to collect your food scraps so you can take them out to your green bin. The Farmers market was pretty slow. It was pretty hot out but don't forget that these local farmers are counting on you to purchase their items to keep their farms going. (And there is a market in Redwood Valley on Sunday's in the summer so you have time to check it out!)

 

 

 

Sunday:

Father's Day - My dad is the greatest! That's an American fact. LOL We went to lunch at the Ukiah Brewing Company

Hi , I am a day late. There's a lot going on with Budget Hearings. Please forgive me.

 

As a reminder I am only one person that wants to share information about what I am working on in the community  so that we can work together to come up with solutions. Here is what I did last week. This does not represent "The Board" or "The County" just "The Mo You Know". I'm happy to hear from you my email is [email protected] and my cell is 707-391-3664, I'm terrible with voicemail. Text is best. 

 

Wednesday:

Cannabis Special Meeting

This reads like I speak, one long run on sentence.

Enjoy.

 

The BOS voted 4-1 to move the new Cannabis Ordinance referred to as CCAO (Commercial Cannabis Activity Land Use Development Ordinance) I wanted to provide my thoughts in a summary before the rumor mill started (all though I see its already started). I think the most important question I get asked is so What’s different? What makes the Board think they can fix the failure of the Phase 1 Ordinance? The following are my notes during the meeting of things that were standing out to me as questions or concerns I heard from the community though of course I’m happy to answer any questions. There are several things that are still open to discussion and feedback listed at the bottom if you have thoughts.

 

“The Ordinance with all of the amendments is a sincere attempt to incorporate the community concerns” - Chair Gjerde 6/2/21

I think this is incredibly important for people to understand. The Supervisors are not “going against” the community. We have heard and have incorporated where possible the changes the community is asking for. We know that not everyone will be happy and frankly we’ve made people on both sides of the 10% argument unhappy so in my opinion that means we’ve landed somewhere in the middle. I hope that people will slow down on the demand for a referendum and let the new ordinance be adopted and play out. Here are my thoughts on why I voted in favor of the ordinance.

 

