    8105 new residents in 10 years.

    And that is just in the incorporated areas of the county.

    I was at the first Ridgewood Village meeting years ago. I remember the speaker saying something to the effect of, “It’s a fact. These people have to live somewhere,” and the audience nearly lynched him. Near the end of the meeting, the community forest was mentioned and this one hippie chick in a sea of Republicans got this confused look on her face because she’d totally bought into the NIMBY fear mongering.

  15. Bed Tax Data
    March 10, 2011 at 9:35 am

    The entire unincorporated area accounts for approximately 24% of the bed tax collected in all of Humboldt County. Eureka accounts for 44%

  16. March 10, 2011 at 9:48 am

    And Boomers are just NOW starting to retire. Expect a larger population increase over the next ten years. As to our economy, it was said in yesterdays TS that had we still been primarily timber dependent, our economy would have taken a bigger hit during this recession, but with the decline of timber our economy has become more diversified. Of course retired Boomers don’t need jobs, since they are retired, but they will contribute to the local economy, more so if the businesses where they spend their money are locally owned.

  17. longwind
    March 10, 2011 at 9:52 am

    I think what Ernie meant is that SoHum provides 80 percent of the bed tax raised from unincorporated Humboldt, about $600,000 a year last I saw a couple years back.

    Eureka’s population grew over the last 10 years, fell the last couple of years.

    Does anyone know how to create figures for the McKinleyville and Garberville Community Services Districts? All we need is a non-existent key to census districts, perhaps on a usable county web site? Does anyone do fed sites?

    I did not say wealth is concentrated at the bottom. I never said that wealth is not concentrated at the top. Your comprehension skills are sorely lacking.

    What I DID say is that our progressive tax system is a wealth distribution system. It does take wealth from the top and it does give it to the bottom. You can argue that it doesn’t go far enough or that it goes too far. But it is pointless to try and assert that it doesn’t.

    To say that it doesn’t redistribute wealth tells us that you haven’t even the foggiest idea of how the tax system works.

    Based on the actual numbers showing that the county is indeed growing in population, the question is how and where do we accommodate current and future growth?

    And given the aging population (and the issue that Richard raised of retiring boomers) coupled with the fact that gas prices will keep rising, we might want to think about building homes that will be closer to stores, schools and public transportation rather than spreading development out like what has happened around Fortuna, Eureka and McKinleyville.

    We can make our urban areas better while preserving farms, forests and opportunities for those living a truly rural lifestyle.

    anadromous, we don’t need to accomodate anything but making what’s already here better for everybody who’s already here.

    In related ‘Humboldt County Population’ and Times-Standardnews today Eureka City Councilmember Lance Madsen speaking to the Humboldt County Taxpayer’s League “wants in on Ridgewood Village discussions,” as noted by recent reporter Ahron Sherman’s article
    that can be quickly found here.

    …While 9 year veteran Humboldt County Senior Planner Martha Spencer weighs in with informed opinion correcting the General Plan Update record with the opening salvo:

    As you may recall, I submitted a My Word piece just over a year ago aiming to correct misinformation that was circulated by a local property rights group about the process of updating the county’s General Plan and the nature of the proposed policies.

    Recent public testimony before both the Humboldt County Planning Commission and the Eureka City Council included considerable misinformation about the process that again calls to be corrected publicly…

    1950 Eureka population was 22,962, 1954 estimated population 26,000 as per Polk’s Eureka City Directory. This doesn’t look like too much growth for the city. Of course you need to account for the surrounding growth and the reluctance to actually be a part of the city due to politics I am sure. Come on Eureka give us a reason to be. It would be the best for all concerned if this could be accomplished, think of all the money saved by eliminating duplications of agencies.

    69er, I’m with you on cutting back senseless duplications of agencies, but locally there’s enough difference in how surrounding area’s are (should be) governed.

    Asking for incorporation is one of those “be careful what you wish for” things…as far as teh state and federal governments are concerned (and many local developers), the entire coastal plain from rio del to trinidad could “accomodate growth” until it looked like San Jose or Vallejo or Richmond or…pick pretty much any 50 mile stretch of urban coast. Paved to death, three stories tall everywhere, homogenous and no longer capable of being what Humboldt is and could become.

    March 10, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    skippy, thanks for the reference info. I’m sorry to say Martha Spenser isn’t correcting anything, but repeating misleading information. When Martha says “They seem to believe the public input on the GPU from the 185 community meetings and 72 Planning Commission meetings held over the past 12 years should be ignored,” what *she* ignores is that only views in accord with those of Humboldt’s permanent government were invited, accepted or acted upon from any of those many pointless meetings.

