City Council Supports Industrial Art Studio


Part 1a

Part 2

The item drawing only positive reactions and comments from the board and audience members, at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, was the leasing of the boys locker room, at City Hall East, to Flockworks for an industrial arts studio. Janet Self, founder of Flockworks, presented their vision for the space, seeing it as a collaborative effort among artists, the public, and the City of Ft. Bragg. They see themselves developing public art projects, assisting in building the Fort Bragg brand as a haven for artists, housing classes, open studios and workshops. Flockworks has already received a $25,000 donation in the form of a letterpress. The Board unanimously agreed to a two-year lease, at $50 per month.
Great news to those devoted to the farmer’s market is the board’s decision to provide the old recreation center’s gymnasium as a rental space to non-profits. The farmer’s market will continue to operate throughout the winter in the old rec center gym. It was noted by Sarah Bodner, manager of the Mendocino Farmer’s Market, that this will be the first coastal farmer’s market to be open year-round. The board established the rate of $25 per event for up to six hours of use. In December, the board will revisit this item to discuss a full-day, and half-day rate.
Scott Schneider, representing Visit Mendocino County, presented their annual report, highlighting the establishment of the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands being designated a coastal national monument. Of note, the Lodging Association has terminated its contract with VMC.
The board agreed to pass the “Automatic Fire Sprinkler and Alarm Systems” ordinance as amended.