The Hot Topic 10%

Since this seems to be the hot topic I will get started with 10%.  Please remember that there are many requirements for cannabis businesses and there is a lot of gossip of cannabis taking over 10% of the County and truly that‘s not how its going to work. The Board did vote to Approve an Appendix A table that includes the option of properties over 10 acres in RL and Ag to apply for a permit to cultivate cannabis on up to 10% of their property. We also voted to bring back a phased approach for expansion starting at 2 acres and creating a timeline to allow a scaling up over a period of (??? Don’t know yet but likely several years) at the next meeting possible, which looks like August. Because of the timeline with CEQA we can become more restrictive and not less, so this gives us an opportunity to work backwards rather than starting at two acres max from the get go. If a person owns over 10 acres in Ag land or Rangeland (most of Inland Mendo is in Rangeland, not because the soil is special, literally because someone drove around in the 80’s and declared it to be rangeland) they could apply for a Major Use Permit to cultivate cannabis on up to 10% of their property. Mind you this expansion is outdoors in the sun (just like vineyards, except for in this Mendo ordinance cannabis can't be expanded on bare land it has to be land that was already utilized for ag). The ability to cultivate mixed light is currently limited at 22,000 sq ft max (but at least two Supervisors want to further restrict that). Recognizing that California has drought cycles that can play a role in how a business operates and trying to mitigate the water concerns of the community any new project would need to have a water source on site, if they are drilling a well they will have to have a full hydrological study to show that their well won’t affect their neighbors and trucked water is not allowed except for in a disaster (not complete with the definition of that yet, so more to come).  The BOS heard the PCommish and the cannabis advocacy groups that called for a 2 acre limit so at the next possible meeting (late July or August before there is room on an agenda) the P Commish will consider how to create a phased approach starting at 2 acres (not until 2023 -  no new projects during this year’s drought and likely no one getting through the permitting process for 12-18 months (Yes, it takes that long for a major use project to get through, working on that too). Supervisor Gjerde suggested a 5 acre cap total with a roll out starting in 2026 for this phased approach. I think I’ve said it about 500 times and I will continue to say it, we need to let the projects that come forward guide the conversation instead of throwing out arbitrary numbers, that’s why I believe 10% make sense because it provides a ceiling but lets the business owner and property limitations decide canopy based on capacity. Let’s pause for a moment and discuss why people need that much cannabis in the first place. The way I see it there are basically two markets for cannabis products. There is the artisanal cottage grown flower that Mendocino County is known for. And there are products that come from manufacturing using the oils from the cannabis. The situation is that the manufacturing requires a lot of cannabis, I’ve heard 4-5,000 lbs per day. I know not everyone likes this but I do compare it to the wine industry where you need a lot of grapes to make wine so you also need a lot of cannabis to make oil. Did you know that vineyards can be as big as they want in any land use zone in Mendocino County? Well it matters and I wish we would talk about it more as our hillsides are bull dozed for more and more vines (which do use water BTW) just as much as we talk about Cannabis (anyone want to talk about that?). Back to cannabis though, Mendo’s challenge is that these large businesses are cultivating in other counties or getting large bulk flower from other places like Santa Barbara because we have been limited cultivation acreage in Mendo to 10,000 sq feet. So in my opinion we should allow the opportunity for that cultivation to happen locally so that our Mendo folks can have the jobs that come with it. Let’s talk about Santa Barbara for a moment. Do I want Mendo to become Santa Barbara? No. Full stop. (See below for an addition added after the weekend) The entire ordinance that has been created has steered the market in to outdoor sun grown cannabis. Part of the 2 acre conversation that will come back to the Board is the limiting of other mixed light license types in particular for expansion but also for Phase 3 generally. Even though I’ve never cultivated cannabis I do understand the need for mixed light facilities after many tours. I hope that the Board takes the time to carefully consider the variety of business models and the mitigation’s that can occur with these types of projects including sighting out of view, down shielding lights, canopy types etc. I realize that this seems all over the place but there are many pieces to the ordinance and I’m just trying to include the 6 months of conversations that I have participated in although this expansion has been discussed since 2017. I think that is another good point that Supervisor Williams brought up. Phase 3 already exists and its not this strict or limiting as what was approved today and we can’t keep postponing this new ordinance. Another important reason to move the ordinance forward now and then change it as we go along. Yes, we can change it in the future, specifically making it more strict. Supervisor McGourty started the conversation by saying that with this ordinance Mendocino County will actually have one of the most stringent application processes across the State. We know that the State of California also has very stringent regulations but I will note here that that isn’t what is seen on the ground today and that is a real problem, I recognize that as a challenge for the community.

 

“What’s different?” I think this Board has made it clear that Code Enforcement is a priority. There is now a plan that includes Code Enforcement, the Sheriff’s Office and the Cannabis Program to work together to remove the most egregious actors first. I believe the funding for that will be coming forward in the budget discussion. The Board has also approved moving forward with a near real time satellite system to levy fees on illegal cultivators. This is all good but we also need to have a legal path forward for businesses that want to get in to the regulated market if we want to capture the potential tax revenue. 

 

So what else is different? Frankly new leadership on the BOS & with the Cannabis Program. Its not as if I think having two new Supervisors waves some magical wand and suddenly code enforcement and the cannabis program are fixed over night. I think the political will clearly says two things: we want as many businesses as possible to get in to the regulated system and we want those that don't have the option to become legal to stop operating. We have an experienced Cannabis Program Manager that is committed to moving as many permits through as will qualify and support the team of the Cannabis Program to have applicants be successful. 

 

Cannabis Program - accept applications based on capacity, another challenge has been the pause on accepting new applications (?2019?) and the capacity of staff to move applicants through the process. This will be brought forward to the Board when PBS and CP develop a plan, perhaps accepting applications for the first week of the month and then processing them and reopening the first week of the next month, maybe only on Mondays and Tuesdays I'm not sure. The BOS and staff recognize that managing expectations of permit process for the applicants and approval is very important. I look forward to having a clear path forward to reduce the confusion we’ve had with portal or no portal etc. The Cannabis Program meetings on YouTube have been helpful I check them out look up Mendocino County Video 

 

Active Code Enforcement (CP, PBS & MCSO) - so I took this as a note and I mentioned it briefly above. The lack of active code enforcement has been evident to the community and caused many concerns and frustrations. The Board has committed to improving this and recently you have probably seen announcements of cannabis code enforcement to raise awareness as to the number of fees and the level of enforcement that exists even now. I can’t answer for why it hasn’t been a priority in the past all that I can say that the votes of this Board have over and over emphasized the need for people to get in to the legal market or stop cultivating.

