PAGE 4- WEDNESDAY, JULY 7, 2010 CLOVERDALE REVEILLE CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA A disheartened citizen responds to City Council&apos;s Economic Development Workshop Editor:. I was disheartened when I attended the City Council's Economic De- velopment Workshop on June 28. Rather than a discussion of how to fix obvious problems with the Cloverdale economy, Mayor Russell opened the meeting stating that the point of the meeting was to come up with a definition of "economic development." How many jobs, Madam Mayor, does a definition produce? For the last 30 years I have been involved in the Cloverdale planning and economic development discussion as Chairman of the Planning Com- mission, Chairman of the Economic Development Commission, and Chairman of the Citizens General Plan Review Committee. In those 30 years, I've heard enough fine words about the definition of economic development to fill an encyclopedia. Not one of those discussions have produced a single job in Cloverdale. Cloverdale's retail and service sectors are in the tank. That is because people who shop for goods and services do so where they work. Only the addition of living wage jobs in Cloverdale, the kind light industry creates, will get our retail and service industries going again. To produce jobs you need employers. To bring employers to Clover- dale you need facilities in which they can operate. Before you can con- struct facilities you need infrastructure. Private landowners cannot afford to install industrial infrastructure. The construction of infrastructure in Cloverdale's southwest area can only be accomplished with a public/ private effort. As I suggested to the City Council, if the City can spend a half million dollars on a City attorney each year, it can spend $100,000 on one employ- ee whose sole function is to create that public/private consortium. An economic development czar if you will. The City has repeatedly left its most important function, getting jobs back to Cloverdale, to well intention#d, underpaid amateurs. What we need is a highly trained, experienced, professional who has the contacts in government and industry sufficient to tap into the vast sums of Feder- al, State, and County money that is available for economic development. We need a person who has the proven experience, ability, and personality to be able to work with the landowners in southwest Cloverdale to create a public/private infrastructure project. Until the City commits itself to a focused, determined, professional approach to economic development, Cloverdale will continue to burn economically and we can all spend our time fiddling to redefine econom- ic development.

After much discussion and public comments there were a few comments that stood out and mirrored my sentiments. I felt that Jim Demartini's suggestion to hire a person who is experi- enced and dedicated full time to bringing appropriate businesses to Cloverdale had merit. Perhaps we can pay for this position by reducing some of our annual attorney fees. I also feel that there needs to be the capability to offer incentives for opening or starting a business in Clover- dale. These incentives need to be available not only for larger businesses but small locally owned businesses that can help make our town a unique thriving community. Small local businesses can be successful even in these tough economic times. A good example of this is the new bike and yogurt shops. Kudos to those owners for taking the risk to do something they love and to the community for supporting them. It's important at this point to use re-development funds for economic development to make our community a sustainable entity. Once we do that we can re-focus and look at community development needs. I'm hopeful that our community leaders will sincerely listen to public comment and act accordingly. Now is the time to put a plan in place and act on it. Chris Andersen, Cloverdale New garden at Boys & Girls Club a success Editor: I am the Cloverdale liaison for The Slow Food Sonoma County North School Garden Project. Our mission is to "Expose the youth of northern Sonoma County to good, clean, fair food by supporting the development and maintenance of sustainable gardens in school and after-school programs." The new garden at the Boy's and Girl's Club was an excel- lent opportunity for our group to share the heritage vegetable plants that we started last Spring. We hope that they will enjoy the process of tending the garden as well as enjoying the bounty that their work will provide. Thanks to Mr. King for acknowledging me, but I can only take a small part of the credit. It is really wonderful to see how many people have come together to make this project happen!

Her travels took her to Uganda where she fell in love with the coun- try, the people, and most of all, the children. With a population of 28 million people, half of whom are under the age of 15, Uganda has been decimated by decades of war, disease and poverty.
