It is important that cycling becomes safer within the city limits. Families in Parkland Farms, for instance, would like to send their children to school by bicycle. But they are worried about the safety of the routes, and they are right. Healdsburg Avenue from the north to the south end of the city needs to be upgraded to a major bicycle route, since it is the most direct and the least hilly route to the schools. Step one is to create a dedicated bicycle lane with more signs indicating that cars and bicycle share the road and parking in bicycle lanes is prohibited.

If you are unsheltered or marginally sheltered in Healdsburg, these are a few of the options available to you. There is no emergency shelter, no safe or sanctioned encampment, no option that provides safety, security, or a sense of belonging to those of us who have lost our affordable housing, whatever the reason.

Last Fall I interviewed council candidate Tim, a gentle, wise and positive force for collaborative change. With buoyant enthusiasm he shared his ‘Residents First’ platform. We summarize it here along with citizens’ comments.“I admired Tim’s maturity, especially evident as he faced adversity. The style of it made him a generous man, committed and steadfast in his service to the common good. We need his leadership, his example. Tim’s passing is a great loss to the Healdsburg community. We will miss him.”—John Diniakos. A management consultant for 20 years, Tim had unique qualifications for creating alliances, bringing diverse groups together to cooperate and make decisions on tough issues.

There are many inexpensive treasures hidden in plain sight in our wonderful Sonoma County. The Healdsburg Museum and Historical Society is one local gem that offers free time travel to visitors and locals alike.The Museum is located in Healdsburg’s former Carnegie Library, a National Register Historic Landmark, which was designed by noted Bay Area architect Brainerd Jones and built in 1911. “Roots of Healdsburg Wine Agriculture” opened May 23 and will be on display through November 10. This exhibition focuses on what makes this place special as a wine growing region and the forces that shaped the early wine industry from the rancho era to the first winery in Healdsburg and the growth of an industry up to Prohibition.

On Monday night, March 18th, an Appeal was heard by the Healdsburg City Council. Filed by a dozen concerned citizens, this appeal was asking our locally elected officials who have broad, comprehensive powers regarding Land Use matters, to review an approval made by their appointed Planning Commission in a 4:2 vote with one abstention, the Planning Commissioner who is the builder/contractor of the project. The appeal was denied by the City Council:  5:0. The Citizen’s Appeal was an effort to “Save Our Plaza” from an intense use project. How would this building, created for a 318 seat, three- story restaurant with a rooftop bar, a 100 wine wall, and two luxury penthouse condos impact our already problematic downtown parking, the traffic congestion, our small retail businesses on the Plaza, an already-crisis-level shortage of restaurant workers and affordable worker housing, and, even more unmeasurable, our historic Plaza Park area?  To be clear, the City Council “may affirm, reverse or modify, in whole or part, the project approval. The Council may also make or substitute additional decisions or determinations as it finds warranted.” (Land Use Code, 20.28.085 E.2)