 

Note- Two Industries: Artisanal cultivation/Manufacturing - Covered this above. Small cottage cultivators are not competing product wise with a large cultivator that for instance wants to grow two acres. There is a lot of fear especially by small cultivators that acres of cannabis will take them out of the market. The Phase 3 Cannabis Facilities ordinance changed the way that small cultivators can operate their business and I wish that it had gotten more positive attention. Farmers Markets, farm tours, self-distribution all of these bring the customer to the farmer. Your brand is yours, you are special. Market your product and your brand. There are resources out there that you can use. Please reach out to the West Company and learn about marketing and branding for free.

 

Water, water, water - the new CCAO Ordinance requires water storage and aims to reduce using ground water. We will require a hydrological study for a well to make sure that it doesn't impact neighbors. Again I realize this is not what has happened in the past but moving forward this is where we are going and the Board has provided clear direction that water concerns are real and businesses need to be prepared to have water on sight. One major complaint that we receive from constituents is around trucking water and that is not allowed in this new ordinance. Also there will be no new permits issued during the drought.

 

How do we protect Covelo and the North County? There has been a long list of ways in which the Board has supported the North County and Covelo in particular over the last six months; including applying for a large grant to clean up abandoned cars, increasing capacity at the Transfer Station, trying to seek a resident (or multiple?) MCSO Deputies. One of the ways that the new Ordinance will assist these communities is through the Use Permit Process. Each project will be brought forward one at a time with environmental and community concerns able to be mitigated through the planning process and I'm open to more suggestions. 

 

This is different than Sonoma County, the exact opposite - I've seen heard that Sonoma County recently voted to go back and do an EIR and what is important for you to know is that we are basically flip flopping with Sonoma County. They previously had a stringent site specific process that took time to get through the permitting system and were trying to create a policy that would streamline applications like our "Phase 1". Phase 3 or CCAO is a more stringent process than our Phase 1, and will take more time. One of the complaints from the previous program from Sonoma was that it was far too slow and now we are moving to that slow process and make sure that projects are vetted on a one by one basis,, we know it will be slow but we want to get it right. The Sonoma BOS vote was the opposite of what Mendo is doing. It would be assumed that if they seek an EIR and it determines as the State MND did that the cannabis industry is not having a substantial impact on the environment then they would move forward with allowing for a streamlined expansion project but we will have to follow that and see how it goes. 

 

So why no EIR? From my view an EIR would not be accurate due to all of the illegal cultivation. We must put a stop to illegal cultivation and require mitigation as an EIR would not reflect the true impact of cannabis on the community. Individual projects approved through the permitting process would likely not have an overall impact on the community (or have mitigation or they won’t be approved) or certainly not the impact that we have with cannabis as it stands today in the County. Future amendments can occur to create restrictions for the environment, we can move forward today based on the ordinance process and then add an amendment in the future for phasing. That’s why the 10% vote today and bringing 2 acres back in the future.

 

A reminder - This is an attempt to align with the State License program and provide clarity to applicants for environmental regulations and process for becoming a licensed regulated cannabis business in the State of California 

 

Another reminder - Cannabis is one of the most heavily regulated industries in the State of California. There are several State regulatory agencies that oversee Cannabis and its potential impact on the environment. I realize (again) that in the past it seems as though there has not been appropriate follow up. I know that the State and the County of Mendo are committed to working through the challenges and streamlining the regulated industry. 

Site specific CEQA on a project by project basis is important. Water, terrain, environmental conditions are not the same across Mendocino County. This is the 501st (I think the number is higher even though its only been six months?) time that I have said let the project bring forward what it can do on a site specific basis. One of the things that the community asked for over and over again was to pull illegal operators out of neighborhoods and on to appropriate land which Appendix A works to achieve. No structures above ridge line - important restriction for concerns about the perceived aesthetic impact of cannabis in Mendocino County. Medium indoor and medium mixed light shall use renewable energy sources for heating, cooling and energy light loads in line with State regulations. This ordinance seeks to  align County code and State licensing language as much as possible to ease confusion.

