Looking back, I always thought that grade 7 and 8 were some of my best years. I broke multiple track records, I became school president, I got involved in all the clubs at my school, I received good grades and I was finding a lot of success in Irish Dancing. On top of all that […]

On the Heels of Sakura

So much going on! I set out at about 7:30 after trying to position all my stuff on the bike. Now in Japan this is known as a mama-chari, a very common bike in Japan. It’s easy to pedal and can carry stuff, but does not absorb bumps well and is obviously not a sports […]

A grand opening will be held Friday for a new apartment complex on East Gobbi Street designed for some of the most vulnerable homeless residents of Mendocino County: people with severe mental illness. “I think I know some of the people who will be living here,” said 2nd District Mendocino County Supervisor John McCowen a year ago when ground broke on the project, describing the 38 apartments designated for “seriously mentally ill” adults who are homeless, or about to be, as a “dream come true. It’s hard to say you’re a compassionate society when you have individuals like this living on the streets.” McCowen also praised the project for not just offering homes, but “wrap-around services” provided by Mendocino County and Redwood Community Services so that the residents “can remain successfully housed.” Ukiah City Council member Jim Brown also praised the project this week. “I hope it will make a difference in our community, and I’m very impressed with the process they’ve enacted to ensure our local law enforcement doesn’t get burdened,” Brown said. “(The Ukiah Police Department) is like the fourth in line to get called, and usually won’t get involved unless it’s a serious criminal issue.” The project started five years ago as an idea presented by Michael Pallesen, the former director of development for the Rural Communities Housing Development Corporation, and CEO Brad McDonald thanked him for doggedly taking the project from “passionate inception” to the verge of reality. Pallesen said the buildings were designed by architect Philippe Lapotre, who created a similar complex in Humboldt County and said it was important to create a “sense of belonging” for the vulnerable residents. “Creating an intimate space is really what you need so people can hang out and feel protected,” said Lapotre, describing the plaza and garden spaces he surrounded the buildings with as providing that sense of connection and privacy. “You hear a lot that projects like these are a threat to the community, but I think the people living there are feeling more of a threat from the outside, and they really need spaces like these.” “It will be enclosed enough that the residents can have that sense of (belonging and security), but open enough that it won’t feel like a prison or an institution,” said Pallesen. “Hopefully it will be a place where they can feel at peace with the community, not at war with it.” The Grand Opening Ceremony begins Friday, April 19, at 11 a.m. and continues through 2 p.m. The complex is located at 237 E. Gobbi St., and was “a collaborative effort between RCHDC, Mendocino County Health and Human Services Agency Mental Health Services Act, Community First Credit Union and Enterprise (Tax Credit funding partner). Called Willow Terrace, it includes “small residences, group rooms, a garden, and a community area where residents can support each other and receive mental health care services on-site.”
