6/14/2018 – Notes from 3rd District Block Captain Meeting

Informational Speakers

Supervisor Shirlee Zane welcomed the group and spoke for a few minutes promising continued advocacy and support.

Legislative Update: Marissa Montenegro, Administrative Analyst, County Administrators Office (see attached handout for fire related bills)

  • Resource for tracking state legislative info is https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov
  • Group disappointed that there wasn’t any follow up after Sen. McGuire town hall re: legislation. Would like to receive updates.
  • Pulling our voice together is really important.
  • Based on feedback at this meeting, next time Marissa speaks to the block captains, she expects to address:

   Timeline for legislative advocacy

   Tapping into unresponsive legislative subcommittee members

   Potential Lobbying day in early 2019 – BC group needs to provide clarification and details on what this looks like

County Update: Mike Gossman, Deputy County Administrator, Office of Recovery and Resiliency (see Slides

  • In terms of this disaster, object is to recognize strengths and weaknesses, mitigate weaknesses
  • Benefitting from grassroots efforts like SoCo Rises, Community Foundation
  • Community engagement is key to progress
  • After collecting stakeholder feedback there will be a Recovery and Resiliency Plan coming to Board of Supervisors for deliberation and adoption in September
  • 99% of burned structures and debris has been cleaned up
  • Cal OES pushed by local leaders to revisit unfinished cleanup, over excavation

   Target to be cleaned up by mid-August

   Problematic for some property owners who are stuck in a holding pattern

  • Some properties have more dirt than needed, some have less

   Is there a way to coordinate with Cal OES contractors to take advantage of both scenarios to balance out supply and demand

  • Federal and state government and contractors have been learning through this disaster

   This cleanup is on a scale none have dealt with previously

   May be a situation where with good intentions they over promised and under-delivered

  • Wattles

   If you have wattles that surrounded toxic debris, those may have toxins in them

   Contact us if you have these wattles and we can provide disposal guidelines

   Wattles that were for erosion control around clean dirt, then those can be used for mulch

   The burlap wattles are all straw.

  • County is pursuing funding partnerships, public and private, to help with rebuild and recovery
  • Future Informational Public Events

   Upcoming recovery and resiliency workshops in each Supervisorial District will be publicized by SoCoRises and CommunityFoundation Sonoma County

   The 3rd District workshop will be August 2, location TBD

  • Request to reach out to standing neighbors as well as fire survivors.

Group Discussion

  1. Agenda Setting
  • Topics for future agendas can be submitted by the group.
  1. Guest speakers & Sharing Info
  • Vita suggests speakers every other week, with off weeks available for area specific discussions

   Much pent-up demand for discussion

   Just sit down and talk when we don’t have a speaker

  • Would be helpful to know what speakers are coming to other block captain meetings, what topics are of universal interest, what questions are relevant to every group
  • Group members, like Matt, who are further along in the rebuild process can share their experience with this group, but what would that look like? When, where and how can people further ahead in the process share their knowledge?

   Everyone moving at different paces.

  1. Questions Arising
  • Doug would like to collect questions from his neighbors and submit to Tracy for answers. Tracy can submit to the subject matter experts.
  • Can we organize, sort questions into functional groups? Would also help with getting appropriate speakers to address the need.
  • Questions for the City – submit to cbarnes@srcity.org and ccoursey@srcity.org. Should also submit to Tracy for the question master list.
  1. Communication
  • Looking for ways to improve communication between block captains, this group and their neighbors
  • What is the most efficient way to communicate?
  • Herb has offered to share what Mark West Estates is doing with their solar collective

   May be an economy of scale volume discount if anyone is interested in joining their initiative.

  • There are groups joining together on geotech surveys. Vita and Matt have contact info
  • One BC says Fountaingrove neighborhoods don’t to walk in lock step, difficult to get a group to work together

   Also, still so many people, especially in FG, who don’t know if they are going to rebuild

   FG HOA communications are not as good as could be – a weakness these property owners are forced to deal with

   Can the City help with connection to FG HOA. Ask Caluha. How effective can we be without an effective HOA?

  • Ask group to submit questions for Sonic and ATT

   I lost my phone number; how can I get it back?

   I am still paying for equipment lost in the fire. Can you help?

   How are you building resiliency into the emergency notification system?

   What if cell towers are burning? Land lines burning?

   What about copper infrastructure? True, non-electric land lines?

  • Group would like to be able to edit the question document.

