Weekly Update #16 - April 19, 2022

Hey friends! I’m Mo Mulheren Second District Supervisor for the County of Mendocino. Each week I put out a written report of the projects I’ve been working on and meetings I’ve been attending. This is a brief summary, or highlights if you will, just to let people know the topics that I am working on and if you are interested give you the opportunity to connect with me about these topics.

 

Once a month the Ukiah Main Street Program has a meeting for the Downtown merchants to discuss upcoming promotions and challenges that they may be having in the district. The Ukiah Downtown District is from Oak Street to Main Street and north to Norton Street, South to Gobbi Street. Unfortunately there will not be a Taste of Downtown next year they are hoping that they will get volunteers that would like to see this event come back attend meetings and start a committee. This event has been happening for decades and there are people for pro and con, from the sense of community and the window shopping to the con of it being called a “drunk fest”. Do you want to bring the Taste back? Reach out to Katrina and join the committee. There are great things happening this summer of course the First Friday Art Walk, Car Show, Sidewalk sales, Farmers Market etc. Take stroll and enjoy our Downtown.

Of course I was making sure to submit my Supervisors Report to the Clerk of the Board to be published with the agenda, that updates the Community with all of the work I’m doing on my assignments and ad hocs.

I did attend a Ukiah Earth Day Tire Amnesty planning meeting. This will be held in conjunction with the Ukiah Earth Day event at the Railroad Depot. Ukiah Valley residents can bring up to 9 tires to the event for recycling, they are instructed to enter from Clay Street and exit out of Perkins Street. The Ukiah High School Wrestling team will be assisting with unloading the tires. The City for Ukiah and Walk and Bike Mendocino will be providing painting projects and litter clean up opportunities for any residents that would like to join in. Visit the City of Ukiah Rec page for more info.

At the Transit Productivity Committee, which is a joint effort of MCOG Ad Hoc and MTA Ad Hoc to discuss any challenges we are having with public transportation. The major concerns persist, inability to hire qualified drivers and low public confidence in taking community transportation due to COVID concerns.

Every Thursday morning I start my day with something I call Coffee and Conversation. This is an opportunity for you to come and chat with me about whatever is on your mind. I am on Zoom at Meeting ID 7079548230 and Password LOCAL707

I joined the Inland Housing Action Team Meeting. They mostly discussed challenges to developers to build in California with lack of work force, expenses of materials and stringent regulations in California.

We had a meeting with Jared Huffman about Potter Valley Project, there were members from the water districts, the Supervisor Ad Hoc as well as the City of Ukiah Ad Hoc. There is still a lot in the air with the PG&E property, the needs of the Russian and Eel Rivers. Congressman Huffman stressed the need to collaborate with all of the parties. There were many questions about the studies to support restoration of Salmon and whether or not they would be successful in the water. I know you guys hate it when I say this but there will be more to come. Happy to discuss further just hop on to my Thursday meeting or give me a call 7073913664

I also went in to the Low Gap campus to review Chambers technology and see if I have concerns. But of course I did not.

 

Bright and early Friday morning we had a CDBG grant meeting to discuss scope of clean up in Covelo. Unfortunately we got about half of the grant so we will have to adjust the work plan and wanted to have a conversation with the partners so that everyone understood before the item went forward to the board on the Consent calendar next week.

Ok this is a personal thing but I wanted to just mention that I got to sub for Zumba at Young for Life. I mixed it up and did Country Fusion but there were about 15 differently abled adults learning how to boot scoot and electric slide their way to health and wellness. Although most of the folks do wear masks you could certainly see the smiles in their eyes.�� That’s not a Supervisor thing I just wanted to share something lovely that happened during my week.

 

On Saturday I went on a field trip to Fort Bragg to the Mitchell Creek Neighborhood to visit the cannabis project that was seeking a repeal of the Planning commission determination against their Cannabis Accommodating District. It helped me when reviewing the item to see the project on the ground as well as study the neighborhood at a ground level.

 

I hope you get to spend time with your family on Sunday for Easter.

 

Monday was a long day of Agenda prep to prepare for Tuesdays meeting. Tuesdays agenda as 1,663 pages of information so my process includes looking at the agenda items the day they come out (Thursdays) , throughout the weekend and then preparing the bulk of my notes and questions on Monday. Often times if I have a question I go directly to staff so if you ever have a question on an agenda item always feel free to pull the item during the public meeting or send me a text over the weekend and I’ll try to get you an answer.

 

As always these are just my notes on the board meeting and not the official public record.
