Multi-family Housing Workshops this week in Redway, Eureka, McKinleyville

[A note from Healthy Humboldt.]

Greetings all,

The County is currently considering possible sites for multi-family housing, which can include apartments, duplexes, or a “live/work” mix of residential, office and retail space. Based on input from the public, the County has revised their list of candidate sites and will be holding a series of public workshops to discuss the details. These workshops will be an opportunity for community involvement in how best to provide a wider range of housing options for people who already live and work in our communities.

Community Workshop 1

When: Monday, June 6, 2011 from 6 – 8 p.m.
Where: Redway Elementary School 344 Humboldt Avenue, Redway

Community Workshop 2

When: Wednesday, June 8, 2011 from 6 – 8 p.m.
Where: Wharfinger Building – 1 Marina Way, Eureka – The Bay Room (downstairs)

Community Workshop 3

When: Thursday, June 9, 2011 from 6 – 8 p.m.
Where: Azalea Hall – 1620 Pickett Road, McKinleyville

    Would there be a need to build if 11 to 18 million
    illegal aliens were expelled from this country?

    Meanwhile John Shelter is presenting info to the Supes on the program to help homeless people living in camps with no bathrooms. Sad that there is so little compassion for the unfortunate ones who can’t afford to keep a roof over their heads.

    This is all about fighting off the builders that want to build despite the fact that they have built so many houses they can’t sell them. Builders wanting to keep their jobs. Builders build. They will build just to stay employed. No more houses needed? Too bad they will build anyway.

    Your logic seems a little off-kilter there 10:52. If nobody’s buying, then at some point nobody’s going to pay the builders. Builders, like most people, don’t like to work for free.

    Just what we need is to build housing for the homeless. Why don’t the taxpaying citizens just pick up and leave so the homeless can have our houses. Maybe John Shelter can get grant money to buy us out so he can turn Humboldt into the greatest homeless destination in the world. Shelter could topple Crandall as the King of freeloaders. Homeless vs welfare trash..

    Look at other towns and states that have built thousands of tract homes that they couldn’t fill. They had the Money to build.

    When the economy was booming, and financing was easy to get, developers built a lot of stuff “on spec.” Neither of those conditions exists right now.

    “Hpmrless versus Welfare trash” says Anonymus. We praise Betty Chin

    and curse John Shelter for working with the least of these; Do we care?????

  14. June 7, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    Anonymous equates Homeless and Welfare Trash. does he know any ?

    Illegal “Aliens!” The new “Jew,” the new scapegoat. Move over “Welfare Queen”, get out the way “Communist,” There’s a new kid in town. He’ll get the Republicans in office. Throw in some Drug-Killings for extra drama and the weak-minded fools will fall in step with their Aristocratic masters and promote the fear. Promote the hate.
    The Tea-Party/Republican-Nativist will offer only one platform; Finish stealing America’s wealth, and manufacturing; and get rid of those nasty “Illegals”
    Which works out great for the republican factory owners since they’ve moved all their factories to Asia and no longer have a need for so many workers. Just a few for around the house will do…..

    Moviedad: How you can equate the illegal “Aliens” as the new Jew shows
    just how little you understand the law.. The Jews, Germans, Irish and etc.
    migrated here legally. The illegal “Aliens” are costing this country millions
    and millions of dollars. Yes, they have taken American jobs. They are
    collecting with their anchor babies obscene amounts of welfare. They
    have even put public education at risk. They use the emergency rooms
    in hospitals for simple doctor visits. This doesn’t began to address the
    crimes they commit here.

    I am so tired of you bleeding heart liberals that haven’t a clue as to
    what is really going on. If you don’t like the fact corps. are sending jobs
    overseas than why don’t you start boycotting those corps. I do. Starting with
    B of A.

    What does the Carson Mansion have to do with this?

    Good point TimH what does the Carson Mansion have to with this. John Shelter probably wants to have it given to him for his freeloaders. Maybe trying to drum up envy against anyone with more than 2 dollars? Or is this saying that ONLY Eureka will have more low income housing crammed down it’s throat.

    Humboldt County is way behind on providing an adequate percentage of affordable multi-family housing when compared to other housing types. What the County needs to achieve here is to provide a variety of housing options for people to choose from.

    Regardless of immigration, our population (in the County and in the US) continues to grow. And there is an ever-increasing divide between the rich (who are getting richer) and the poor (who are…you know the story). Because housing in this country is valued as a commodity, based on market conditions, the smaller and more compact the housing is, the more affordable it is.

    As for the Carson Mansion, I am left wondering as well. Perhaps it is a commentary on the fact that this playground for the wealthy could be a pretty sweet coop-style house for people with a more moderate income. Or maybe it is saying that multi-family housing could be build with vernacular architecture in mind – it does not need to be ugly.

    The U.S. spent a century forcefully opposing every land-reform movement south of the border…then dumped our taxpayer subsidized beans, corn and rice on their markets.

    OF COURSE their starving people rushed here, into the welcome arms of America’s remaining businesses that could only dream of exploiting the peasants the U.S. manufactures abroad.

    Consider what American Native indigenous peoples thought when white man (illegal immigrant) entered upon another land with a bible in one hand and a musket in the other – now, America just sends weapons across the border to be used againts its own by others, no need to wonder if muskets will be in hand while wearing the cross takes the place of the “Bible in Hand”.

    Anyhow, America’s diversity is actually imperiled by illegal immigration. Why? Hmmm, I’ll go a different tact – over-population as compared to economics. Why again? Because those who FEEL that immigration (legal or not) benefits the economy don’t understand the “point of no return” when it comes to mass supply of humans with nothing productive to do. Further, where do people sleep, eat, pee and poop, whine, get emergencee-“ized”, get subsidized hand-outs, etc… for which much of the wealth created, generated or transferred and such go back over the border into another economy. Face it folks, diversity ain’t all cracked-up positive as politcs makes it out to be – American culture is being sabotaged by immigration for votes using economics as the ruse and guise method to dupe the citizenery legally living here. In actuality, cultures are better when separated, not combined. Soon enough, people will see what the yesteryear days of all things human trafficing and slavery has created – less cultural diversity and more cultural ideological conflicts. It ain’t good to continue to import people, as quality of life gets worse. Further, these immigrants are voting as if they still live in their former country – for the state to provide most everything. So many voters are too stuck on stupid in America, with greed usually being the #1 culprit that motivates a humanoid (usually consumers) to be MORE responsive as stupid, thus one acts more stupid.

    Ironic to see more blog posters having to eat their own words of denial of the truths being told to them.