Representatives from California Hope were in attendance, as well as Andrea Rodriguez from Congressman Mike Thompson’s office.

6/11/2018 – Notes from Listening Session with City of Santa Rosa

3rd District Block Captain’s Listening Session w/City of Santa Rosa June 11, 2018

Water Update – Ben Horenstein, Director of Santa Rosa Water

Benzene contamination

1. Confined except for some isolated incidents

2. Partnering with multiple agencies and experts because of the unprecedented nature of events

3. 5,000 investigative samples have been taken

4. Clearing advisory areas is data driven

5. Sources of contamination
• Melted pipes & faucets – metal and plastic
• Smoke
• Soot
• Ash

6. Maximum Contamination Level (MCL)
• Benzene leaching out into system
• City flushing it out
• Biological process does break down benzene
• Water pressure would normally act to keep out contamination
 Pressure compromised during and after fires
• Actually fortunate leaching is happening before rebuild so it can be addressed
• Replacing water service lines has resulted in lower MCL

7. Path to restoring water service
• Every contaminated service line within advisory area being replaced as well as isolated areas of contamination
• City to pay for replacement of service lines from the main to the meter
• Property owners have responsibility to replace laterals from meter to house
 From sidewalks, when applicable
• Continuing to work with FEMA and CAL OES for reimbursement
• Water will be resampled after installation of new lines
• Phased approach allows for quicker resolution

• Anticipated completion date is August 2018

8. Water For Rebuild/Occupancy
• Water will be provided for construction and landscaping while work is being done to replace service lines
 Must post signs that water is not potable; inform contractors
• City will install activated carbon filtration systems where needed
• Cost, maintenance, and monitoring of filtration systems covered by City until issue is fully resolved – per investigation data
• End of August is target date for completion
 Maps should be updated by end of August
 Subscribe to newsletter
• Working to lift advisory warning by fall 2018

9. Concerns/questions
• Health concerns should be referred to health experts, especially if household includes medically fragile individuals
• City has not looked at how contamination might affect gardens/good grown on property
• Personal judgement needs to be used
 Fruit-bearing trees likely safe
 Ground plants (e.g., strawberries) perhaps not
• City reluctant to promise testing individual homes as they reach occupancy
 Water will be tested after service lines replaced
 Documentation available to property owners

Planning & Economic Development Update – David Guhin, Director

1. Resilient City Permit Center & Rebuilding Information
• Room 6 at City Hall

2. Walk-ins welcome even for individual one-on-one questions
• Even if there aren’t any plans yet

3. There are 600 homes in the rebuild process

4. Current code requirements
• All rebuilds need to be up to current code
• Codes change every three years so there is an additional expense for each code upgrade
 Insurance should have a code upgrade component
 Ask City for list of code updates to provide insurance company
• July 1, 2018 codes being implemented could add minor fees
 Wildlife urban interface, skylights, decking etc.

 Question about insurers not covering code updates not in place at time of fire (City seemed skeptical of this)
• Fees are approximately $4000 to $5000 based on square footage

5. Sprinklers
• Questions can be directed to Ian Hardage ihardage@srcity.org
• 2011 code change requires sprinklers
• Water pressure for sprinklers
 House location may affect need for water pressure pump
• Sprinkler companies work with Fire Department
• Cost is roughly $3 per square foot for new build
• Sprinklers are designed to save lives, not houses
 Possibly adds 10 minutes of protection
• Sprinkler contractor needs to be a C16 contractor
 Should be able to provide more than one option
• Can measure available pressure at each location
• Design of sprinklers dependent on square footage and other factors – very site specific

6. Communication
• City is meeting with contractors, engineers, architects on a regular basis so that everyone is aware of what their role is and what they need to provide while moving through the process
• Rebuilding 3,000 homes requires a great deal of coordination
• Unprecedented undertaking
• Real time data tracker online
• Will have “traffic cop” in rebuild area due to multiple trucks serving different purposes being present at all times

7. Timelines
• Pre-application meetings encouraged – to help save time and money
• Turnaround time for plans without multiple or complex changes is 5 days
 If adding floors or moving house on lot – turnaround time could be
2-3 weeks

8. HOAs
• City does not enforce HOA rules
• Property owners could face civil remedies if they violate HOS rules
• HOA rules generally about design’s look and feel
• Inform City of conflicts with code requirements and HOA rules
• HOA can be more restrictive than City but not less
• Question from BC – can HOA’s be educated on requirements/process
 Caluha Barnes suggested sending HOA contact information to the
City

