The ornaments on the giving Tree have a story. Each one has a gift request from a shelterless person of Healdsburg. Jersey, a shelterless man says “It’s nice to see that kids are being shown that just because we’re homeless, we’re still people. Most people don’t realize we sleep outside all year ‘round.”

On Oct 7, 2019 Healdsburg joined Petaluma, Windsor, Cloverdale and the County, along with 21 other California cities and 1,143 other local governments in 19 countries by recognizing that our changing climate is indeed an emergency; and declaring that government can play an important role in developing policy while empowering and incentivizing the business community, non-profits, and all residents to take action.

I hope that the Healdsburg City Council will address the threat of climate change by passing a Climate Emergency Resolution and developing a strong plan for its implementation.  Across Sonoma County, an online petition has been launched to encourage elected officials to declare a Climate Emergency. If you would like to add your name to the petition, please do so at  Search for  “Support Equitable Climate Emergency Action in Sonoma County”   and join almost 2500 signatories as of September 22. According to the Climate Mobilization Project, 221 million people across the world are now represented by more than 1000 local governments that have declared a Climate Emergency. Over 7000 colleges and universities have also joined the struggle. You can also write the members of the City Council or better yet, attend the October 7 meeting and let them know why you think this is urgent.

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.