    As I and others have described here and elsewhere, predeterminations were made about policy options before the public heard a word, more than 185 meetings ago. At the Samoa Cook House Forestry session where most of us had our first General Plan Update experience in 2000, the vast majority of more than 100 people present were quite vocally upset to learn that the county didn’t care what we wanted, because it was different from what they had already decided on (Plan A, without a name yet).

    On a related wrong track, Martha also asserts that it was legal for the county to throw out the entire public participation component of our current General Plan, which was done without public process, though that was specifically illegal.

    Yes, the Planning Department did get the Board of Supervisors to illegally erase pages of language that mandated working with the public. That didn’t make it legal for county staff to violate our county Constitution, it simply made the Board of Supervisors complicit in violating it.

    With this in mind we can follow discussion of public participation in the weeks ahead. As usual, there’s a whole different story that what we read, and more and more people know it.

    If anyone really wants the backstory without BS, the good citizens who actually wrote the book on public participation, and have been on this issue for 30+ years, are Dan Taranto and Peter Childs. They’re in the phone book.

    A woman asked why the GP process was taking so long…Madsen said NOTHING about having voted to delay it further, JUST LAST WEEK!

    A man asked why city representatives don’t bother attending ANY of the GP hearings or element workshops, Madsen replied that it’s of no use, since “they tend to conduct business throughout these events and you can’t be heard”. (Spoken by someone NEVER in attendance!!!).

    Another question concerned the Eureka Community Plan that the Ridgewood developers are following TO THE LETTER.
    Madsen said NOTHING about his involvement with this document as a city councilman 1990-1998, except that they “REALLY NEED A PLAN NOW”. No comment on any details of that plan.

    So far, the good old boys interests were being served, to hell with infrastructure limitations!

    HumCo death rate is about 950 per 100,000 So around 1200 a year die here.

    The birth records show about 1500 a year.

    So, my estimate is that annually 300 more people are being born here than die here. But why does that number matter unless you’re xenophobic?

    It doesn’t mean those births/deaths are among some more worthy “local people” in the sense that TimH is likely interested in. A tourist in a car crash is a death and a birthing woman who came to be near her family is a birth. A more interesting statistic IMO is the numbers of people who move into and move out of HumCo, people who are ‘voting’ with their feet.

    Taxed,
    I disagree with your “statistics”. From my observation, it has been the opposite. Seems that there is an increase in younger working folks moving to Eureka due to housing prices that are more affordable than elsewhere.

    As for “dependent people”… dependency is a result of a failed economic system that ships jobs overseas for the sake of a measly buck.

    This is the same system that gives handouts to oil executives and industrial ag, while people’s pensions are robbed and collective bargaining rights are taken away.

    This is the same system that operates on the notion of infinite growth without immediate regard for the fact that we live on a finite world with limited resources.

Unfortunate because the town lost a great family. If they had just hung there a little longer things changed for the better. It improved in the neighborhood when the new Police Chief got here.

    Okay ¨Hi Finance¨, all half jokes aside. I attended private conservative schools K-12, then I acquired a college degree. Then I worked in the finance industry for nearly ten years. In December 2005 I composed an analysis regarding the coming RE bubble based on something I learned in Banking 101, that is ¨Rate = Risk¨. Hard working people with good credit, two years stable income documentation, and a down payment were receiving about a fixed rate six percent home loan then. People with lousy credit, less than stable income history (or undocumented history), and little or no down payment were obtaining ARM loans with introductory teaser rates which would be adjusting upward in three to five years. The nut of my analysis was ¨rate does not equal the risk here, we are flooding the market with money, prices will temporarily skyrocket, then the bubble will burst, foreclosures will ensue, and prices will fall.¨ Period. I called it. And I am only a smart fifth grader. But the chain upward from me was a bunch of greedy bastards who cared more about immediate profits than America´s economy. You, my friend, remind me exactly of those greedy bastards. Worse, you try to present yourself on this blog as some sort of Professor of economics. But I know that you and lots of those scumbags on Wall Street care much more about your personal profits than the American economy. You shamelessly boast of buying repos and benefiting from the near bankruptcy of America AND from the misfortune of you fellow Americans who bought into the greatest scam since snake oil. So I half tease you because you are low hanging fruit and I half chastise you because you are a part of the park of wolves whose so called ¨economics¨ have nearly bankrupted America.

    So let me be clear. You, Sir, are a charlatan and I think setting America up for misfortune thorough sub-moronic lending policies and THEN profiting from said misfortune is absolutely despicable. I only wish I could meet you and I could look you in the eyes and tell you what a miserable scoundrel you are. You and your ilk did to America what external enemies could not do, nearly bankrupt America.

    Thank you for your insight at 1:18, Longwind, and relating the rest of the corrected story, in addition to Taxpayer’s 1:38 comments of attending the recent League meeting noting the lack of Eureka City’s involvement with the General Plan Update, Housing Element, and the Ridgewood Village plans. The firsthand information you both imparted is rarely, if ever, covered in the news and is important.

