With no fanfare or public comment, the Ukiah City Council has adopted its new  Downtown Zoning Code, which is designed to streamline the development process in the core of city.

Senior Planner Kim Jordan said the code will go into effect 30 days after formal adoption.



The Fort Bragg City Council has agreed to continue working on a specific plan for the former Georgia Pacific mill site and also continue to utilize the Polanco Redevelopment Act to ensure that future property owners will not be liable for cleanup of any contaminants that may be found after it sells.

City Manager Linda Ruffing said:"Those immunities can help remove the stigma of cleaned-up property " 

 the City has about $2.5 million in obligations and there is a considerable amount of redevelopment planning to be done.

Ruffing said costs came to about $675,000 to continue administering the Polanco Act process and $710,000 for completion of the specific plan.

"Hopefully, the redevelopment funds will be available for that," she said. "We also have the opportunity to recover costs through a specific plan fee. That's a cost recovery, we'd still have to provide the costs up front. 


Yesterday, Mendocino DA David Eyster revealed to the Judge  evidence that shows that Norbury's intent to prevent his estranged wife from divorcing him led to his motive for allegedly killing his Redwood Valley neighbor, Jamal Andrews.

 "It will show motive ... and malice aforethought," Eyster told the judge.

The evidence includes two voicemails Norbury left for his estranged wife just days before he allegedly killed Jamal Andrews, along with a  a statement Norbury's wife wrote in a request for a restraining order. 

"He used to accuse me of having something to do with a guy up the road,'" Eyster said, reading the words of Norbury's wife, Brittany Norbury, in court before the jury was seated.

Eyster argued that those words, coupled with the angry voicemails , indicate that the shooting was part of Norbury's efforts to intimidate his wife, who had filed for divorce in February 2011.

In question is whether the evidence is protected as privileged communication between a married couple.

Behnke said he could allow the evidence on the record "if I'm convinced it was part and parcel with a program to intimidate Brittany Norbury, or if other evidence supports a finding that the statements weren't intended to be confidential."

On Thursday, Oct. 25, at 6:30 p.m., Mendocino Department of Planning will hold the fourth in a series of community meetings to discuss the Mendocino Town Plan Update. The meeting will be held at St. Anthony's Parish Hall, 10700 Lansing Street, Mendocino.

The purpose of the fourth meeting is to review a draft of the updated and revised Town Plan and receive input and feedback from the community. Planning staff will be present to provide information on the process, the proposed revisions, and to listen to the public's ideas regarding the draft. 

The revised draft will be available online by Oct. 15 at





Two disaster preparedness events this month will focus on readying Lake County citizens for an emergency situation.

The second annual Disaster Expo takes place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lakeport Mendo Mill & Lumber, located at 2465 S. Main St.
