want the county to open up land for subdivision development outside the cities slo more single-family tract homes can be built," he said. "TBese houses will sell for $400,000 and up, and won't help reduce the shortage of loW and moderate income housing in the county." Grabill said that in addition to coming up with more and better sites for multi-family housing, the county may want to consider other programs to encourage developers to build multi-family housing. He pointed to two programs one in Napa County where the adopted housing element includes an innovative sharing arrangement with the cities of American Canyon and Napa. "In order to preserve rural and ag areas, the county transferred about half of its regional share of lower income housing needs to the two cities, along with a promise of money to subsidize construction of the units at up to $40,000 per unit so they would be affordable to both low- and very low-income households," he said. And in December 2004, Sonoma County adopted a strong inclusionary zoning policy requiring developers to build one affordable unit for every four units of market rate housing, he said.

"In developments of less than five units, the developer could pay a substantial 'in lieu fee' instead of building a unit on the same site," he said. "The county also adopted a strong 'jobs housing linkage fee' requiring commercial and industrial developers to help fund housing development for the work force of the new commercial or industrial development." Grabill wouldn't comment on whether he felt HELP had a case, but he did say counties like Humboldt are in a real bind. "They need to provide sites for subsidized high-density housing because fewer and fewer families can afford to buy market rate houses," he said. "But rezoning land especially for multi-family development is always going to be controversial, time-consuming and expensive. Still, if they don't do it, they put an added burden on the existing housing stock." That could have bad disastrous effects, he Said.

"More families will have to live in overcrowded and substandard conditions, or live farther and farther away from their workplaces," he said. "Building new subdivisions outside existing urban areas is quite profitable for developers, but it's very costly for local governments which have to provide police and fire protection, schools and other services." That's where Humboldt County may have gone wrong. "Humboldt County tried to avoid this bind by telling HCD that sites were available which were, in fact, he said. "It's good that HCD is not letting the county slide by on this important requirement. "But in fixing the housing element, the county should also look for more long-range approaches like a strong inclu- sionary ordinance and fees on commercial development so that funds will be available to build some real housing units on the sites." 36 cfs Outflow: 87 cfs .015 ppm (.25 ppm) Cultivator Continued from Page 1 property back and as soon as they were served with the papers, they charged me," he said.

"What they want to do is scare me." According to Vroman, Crane is being charged for illegally cultivating marijuana to enforce the law, which has nothing to do with scare tactics. "These are tactics that we use when we think someone is breaking the law and I guess the best place to sort that out is in the court room," Vrbman said. Crane will be in the Mendocino County Superior Court branch in Willits at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 2 for arraignment and said he plans on fighting the charges.

"Anyone that is a patient that would like to stand up, please join me and stand up the tyranny," Crane said. "It isn't a controlled substance to me. This is a medicine and those laws do not apply to patients." Quincy Crotner can be reached at The Ukiah Visit us online at: raised profile When your home more than a commodity roof.
