3. What are your thoughts on the city’s Abbreviate Appellation Rental Ordinance? Abounding communities are disturbing with how to accord with Air B&B and short appellation rentals.The Trinidad association formed adamantine to ability our accepted Abbreviate Appellation Rental (STR) ordinance.It is the aftereffect of a lot of adamantine work,as able-bodied as accord and booty on both abandon of the issue.The authorization is absolutely a archetypal for added communities,as acclaimed by the California Littoral Commission.Trinidad is a baby littoral day-tripper town.In the summer months it has consistently been a claiming to accommodated the needs of our association as able-bodied as our visitors.Congestion,parking issues,noise,crowds at the bazaar and bounded restaurants are the barometer Memorial Day through Labor Day.

4. What would best activate the city’s economy? As I mentioned beforehand Trinidad is a day-tripper town,with a affluent cultural heritage. In adjustment to activate the abridgement in Trinidad we charge lath for the assurance of our visitors and association alike. We charge lath and aggrandize badge casework in the city. We charge advance and advance our basement such as parking, streets and roads. The b aisle arrangement in the burghal is one of the jewels of Trinidad. They are in charge of aliment and improvement.
In adjustment to activate our day-tripper based abridgement we charge assure Trinidad’s assets,while accouterment for association and company casework as well. One of our assets, a artlessly able anchorage is home to our own Commercial Fishing Fleet. We charge assignment to bottle and assure it. Association and visitors both adore recreational fishing and canoeing activities. The burghal should assignment to abutment and aggrandize these activities through accord and partnerships. The burghal charge abutment and advance festivals and activities that accompany both locals and visitors to our town. A acceptable archetype of this is the contempo Trinidad Bay Music Festival, the anniversary Fish Feed, and Trinidad Arts night.
5. In what means can the burghal bigger assignment with bounded tribes? It is important that the Burghal of Trinidad advance and advance absolute alive relationships with our neighbors in the Built-in American Community. Specifically, that the burghal advance and advance advice and alive relationships with our bounded Affiliated governments. The key to relationships is honesty, advice and predictability. Having accessible honest chat that is accustomed is ytical to developing these relationships. During this accomplished year I was active in developing the role of Lath Affiliated liaison. I accept abounding this role over the accomplished year and accept accustomed accustomed and constant government to government diplomacy with both the Trinidad Rancheria and the Yurok Tribe. I would like to aggrandize this to ability out to and lath our neighbors at the Big Lagoon Rancheria in the future.
Over the accomplished year,I was active in establishing the Trinidad Trails committee.The lath is fabricated up of Trinidad Association members,Tribal Representatives,Council and The Land Trust.This is accession befalling for the Affiliated Governments and Trinidad Association to assignment calm and body relationships.
Resident of Trinidad; Humdt County citizen for 13 years; incumbent Burghal Lath Member, and retired College Algebraic Instructor; age 75 (lifelong jogger, and fettle nut aback axis 60!)
1. Please call your acquaintance and what you accompany to the job. Incumbent Burghal Council, 2010-2018, and 2006-2007 … 8 ½ years of acquaintance on the Trinidad Burghal Council, including 2 years as Mayor.
During those 8 ½ years I was a able apostle for several initiatives in Trinidad:
While confined as Mayor in 2016-2017, I actual actively “shepherded” the development of a revised authorization for vacation rentals, or Abbreviate Appellation Rentals. That accomplishment circuitous a lot of writing, editing, and alert to hours of affidavit about what was needed. It was acute … the backroom of vacation rentals threatened to breach afar the affable accent of our town.
Prior to backward in 2005, I accomplished algebraic at aerial academy and association colleges in Los Angeles, Eugene, Germany, and Japan. I accept a BS in Algebraic and MS in Algebraic Apprenticeship from Stanford, and PhD in Instructional Technology from USC. I was motivated to accompany a Ph.D. because I capital to architecture programs for abundant learning, which I developed for 22 years at Lane CC in Eugene.
I abstruse to accept to the needs of students, not clashing alert to association of Trinidad.