 

What about the Phase 1 cultivators? This is important. Cannabis is our industry (if you don’t like it help me find another) the fact is that your plumber, your substitute teacher, your nurse have been cultivating cannabis for a decade or more to help pay their mortgage. CCAO is their opportunity to get in to the regulated market before they have to cease that income. Heard loud and clear: Support Phase 1 and get them through the system - the Board agrees that supporting the Phase 1 farmers and getting them to a State of California License is a priority and has allowed additional time for them to get in the que before any new applicants. If you are Phase 1 and have been trying to get a State license your application should be nearly complete with the exception of the questions around Appendix G and SSHR. If you haven’t applied for a State license the time is now. Please watch the Cannabis Program meetings and be prepared.

 

What about everyone else? I realize that there are small cultivators that are not on this Zoning table. I’ve been reviewing previous Board meetings and ordinances to figure out a path forward to them. This agenda item is currently scheduled for July 13th if you have productive suggestions I am happy to hear them.

 

"Show me the money" - One more thing let's talk about the Board being "after the money" for me its not about the tax revenue (although to be clear cannabis is bringing in $6 million and our sales tax is around $7 million so the revenue is clearly significant) I will just share that for me its about the opportunity for people to either own their own business and legally cultivate or for our local people to be able to have jobs in the industry at varying levels of salary from entry level jobs to executive level jobs. Again happy to hear what other industry you have in mind that can successfully incorporate such a diverse community and their skill sets. 

 

There will be additional changes brought forward at another meeting:

-2 Acre cap - phased approach

-Bring back some mixed light classifications for review and potential removal from the zoning table

-Direct staff to look at license stacking and see what Mendo can do to mitigate that

 

OK those are my rough notes from the meeting. As a reminder I am only one person of five. I’m happy to answer questions for anything I didn’t cover. I hope this clarifies my thoughts on moving the CCAO forward in Mendocino County.

 

    

Thursday:

Coffee and Conversation every Thursday morning at 7:15a-7:45a on Zoom Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707 

I think I will continue to do these meetings via Zoom because the time seems convenient but if you are ready to meet in person please feel free to let me know.

Mendocino Business and Government Leaders - discussed what will happen when the Governor plans to reopen on June 15th. Dr Coren has said that Mendocino County will continue to follow the State CDPH and CalOSHA guidelines. Our case numbers have us in the red tier so its important to remember especially as we reopen that vaccinating and testing are very important. 

In the afternoon I met with Debbie who is new at EDFC. I look forward to her in the new position so she can help tell the story of the clients of EDFC and all that they are doing to support local businesses. 

 

Friday morning:

I spent the morning on Friday doing my Second Annual Birthday Food Drive. When Covid required many people to leave their jobs last year I opted to spend my birthday collecting pantry items for the Ukiah Food Bank. I had a great time and it was a success so I did the same thing this year and now it will be a Birthday tradition. I had about a dozen people sign up for pick up and I gathered everything by 10am. Thank you to everyone who participated. I'm not sure how much money we raised I believe its around $1,000 but I will share when I confirm. I go to Lucky Grocery Store every Monday and Thursday to pick up the food from shipping to take to the Ukiah Food Bank. Everything from bread to birthday cakes so if you ever have a bag of groceries you want to donate just let me know and I will swing by your porch and grab it. 

 

Friday, Saturday, Sunday:

So Wednesday wasn't the first time that I have been asked: Do you want Mendocino County to look like Santa Barbara? I think my natural reaction is to say No. There has been a lot of sharing about how many acres of cannabis are in hoop houses in Santa Barbara with images from the LA Times. I don't want to see our County filled with hoop houses that contain any crops (cannabis or otherwise). The truth of the matter is I have never even been to Santa Barbara, so how can I really say if I want Mendocino County to look like that or not. I took the weekend to drive down to Santa Barbara so at least I could say I've been there. Its beautiful, I drove down Highway 1 and took two days to get to Santa Barbara and drove back up to Ukiah on Highway 101 on Sunday. Did I see acres and acres of hoop houses filled with cannabis? Nope. I saw hoop houses. They appeared to have long stem roses, at least from my view in the passenger seat. Honestly it looked a lot like the South Coast and 101 in Mendo, but the valley was much bigger and had a lot more crops, rows and rows of crops. Actually it looks a lot what Sonoma County and Mendocino look like right now with acres and acres of vineyards. There was a lot of plastic, for the strawberry crops. There were obvious hoop houses but it wasn't like the images that I saw on social media. As I thought about it over the weekend in the end the Board never voted the same way that Santa Barbara did. The bottom line is that mixed light cultivation in Mendocino County is limited and what the Board is trying to do is allow a scaling up of outdoor sun grown cannabis in Mendocino County. Santa Barbara is beautiful and isn't the image presented in the recent conversations. So do I want Mendocino County to be Santa Barbara. No, I never did and I still don't (but at least I've been there now). I want us to be unique and to have an ordinance that meets the needs of our community. Not exactly Humboldt, not Lake, not Sonoma and not Santa Barbara but lets give our businesses a chance to be successful whether they are artisanal cottage cultivators or large scale manufacturers. 

