Minutes of April 2021 PDC Meeting

Present:  Brian Murtha, Judy Geer, Franco Picarella, Matthew N, Lee Brokaw, Randa Solick, Nora Hochman, Joy Hinz, James Mulherin, Brett Garrett, Janet Yett, Ed Porter

Guest Speaker: Lenny Siegel, former Mt. View city council member and progressive activist, spoke on the topic of housing crisis in Mt. View, associated with high rents.  He reported approximately 300 people are living in vehicles in the streets, some of these employed; safe parking in several church parking lots (these "oversized vehicles" must be moved during the day);  the current city council wished to prohibit parking/sleeping in vehicles in the streets. Three parking lots were agreed upon and these accommodated 70 oversized vehicles. Current considerations:  Shoreline amphitheatre parking lot; converting a hotel into housing (neighbors opposed); tiny homes on an abandoned bus parking lot; and government camps such as the model described in Grapes of Wrath.

Mt. View has raised the percentage requirements of new construction to include 20% affordable units.

Members asked questions and reported on these issues: further decisions to be made on dues payment following the change to January as month dues; progressive action; recruiting young people to the PDC; city government and reaching out to other groups (may form committee); meetings will continue to be via zoom; there may be some outdoor meetings; PDC Facebook page; and the layoff of 9 cooks from county jail (Sandra & Nora will draft a letter to Jim Hart).

The meeting adjourned at 7:50PM