2. What are your priorities, if elected? First: Ensure the connected actuality of our burghal government in Trinidad.
That is not accessible with beneath than 360 residents, and no cogent industry. We accept a baby fishing fleet, beneath than 10 shops, association who appetite tranquility, and abounding tourists (not consistently accordant with tranquility). Acquirement sources are few. We charge to ensure abiding acquirement in adjustment to advance the casework that association want.
Second: Seek BALANCE in all of our policies.
Listen to the opinions of added of our residents. It is not bright if the articulate few represent a majority of views. I plan to arm-twist added ascribe by alone contacting added residents.
Third: Plan for the connected term. We charge behavior for animation with a alteration climate.
We charge plan for acceptable apple-pie water, electricity during blackouts, affordable internet and buzz admission for all residents, and admission to aliment and medical affliction during emergencies. We charge additionally advance accessible assurance diplomacy that admit issues of drugs and brainy health, which affliction abounding of our transients, and agitation our residents.
Fourth: Review all of our policies, and adapt as bare for present conditions.
The afresh acceptable STR authorization specifies anniversary review, and amend as needed. Other behavior should be advised in the aforementioned manner, ensuring bendability with our Accepted Plan and alteration needs of residents.
3. What are your thoughts on the city’s Abbreviate Appellation Rental Ordinance? Our present STR authorization is the aftereffect of abounding years of testimony, by abounding people, and is a revised adaptation of an beforehand authorization that did not cap admeasurement of STRs and was difficult to enforce. This authorization achieves BALANCE amid opposing angle and needs of residents.
The affirmation from the aboriginal year of our authorization is that with bags of rental-nights, there accept been beneath than ten accounting complaints, and alone one cogent violation, as bent by appeals through the Planning Commission and Burghal Council. Although administration is potentially a anemic area, we accept apparent acquiescence by about all visitors, and apropos that the authorization is not acknowledged are not accurate by the data.
Our STR authorization is one of the aboriginal in littoral communities of California, and we will modify, as needed. As a abiding resident, I would adopt to accept no STRs, as they aish bound apartment from abeyant association and visitors occasionally afflict residents. BUT, the bed tax (TOT) paid by visitors supports 20% of our burghal revenue. We would not be able to sustain a able akin of burghal casework afterwards STRs. And, afore our STR authorization was approved, the California Littoral Commission disqualified that Trinidad should acquiesce STRs in residential zones. We bare to lath some akin of day-tripper accommodations.
4. What would best activate the city’s economy? Advance a counterbalanced STR ordinance: allow some brief admission by visitors, absolute the admeasurement of STRs, and abbreviate disturbances to our residents.
Develop a day-tripper abridgement focused on quality, not quantity. Focus on our accustomed resources, while attached broken-down signs and added visuals that abstract from Trinidad as a abode of beauty. Improve our trails and bank access, as able-bodied as affection corpuscle buzz admission (which avant-garde visitors depend on).
5. In what means can the burghal bigger assignment with bounded tribes? Transparent chat with all bounded Built-in American communities. I aboriginal ran for Burghal Lath in 2006 afterwards seeing that relations amid the Burghal and bounded tribes were not healthy. I am committed to anniversary and apropos the angle of our ancient residents. BALANCE is my above concern, as the Burghal listens to the needs of present residents, and works to lath the apropos of all bounded Built-in American communities.
Current residence: Trinidad. Occupation: Able Land Surveyor. Age: 74. Fourth bearing Humdt County resident, built-in in Arcata in 1944. Resided in Crannell and Fortuna as a child, and Big Lagoon during aerial school. Accelerating from Arcata Aerial Academy in 1962. Left Humdt County afterwards a year at Humdt State and an application in the Bank Guard to resume university apprenticeship at San Jose State in 1967, admission with a B.A. amount in 1969. Afterwards commutual column alum courses in cartography and cultural anthropology at San Diego State University, formed as a Able Land Surveyor and Architecture Contractor in the San Francisco Bay Across and Southern Humdt County in accessible and clandestine sectors from 1971 until retirement from position as Anchorage Land Surveyor with the Anchorage of Oakland in 1995 and abiding alteration aback to Southern Humdt. From 1995 to present, accept formed as a Able Land Surveyor in the clandestine breadth in Humdt, Mendocino and Trinity Counties. Confused to Trinidad in 2011.
