The topic was the land use element of the General Plan Update, focusing on agricultural lands and timber.
Crickets as usual from the Times Standard. I hope the Sohum papers had people covering it.
I had a radio show last night or I would have attended. If anybody has a report I’ll be happy to post it, regardless of your perspective.
Addendum: There was some discussion of last night’s meeting on Thank Jah this morning. The first or second caller came on to say that Clif Clendenen, Mark Lovelace, and David Cobb had personally attacked Tom Grover and Bonnie Blackberry, and accused them all of corruption. Despite Owl’s best efforts to get the caller to elaborate, it was never clear that he was even talking about the GPU or specifically what had happened last night. Unfortunately then someone called in after that caller to bring up nothing in particular and they all engaged in about 20 minutes of quasi-religious psychobabble. Then Granny Greenjeans called in with a fresh warning about global warming. And then Tom Grover himself called in and clarified that he hadn’t been attacked last night, and admitted that he had been a bit emotional. He then layed out his case which was to acknowledge the good intentions of groups like Healthy Humboldt but to lament that they don’t recognize all the good stewardship practiced by homesteaders and to state opposition to the GPU conversion of Ag designated land to rural residential (which is interesting since I’m pretty sure that RR designation is less restrictive than Ag Exclusive).
Anyway, if you want to hear the show it’s archived. (And for the two readers who emailed questions about my conversation with Shane Brinton last night, you can also listen through the link, but no, we did not integrate a discussion of the GPU into our topic of socialism).