 

Monday:

More news from LAFCO: The Board directed staff to pull the City of Ukiah and Ukiah Valley Sanitation District items so the ED and City Manager can work together before coming back to LAFCO. This is a positive step forward and I hope they are able to work on compromises and bring the LAFCO board back solutions. LAFCO went from a pretty quiet workplan to a lot of work being done in the next two or three years. Time to roll up our sleeves. 

On Monday afternoons I have a standing meeting with the CEO so I am able to ask any questions. Its easier for me to have a designated time. I just thought it was important for you to know that I have a regular meeting with the CEO if you have a specific question or concern, I'm happy to bring it up.

Weekly Update #22 - June 1, 2021

Posted on June 1, 2021 at 11:25 PM Comments comments ()

I was on vacation on Wednesday and Thursday and did not attend any meetings. I did of course respond to emails and have phone calls etc. The work never really stops, just changes location. As a reminder this is just a summary of things that I have been working on so that if you are interested in one of the items you can reach out and we can talk more. [email protected] My cell is 707-391-3664 .

 

Friday - Round 4 of the EDFC Interviews.  We still haven’t found who we were looking for. The new team approach needs the right third person so the hunt continues. I will keep you updated.

I also had a meeting about LAFCO Policies and Procedures Committee. The full LAFCO board needs to provide clear direction. Do we want to streamline the annexation process so that we can have orderly and logical development in our communities? Who will pay for it? There hasn't been new development in decades and all four cities lack housing. We have work to do. 

A lot of my day (weeks, months) of course included the Phase 3 discussion the BOS will have a special meeting tomorrow about the proposed ordinance. Here is a link to the agenda so you can catch up: https://mendocino.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx

Another current topic is the “Super Agency HHSA Conversation”. This has not come to the Board yet but we know there have been initial meetings and a lot of opinions about dividing up Social Services, Behavioral Health and Public Health. Should it stay one, be three or two? What are your thoughts?

I had a fun meeting about a proposed use for the Streeterie. Some young folks would like to have a Senior Prom. It’s in the works. I’m sure I will be up past my bedtime! That's not Supervisor related I'm just excited to see the kids having a good time. 

 

Saturday - Have you been to the Ukiah Farmers Market? Did you know that the Farmers Market accepts EBT? Here is more from the McFarm website. All seven MCFARM markets accept EBT and WIC coupons. We also offer an EBT Market Match Program that doubles the spending power of EBT/CalFresh recipients. Market Match is the single most effective way to support local farms and make local food more affordable for low-income community members. The program successfully redirects the subsidies away from industrial food in supermarkets and corner stores to local farmers by giving EBT users an additional dollar for every dollar they spend at the market. 

Each market has an EBT machine, like a debit or credit card processor, and an EBT/CalFresh recipient may use their benefits by simply swiping their card, indicate how much they want to take out, and receive tokens to spend at the market. This doubles the amount of tokens a customer can spend at the market. For example, if a customer spends $15 in EBT funds, they're given an extra $15 ($30 total) in market tokens to spend on fruits and vegetables. https://mcfarm.org/ebtfood-stamps

 

The Farmers Market is a great summer activity. Get out on a Saturday and enjoy the fresh air and meet your local vendors.