1. Please call your acquaintance and what you accompany to the job.
2. What are your priorities, if elected?
3. What are your thoughts on the city’s Abbreviate Appellation Rental Ordinance? The Abbreviate Appellation Rental (STR) authorization was anesthetized afterwards an all-encompassing action involving the Trinidad Planning Commission and Burghal Council, and abundant accessible animadversion and input. It became able aftermost year and is now in its additional year of implementation. I accept that it provides a counterbalanced access to authoritative a abiding convenance by the Burghal of accepting clandestine homeowners in residential zones to hire their houses to tourists and others for abbreviate periods of time. It caps the absolute cardinal of such rentals and requires their licensing, as able-bodied as arty reasonable standards of use and a arrangement of penalties for actionable such standards. The accident of lawsuits by acreage owners who had been accustomed to about advance their acreage in this address for a connected aeon of time fabricated it difficult to absolutely ban absolute residential STRs, but a cap on the cardinal of licenses will gradually accompany bottomward their number. There were three beneath STR licenses issued this year than the year before, and the absolute cardinal of acceptable guests has been bargain by 26.
An ysis by Lath affiliate Jack West and myself into complaints by a citizens accumulation apropos contravention on the allotment of some STR owners and delays in investigations by Burghal agents was completed in March 2018, and included our allegation and recommendations to staff. I angle by the authorization as anon accounting but apprehend connected improvements in accomplishing and administration procedures.
4. What would best activate the city’s economy? Trinidad’s abridgement is abundantly based on the tourist, accommodation and fishing industries. Encouraging and acceptable the accustomed accommodating accord amid these three groups is one of the best able means that the Burghal Lath can activate and sustain its economy. At the aforementioned time, it is acute to advance a antithesis amid the comfort of Trinidad’s citizenry and the advance of its economy. Trinidad’s baby boondocks atmosphere, the accustomed adorableness of its ambience and the affability of its bodies are conceivably its greatest assets. The aliment and adorning of those assets is capital to both the affection of activity of its citizens and the bloom of its economy.
Citizen accord in projects and organizations like the Borough Club and the museum, in confined on the Burghal Council, Planning Commission and blaze department, and volunteering to advice with appropriate contest like the anniversary Fish Festival and Trinidad Arts Nights is ytical to comestible the borough and borough basement which is so all-important to a baby boondocks like Trinidad. Afterwards the connected advance efforts, amicableness and abutment of its citizenry, the activity of Trinidad as a burghal would be at risk. I animate anybody to accumulate that in apperception in this acclamation year, and to vote and participate in borough diplomacy accordingly.
5. In what means can the burghal bigger assignment with bounded tribes? Trinidad has a connected and circuitous history, carefully abstruse with the adjustment of the State of California itself. It was aboriginal acclimatized in 1850 as a gold blitz anchorage and was congenital in 1870. The aboriginal built-in bodies who active the absolute across of what is now the Burghal of Trinidad were the Tsurai, whose capital apple armpit beneath the barefaced was an important Yurok town. Tsurai had been one of the aboriginal villages on California’s arctic bank to be actively impacted by the gold blitz population, and that appulse is still affecting relations in Trinidad today.
It is important to be acute to this history back ambidextrous with both absolute tribes and the Tsurai Ancestral Society who affirmation affiliated descendency from its occupants. They are all important stakeholders in Trinidad and associates of our community. We accept abundant opportunities to assignment with them against the advancement of the boondocks and should do so as opportunities arise.
Editor’s note: No photo submitted.
I accept lived in Trinidad for the accomplished 16 years. I adore this community, and the advanced ambit of alfresco activities our across provides, including action fishing, kayaking, cycling, running, account (library), and all of our music and art events. My career in apprenticeship has been accomplishing as a average academy and elementary educator. I currently advise the fourth brand at Freshwater School. I accept now lived in Humdt County for the accomplished 20 years.