    A reminder note for a few reading the stats of population growth (or loss, as in Ferndale’s case; Ernie also wryly noted Garberville falling off the face of our chart seemingly into a puff of smoke): the population rates and overall County growth of 6.4%, as Heraldo noted, is over a 10 year Census period, from 2000-2010, and not annually.

    Yours truly also appreciated Anonymous’ @5:25, not usually hearing positive remarks regarding law enforcement or Police Chiefs when crime is prevalent. Thank you. What neighborhood or city would that be, Anonymous?

    We could all probably agree that those numbers are only going to increase more dramatically with each new Census.

    Hi Finance…I don’t agree (of course) that you can equate leisure with homelessness. I see leisure as a time to contemplate one’s work, and it’s usually something to be enjoyed. Here’s another idea from wikipedia….

    “A distinction may also be drawn between free time and leisure. For example, criticism of consumer capitalism by ‘Situationist International’ maintains that free time is illusory and rarely free; economic and social forces appropriate free time from the individual and sell it back to them as the commodity known as ‘leisure’.”

    See High? Even with free time the homeless can’t afford “leisure.”

    TimH, Sorry, the reason I guessed you’re xenophobic is I thought you wanted to know WHERE the people living here now were born, as if it matters. Well, it doesn’t and why should it?

    As far as the number of people moving in and out, that isn’t tracked because its unfettered. The number I calculated isn’t any good for that purpose. People in the US have freedom to move without needing any kind of official permission and the census counts only where they are right now.

    I expect a much much larger number of people are circulating through here than the net gains/losses. But I have no numbers. I think a lot could be learned about what this place is and what makes it that way by knowing their motivations for coming and going.

    The census numbers aren’t really important when it comes to county planning right now. Knowing Humboldt today vs. ten years ago (and even ten years before that), there’s no evidence of any need to explode with new infrastructure. If anything, slow down growth (that is an option, ya know). Fix up what we’ve got…less is more. Resource use/distribution improves, space is maintained, everybody’s value goes up. Seems like a no-brainer, if the idea is to build a strong community, figuratively as well as literally. Gas prices just shot up, the wake of that hasn’t even started to hit everybody’s cost of living.

    Only real estate interests would push a need to “accomodate growth” in a place like Humboldt…it’s socially and politically ridiculous to consider dumping everybody’s time and money into right now.

    The Humboldt Fire Protection District #1 surrounds Eureka from Indianola on the north to Freshwater to Fields Landing on the south. Approximately 40 sq. miles and 25,000 plus residents. This might give some idea.

    Spot on, Sam and Retired Guy. The current attacks on the wages of what is left of the middle class makes their goal of sucking up the small amount of wealth they don’t already own crystal clear. They just have to bankrupt the pesky public employee sector with the added benefit of eliminating the competition for the best employees – and at bargain basement prices. They profited while deliberately wrecking the economy and now are profiting from the fire sales. Great patriots, no?

    It’s a joy to read so many intelligent posts that banish HiFi…like garlic to a vampire. As usual, expect his conceit to force his trademark childish insult as a losing volley.

    Ask anyone who served in the Census administrative office in Eureka, and you’ll soon learn how the Census numbers are about as accurate as the ridiculous unemployment figures.

    Our hills are awash in buildings visible from space, not listed as official addresses. With the second highest “NARFU” rates in the U.S., (non-respondents) second to Alaska, there are thousands uncounted.

    They’re living near their water-sources, pulling out every drop for man made lakes, trout farms, Olympic pools, orchards, misc. agriculture, and pot.

    An unbroken legacy of human behavior continuing unabated, forever.

    The pot farmers were the friendlies…it was the wacky red necks on ATV’s that rushed out with their guns.

    Silly “Been There”. Any excuse to attack me ?

    If you stopped smoking your pot long enough you would have noticed that there are several others posting here whose POV is opposite of yours.

    HiFi’s more fun after he’s had his morning Hi-Ball.

    The homeless are “rich in leisure.”

    Hilarious.

    I didn’t say that Mr Been There. Go back and read it again.

    Random Guy said it.

    And where exactly did Random Guy write that the homeless are rich in leisure???

    Go have another Hi-Ball and come back and lie better.

    TimH Finally I found HumCo numbers for births/deaths/net migration by race/ethnicity. The California Dept. of Finance compiles those statistics. I’m going to post some more on the new thread.

    The bottom line for 2000-2008 is:

    Numbers of White people was flat, but tmay now be increasing. There were more deaths than births. White population increased strongly due to in-migration until 2004. White population peaked in 2004 and fell back to flat by 2008.

    Black population is flat, on a tiny base of only 1,000 people.

    Asian population is declining.

    Native American population is increasing strongly.

    Hispanic population increased strongly until 2005 and became flat.
