This was one of the more peaceful meetings I attended in June! It’s an update of what WILL happen and what is planned for the future.
The can’t happen yet aspect of the update is a sad case of funding that WAS available, but because the process took so long to approve, the money went away. On the bright side – if you really don't want something to happen – stall it long enough and it will go away. On the dark side…if you really want something to happen, you'd better be part of making sure it DOES happen, or it will go away and could take a VERY long time before it comes back – if ever. Just a thought.
The California Coast is so young to foreign invaders, we are just getting around to celebrating 200 years of occupation. I grew up on the east coast and that 200 year celebration was many decades ago. It’s a big deal to call some place “home” for 200 years.
When you first come to settle an area, you are an outsider. You may want to belong, but that takes time. The first generation establishes turf, the second generation has called this new place home all their life, so it's no longer foreign. By the time the first batch of kids grow up, they have no knowledge or recollection that there ever was another place called home.

Back in the spring, Bodega Bay residents were asked to increase their fire service tax assessment to meet budget limitations. At community meetings and on a community internet bulletin board, the issue was hotly debated. The end result was that the ballot measure was rejected. That put the local fire department into a serious financial situation.
Newest Segment of Bodega Bay Bike & Pedestrian Trail Opens to Public
Parks officials and community members gathered Thursday in Bodega Bay to open the newest segment of a larger pedestrian and bicycle route planned for the coastal village. The path dedicated by Sonoma County Supervisor Efren Carrillo and others is a .47-mile connection between the Bodega Dunes campground and the Bodega Bay Community Center and Children’s Bell Tower.