Law Enforcement Update – Lt. Ron Nelson, Santa Rosa Police Department

6. Security & Safety (questions answered by multiple City officials)
• Send Nelson or Beat Sgt. email when beginning to build and moving construction materials onto property – extra visits to area will be provided
• Hi-def cameras can send alerts to cell phone about $200
• Thieves unlikely to impact standing homes – prefer crimes of opportunity
• Per Guhin – security a repeating topic at meetings with contractors; perhaps topic of a future meeting
 City will coordinate with contractors hiring private security

• Engage HOA’s in security conversations
• Homeless encampments are on the SRPD radar
 Working to find housing solutions
• Fire Hazards – Weed Abatement

6/7/2018 – Notes from 3rd District Block Captain Meeting

Operation Hope Presentation – Wendy Wheelwright, Project Manager

See Post-Fire Coping and Free Counseling for more information.

Highlights:

1. Community reaction differs from individual reactions, which can include physical, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral reactions

2. Immediate reaction is to get things done. One can only be in “go mode” for about six months. Typical reactions at this point:
• Physical effects
 Headaches & stomach problems
 Memory issues
 Difficulty concentrating, sleeping
 Substance abuse
 Declining job performance

• Emotional effects/reactions
 Denial
 Anxiety
 Fear
 Depression
 Guilt
 Apathy
 Preoccupation with disaster
 Frequent crying, increased irritability

• Spiritual reactions

3. You have the power to say “this is not how this story ends.”

4. What can help
• Remind yourself that post-traumatic stress reactions are normal, practice ways to manage reactions, practice helpful thinking, do fun or meaningful activities, spend time with others, avoid using alcohol or drugs to cope with your reactions, call a counselor for help

5. The power of connection
• Do let others know you need to talk or just be with them (but choose carefully whom to talk to)
• Don’t keep quiet because you don’t want to upset others
• Don’t keep quiet because you are worried about being a burden
• Don’t wait until you’re so stressed or exhausted that you can’t fully benefit from help

• Do depend on your inner circle
• Charles Dickens said “No one is useless in this world if they lighten the burdens of others”

6. Post-traumatic stress reactions—re-experiencing, avoidance, numbing, activation

7. What can help others
• Educate yourself
• Be patient
• Be understanding
• Ask questions
• Be realistic
• Be persistent
• Help with practical needs
• Understand the impacts of triggers

8. Self-Care – How’s Your Five?
• Eat well
• Move daily
• Hydrate often
• Sleep more
• Love, Laugh, Connect

9. Your identity
• Trauma has a way of overtaking your identity – but you are not your trauma. You are more than that.
• Wendy’s mother says “the universe has decided to test me, and I’m going to get an A.”

Review of Questions, Concerns – Group Discussion

1. Several efforts underway to recruit more block captain – Nextdoor, Mail Chimp email to Right of Entry (ROE) contact list, word of mouth, HOAs

2. Fountaingrove Ranch HOA meeting on June 20, some opportunity to recruit block captains there

3. There was a review of questions the block captains will want to have addressed as we move through the recovery process:

• Can the City provide an ombudsman or navigator for any rebuild questions?
• Water safety, water pressure
• Vandalism/ theft issues most recurring questions for the City

• Gabe Osborn from Santa Rosa Planning and Economic Development has been willing to attend many public meetings. We will request that he attend one of our upcoming meetings.
• Concerns about evacuation routes need to be addressed
• Whose jurisdiction is the mailbox placement question?
• Where can trees be planted?
• Does the City understand morale issues among neighbors? Question for
SR Community Engagement
• Several people are building concrete homes. One block captain is using a contractor from Lake County.

4. Determination of top four priorities to bring to City listening session
• Ombudsman for rebuild
• Water pressure & water quality
• Vandalism & theft
• Access during construction

6/2/2018 – Update from 3rd District

From: Tracy Cunha <Tracy.Cunha@sonoma-county.org>
Date: Sat, Jun 2, 2018 at 4:52 PM
Subject: Schedule of Block Capt Mtgs & Speakers/List of Questions/Additional Resources

Hello All,

Speakers: Here is what we have scheduled so far:

  • June 7: California Hope – a counseling service funded by FEMA that provides free, on-site (come-to-your-door) type counseling for those impacted from the fires.
  • June 14: County representative from the Office of Recovery and Resiliency to provide a County Update and a County spokesperson to provide a Legislative Update
  • June 21: AT&T – also trying to secure a representative from Sonic
  • July 12: Sonoma Clean Power & County’s Energy & Sustainability Division (info about incentives attached)

The speakers scheduled for both June 7 and June 14 can be rescheduled for a later date should you choose not to meet one or both weeks. Perhaps you can reply just to me – not reply all – as to whether or not you see value in meeting June 7 and June 14 and I will report back on the consensus.