 

 

Sunday - Since this is not an official newsletter I would like to just share that I am having a Food Drive on Friday because its my Birthday! I am raising money through Facebook or you can send a check to Ukiah Food Bank 888 N State Street, Ukiah and put Mo’s Birthday in the memo. On Friday morning I will go around and pick up any bags or boxes on your porch and deliver them to the Food Bank. Why is this on Sunday? Because I was busy texting people asking if they want to participate. Want to help? Just text me at 707-391-3664

 

Monday - Of course Monday was the Memorial Day Holiday. I spent the day on Agenda prep. Here is a video of the virtual Memorial Day Celebration in Ukiah: https://youtu.be/cic6OWpeSh8

 

Tuesday - My morning started off with a Budget Discussion. Budget hearings start next week.

I had a meeting about RCS and the services that they provide in Mendocino County. It’s far better to have services locally for those that need mental health services. Have you ever had to travel out of town to visit a loved one in a mental health facility? Before I was a Supervisor I was not aware of how many places the County holds to secure beds for our mental health patients. We need more services locally. Keep following updates on the County website and my Facebook page for info.

I spent the day working on Proclamations for June. Normally I wouldn’t add this time to the newsletter but I just want you to know that Supervisors do want to acknowledge and observe different ways in our community to recognize all of the people that are doing good work in our community.

And of course I spent some time on reviewing Dr Coren meeting with the media last week and the  Planning Commission meeting. I spend a lot of my day studying and researching trying to hear from different people to make sure I have every perspective. 

 

Is there a subject you'd like to talk to me about? Please join me on Zoom. Thursday mornings at 7:15am

Mo Mulheren is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Friday

Drug Free Communities - MMIW Mural at the Arbor

 

Saturday

On Saturday I assisted with the Vaccine Clinic at UHS. This was for mostly second doses although we did happily accept anyone over the age of 12. If you know a young person that would like to get the Covid Vaccine please visit MendocinoCounty.Org to see when there will be a clinic near you. Measure A will go before the Voters in 2022 to remove the sunset and possible seek a quarter of a cent for libraries.

 

 

Sunday

I want to thank Pete Gallegos of Concrete Pete Construction for coming out early to help clean Highway 101. We got started at 7am. The next cleanup is in July. If you would like to help out please send me an email and I will add you to my list for reminders. ([email protected] or shoot me a text at 707-391-3664)

 

Monday

Joint Meeting with LAB- Library Advisory Board Members present: Lynn Zimmerman Shawn Haven Janis Marcell Michael Schaffer, Carolyn Schneider, Olga O’Neill Larry Riddell. Pandemic changed the way libraries were able to open because of the pandemic but over the last few weeks and months the library use is trending back towards pre-pandemic visitation. A87 costs weren’t charged and the General Fund was subsidizing the Library, and the staff wasn’t correctly maintaining the list of items that are charged A87 costs in the first place. Haschak and Gjerde to work with LAB on the A87 and sales tax questions/strategies.

 

Joint Meeting with BHAB, Measure B and the BOS. Public involvement with Mental Health in all aspects is important. Measure B and BOS Mental Health Initiative highlights: CRT, Orchard Avenue currently under construction plans to be complete and operational by November 2021 of this year. RFP for CRT award goes to Redwood Community Services. Behavioral Health Training Center is under construction should be open by July 1st of this year. Mobile response unit hiring is under way. One person hired, two more currently recruiting for. Contract for after-care with RCS will go before the Board. Community Education campaign is going to come before the Board very soon for contract approval. Kemper Report will be strategic plan for Measure B. $25 million dollars to move forward with a PHF. Board unanimously supports moving forward with a PHF. Telecare pending approval of contract for PHF with two options “Super” or “Normal”. Potential to demolition and build a PHF facility “off the cuff” at $25,000,000 price tag. Dr Miller mentioned that we will always need a PHF. What struck me is that you can have the best preventative programs but you will always still need an Emergency Room. If we don’t have a full load of Mendo residents in the facility neighboring counties such as Lake County can use the beds. Board unanimously approves moving forward with the County owned facility at Whitmore Lane as the PHF including a feasibility study for additional uses of the facility.