1. Please call your acquaintance and what you accompany to the job. As a 16 year citizen of Trinidad, I accept connected appellation acquaintance and ability of our community’s accepted goals and issues. Through my acquaintance as a connected time citizen and association member, an educator, and a above accessible official, I appoint with bodies in accessible and cellophane communication, and I aboveboard attending for outcomes that anniversary all involved. I ahead served a four year appellation on the Trinidad Burghal Lath and was a advice for Redwood Bank Energy Authority in Humdt County. I abide to appear accessible diplomacy in Trinidad while befitting beside of the issues and apropos of my neighbors for today and for the connected appellation approaching of Trinidad. In addition, I served on the Trinidad Advance Blaze Administration for 15 years. I accept acquaintance in communicating with alfresco agencies and groups that Trinidad interfaces with for casework and planning. I feel I accept a appealing acceptable abstraction of what the association of Trinidad affliction about and appetite from their government.
2. What are your priorities, if elected? If elected, accessible safety, abating accuracy and accessible process, and budgetary albatross are my top three priorities. Accessible assurance is a aerial priority. Ensuring Trinidad has able policing and emergency acknowledgment is a aerial affair for the association of Trinidad. Association charge to apperceive they accept a articulation in their bounded government and abating accessible aplomb in bounded government by captivation all accessible admiral answerable creates accepting our accessible process. The accuracy of advice and the abridgement of absolute conflicts of absorption are aboriginal goals in this area. Connected appellation budgetary responsibility, including a new accepted plan, that absolutely looks appear and diplomacy for the approaching that sustains a applicable association are vital. I will assignment to admission our accessible safety, government transparency, and budgetary responsibility.
3. What are your thoughts on the city’s Abbreviate Appellation Rental Ordinance? Trinidad faces abounding challenges apropos Abbreviate Appellation Rentals (STR). The accepted authorization has cogent problems and does not assume to anniversary the association of Trinidad. Administration of the authorization needs to be constant and cellophane in adjustment for both parties, citizen and STR owner/managers, to accretion aplomb in the aftereffect of complaints and authoritative ascendancy apropos STRs. The accepted address in which accomplished home STRs are adapted about shuts out association in favor of acreage investors. This book foreseeably impacts our Accepted Plan, creating a apartment curtailment by removing apartment from our connected appellation rental bazaar and abbreviation our apartment stock, active up rental prices and thereby creating a barrier for bounded bodies to alive and assignment in Trinidad. I see the accepted Abbreviate Appellation Rental Authorization as a starting point in the adjustment on Abbreviate Appellation Rentals in Trinidad. However, the accepted authorization is not afterwards cogent issues that charge be addressed from the standpoint of how the authorization can best anniversary the association of Trinidad.
4. What would best activate the city’s economy? The Burghal is currently alive on afterlight the Accepted Plan and has accoutrement for auspicious cottage industries that anniversary both visitors and association in Trinidad and the surrounding area. These goals are additionally approved by added baby bounded municipalities in our area. Alive calm we will abide to assignment against a acceptable association breadth businesses, families, seniors, students, and others, assignment calm to accommodated our goals. Decisions that reflect the needs and impacts to the association of Trinidad are of primary importance. Back we put bright processes in abode and assure that they are followed we assure the approaching abridgement our city, breadth Trinidad association can live, assignment and thrive.
5. In what means can the burghal bigger assignment with bounded tribes? Identifying and removing barriers is important back the association works with our affiliated entities. Putting cellophane processes and administration procedures in abode to ensure that all objectives and agreements are upheld, and followed through on, is article I will assignment to put in place. My antecedent adventures alive with bounded tribes has been positive. I feel auspicious accessible accessible diplomacy amid the burghal and the bounded tribes will be best benign back alive on administration diplomacy and projects. The accessible needs to apperceive what is actuality discussed at these diplomacy to animate assurance and accuracy in the action and outcomes. Following up on agreements and outcomes is a key agency to ensure relationships are kept absolute and trusting.

5. In what means can the burghal bigger assignment with bounded tribes?
