The City of Arcata is holding an open house on “Gateway Housing” on September 25th, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the D Street Neighborhood Center, on the university side of 101 at 13th & D.   

There will be a comment box for you to submit your views, suggestions, and ideas. All comments will be scanned and later presented to the City Council, the Planning Commission, and the public.

The flyer announcing this open house informs us:

“Your story matters! If you have a house or want a house in Arcata, you probably have some thoughts on housing.” (The irony here, of course, is that we are not likely to see any new actual single-family houses in the Gateway area. The housing there will be apartments and a small number of non-detached townhouses.)

“Come tell us your housing story and what you think Arcata should be doing in response to the housing crisis.”

Why I ask you for your name and e-mail address:

  1. All the entry information here is optional. You are not required to put in anything. You aren’t even required to put in your name.
  2. But — If you choose to put in your name and e-mail address, then I will know that your entry belongs to you, and to you alone. Without an honest name and e-mail address, your information will not be regarded as valid and important. When presented to the Council, an entry without a name will not have the same weight.
  3. I ask you to please put in your name and e-mail address. You have my word:  No one will see this (other than me). It will not be used to sign you up to anything. It will not be forwarded or given to anyone. Your name and e-mail will be removed from anything I pass out or publish. If the results of these comments are challenged, it will be a way to verify that you are a real person.

    Your information will allow me to know that you are an individual person. And not just some kid or bot or local group who wants to “stuff the ballot box” and enter their comments a whole bunch of times.

  4. Entering your name and e-mail address is entirely voluntary. But it would help me, so I ask you for this. When you take a survey with Microsoft or Google or SurveyMonkey — they know who you are and they keep your data. What I am doing here is simple, and ensures that an outside corporation does not have your information. It requires your trust of me and your cooperation to make it work.

Any questions, please feel free to write to me — or just call. I’m a real person, living here in Arcata. Thank you!