Weekly Update #20 - May 18, 2021

Posted on May 18, 2021 at 11:30 PM Comments comments ()

Wednesday

On Wednesday I attended the Workforce Alliance Strategic Planning Meeting with electeds from Lake, Mendocino, Napa and Sonoma Counties. What will the economy look like as we transition out of the pandemic. Here is a link to an interesting study: https://www.burning-glass.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/after_the_storm_recovery_jobs_executive_summary.pdf?fbclid=IwAR1UTAh0FeUyc-MY_Bu5ki66nPawy815Ohtykr4B16Qhk33Ef4YcYCJnojg

The MTA board approved a plan to connect transit routes through the City of Ukiah from East at Oak Manor Park to West at Todd Grove Park. This is something that has been called for since I was on the City Council. I am hopefully that this will be a better connector for the community. The route starts on July 1st so stay tuned for updates! http://mendocinotransit.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/D.4-East-West-Circular-05-12-21.pdf

 

Thursday

Every Thursday I start my day with Coffee and Conversation. I was only joined by one guest Heidi, we had the usual cannabis conversations as well as talking about my first almost six months in office. Want to hear more? Join me next Thursday!

A major topic for the Mendocino Business and Government Leaders meeting was the extended unemployment. With people receiving an additional $300 per week in Federal Funds there aren't a lot of incentives to get back in to the workforce. Also the rise in cases is very concerning as people begin to hear from the CDC that they can be maskless if they are vaccinated this is increasing the challenges to businesses that are trying to keep up with the regulations.

I also attended the EDFC meeting. They are trying to find applicants for the new team style leadership. One person has been hired and is attending meetings. One big challenge is making sure that everyone pays their loans. They have been getting at least the minimum amount from the applicants.

I also had a Western Hills conversation with a constituent that had concerns about the plans to subdivide and build houses near the base of the Western Hills. These addresses have been on the vacant and underutilized land list for the City of Ukiah for at least the last few years (2019), but it looks like the project is moving forward now. I'm sure there will be more details to come.

I attended the meeting of the Covid-19 Equity Group. The next big focus is making sure that youth are vaccinated and getting out the Spanish Language projects that the group had been working on. I'll share them when I see them.

Thursday night was also the IWPC meeting. You can read more about the concerns about the drought and the impacts on the power projects in Potter Valley and Lake Pillsbury here: https://mendoiwpc.com/iwpc-monthly-meetings/

 

Friday

There was very exciting Cannabis news in the Governor's May Revise, including Mendocino County getting $18 million dollars. There will be more to come about how this money can be used but it will be helpful. That wasn't the only good thing for Mendo we are going to keep our eyes on funding for drought projects, homeless housing and green energy.

I also spent time to review the Planning Commission meeting and Ellen Drell interview on KZYX Corporations and Democracy of course both of these were about cannabis.

 

Saturday

On Saturday Supervisor McGourty and I went to Potter Valley. We heard from Fire Chief Bill Pauli and Sherri and Bre from the Potter Valley Community Center. Many of the residents in attendance had the same concerns around fire safety and warnings and a place to gather after a fire or during a PSPS etc. We continue to have the conversation around communication. How do we get the word out for these types of meetings.

 

Sunday

I'm sure that you all saw the Measure B letter from Sheriff Allman. I am looking forward to the BHAB, Measure B and BOS meeting on May 24th. Its really important that we are all on the same page if we are going to move our community through the Mental Health crisis.

The Ad-hoc for the Move 2030 project had a meeting to discuss the current proposal and the expectations before the Board meeting.

We also had a Covid Update meeting with Dr Coren. Case numbers are on the rise and we need to get more people vaccinated.

 

Monday

I had a call with the new landscape supervisor for CalTrans District 1 to discuss landscape safety this fire season. I also had a follow up meeting with Uma Hinman from LAFCO to discuss the path forward for the Policies and Procedures Committee.

 

Tuesday

Today was the Outreach Partners Meeting. This is an opportunity for all of the service providers that serve the community can discuss CalFresh and the options available. Pandemic EBT has been helpful for those with school age children.

I had a behind the scenes tour of the new Holiday Inn Express on Airport Park Blvd! 94 rooms, outdoor patio and pool, breakfast nook and event space. It should be a nice addition for tourists to the Ukiah Valley.

 

As always you are welcome to join me on Zoom or call with questions 707-391-3664. This weekly update is not every single thing I do in a week but a summary of the meetings that I attend in case people are interested in a topic they can ask for more information.

 

Have a wonderful evening!