Permit Sonoma Rebuilding Documentary Series:

Sharing some video documentation that follows a couple engaged in a rebuild in the Hidden Hills neighborhood off Riebli Road that has been posted on Youtube by Permit Sonoma at this page. Recognizing City and County processes differ in some ways, we thought these would be helpful for you to view at your leisure. In total, they run a little over 10 minutes. Definitely urge you to subscribe to the Permit Sonoma YouTube channel if you find them helpful. Upcoming videos will focus on insurance and County’s Energy and Sustainability Division no-cost rebuilding consultations.

Free Clean Fill Dirt:

The 1st District office received a call about a contractor who has 4000+ yards of clean fill dirt in Calistoga. This could be a good option for some folks if you need fill. Contact Bald Mountain Development Project Manager Robert Chrzanowski, 707-310-7149. Site address 400 Silverado Trail, Calistoga. They are helping to load trucks with the dirt.

Looking forward to learning if the United Policyholders meeting provided some value to those who attended.

  • Not all of Fountaingrove needs to be retrenched; Most in conduit; simple to remove and replace damaged wiring

Overhead vs. Underground

  • PG&E is strategically looking at structuring underground, but generally, whatever existed before the fires will remain in place, e.g., Parker Hill was previously overhead and will remain overhead
  • Looking strategically at where they can go underground, but main considerations are for safety and logistics
  • Neighborhoods can petition PG&E for Rule 20 (conversion of overhead to underground)
  • This is a govt driven decision – PG&E provides funds to cities and counties who then prioritize underground projects – usually scenic corridors
  • Cost is approximately $1000 per foot to convert to underground

Infrastructure

  • PG&E normally only paves half the street after completion of work
  • City of Santa Rosa unsure of amount of funding that will be received from FEMA

Timelines & Applications

  • With a start date of July, completion for permanent power is projected for year-end
  • No timeline determined for temporary overhead power lines
  • Upon filing, PG&E will typically respond within 24 hours
  • Be sure to indicate on application you were impacted by fires; this will expedite your application
  • Tara will try to further expedite individual cases when needed; contact her directly
  • Service connection will take about three weeks
    • One week to check job; one week to make any necessary changes; one week for construction
  • Temporary power will not have that same delay; set-up costs are waived
  • Builder may pass on rental fee for temporary poles
  • City approval required for placement of trailers on properties; PG&E will then provide temporary power

PG&E & Sonoma Clean Power partnership

  • Good incentives exist for going 100% electric; gas lines will be capped at the main distribution line
  • Incentives are doubled for fire survivors

Corrections to PG&E Notes

1. Temporary power/permanent power applications, file at www.pge.com/cco

Trenching and Costs:

  • Comcast to pay for connection from main line to home
  • Fountaingrove, trenching not needed

  • Service trenches will include all utilities

Timelines & Services

  • Installation requests expected to be completed within five days

General Discussion

There was a discussion about possibly using a cloud-based source like Slack, or separate (non-County) website to disseminate resources and information. Individuals with tech skills to contact Vita.

Concern was expressed about not having all neighborhoods represented. Some are well represented while others haven’t any.To help address this, 3rd District office will create an outreach piece and post on Next Door. Suggestions made to “paper” flyers on empty lots, small businesses still frequented by residents, e.g., Rincon Valley etc.

Discussion about showing others the meetings are a productive use of time. What are the goals? General consensus more input is needed from the City of Santa Rosa. 3rd District office to invite Mayor Coursey to a future meeting. A rotating agenda was suggested; with first Thursday of the month to include a City rep.

The group agreed to cancel the May 31 meeting in favor of attending the United Policyholders meeting at the Glaser Center where the topic was about underinsurance.

Schedule of Future Informational Speakers

A schedule will be sent out as speakers are confirmed. Issues related to water, roads, traffic/parking, and safety requires presentations by City of Santa Rosa officials, which is being worked on by the 3rd District office.

To date, non-City related requests for speakers have included:

  • AT&T
  • Sonic
  • Energy & Sustainability (County)
  • Sonoma Clean Power

Should other topics come to mind, please contact Tracy Cunha.
