15 - MINUTE PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD

Dick Conoboy [AB 18687, Rental Unit Licensing] took issue with a rental licensing and inspection program, and self certification. He cited several cities around the country that have adopted a licensing, and inspection program that are having serious problems and feels that self-certification would not be accurate. He is concerned about landlords having the technical expertise to do their own inspections and make appropriate repairs and asked if the city would be able to provide training and education for landlords.

Dylan Thomson [AB 18814, Trans Mountain Pipeline] asked the council to seriously consider tabling the renewal agreement indefinitely.

Steven Trinkaus [AB 18814, Trans Mountain Pipeline] asked the council to let the current franchise agreement expire.

Anne Mackie [AB 18687, Rental Unit Licensing] President, York Neighborhood Association, quoted from a letter [signed by 24 residents of the York Neighborhood Association] she had submitted to council in support of the creation of an ordinance which requires the periodic inspection of rental buildings in Bellingham as a condition of obtaining a license necessary to engage in the business of residential leasing. “We support the concept of such an ordinance, retaining the right to reject specific features which we might find unsuitable. Our concerns are for the health and safety of tenants as well as that of their neighbors; the preservation of buildings, some of historical significance, as rental stock for the future and the maintenance of the unique character of the neighborhoods of the City of Bellingham.” Ms. Mackie said that while a majority of landlords may be doing a good job, they’re still running a rental business and she believes those businesses should be licensed and held to regulations for that industry. She added that the Mayor’s Neighborhood Advisory Committee recommended to the Mayor that a rental licensing and inspection ordinance should be drawn up for review and discussion in the public process. She said that successful licensing and inspection programs exist throughout the country and Bellingham would not be inventing something new.

Cameron Murphy [AB 18814, Trans Mountain Pipeline] reported on the community forum held May 20, 2010 that addressed the pipeline renewal agreement and concerns about the Alberta tar sands. He said they had addresses by Aaron Sanger, Jack Weiss and Paul Cienfuegos. Overall, he said there was general opposition towards the tar sands, support for resolutions [Council Member Weiss will be introducing on June 7th] and opposition to the franchise renewal.

Aaron Sanger [AB 18814, Trans Mountain Pipeline] spoke in support of two resolutions that are to be brought forwarding regarding fleet fuel objectives and non-fossil fuel transportation and asked that council support those resolutions.

Paul Cienfuegos shared information about dismantling corporate constitutional rights. He said over 100 rural Pennsylvania communities have passed ordinances that rein in constitutional rights and start to give local communities back some legal power. He noted that Mt. Shasta, California has put a version on its’ upcoming ballot. He cited the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund www.celdf.org for more information.

Max Wilbert discussed worldwide environmental issues over the past forty years and said that during that time every living system on earth has declined. He said we need: solutions that match the scale of the problems; to rethink tactics and strategies; to organize and challenge corporate rule and we need our government to be an ally and to refuse to make compromises.

Kat Bula [AB 18869, regulating music and entertainment sound], cofounder of Bellingham’s Downtown Alliance for Music and Night-life (B'DAMN) reviewed how the organization has been involved over the last several years with the night-life community, downtown residents, Bellingham Police Department and city council to support a fair, objective noise ordinance to protect the vibrancy of the downtown. She referenced a list of preliminary changes they would like to see made to the city’s noise ordinance along with a list of more than 300 supporters who signed to show their approval of their proposed changes. She urged the council to take action to begin shaping a new ordinance to include the community in the process. [Ms. Bula did not identify the proposed changes.]

Ian Imhoff [AB 18869, regulating music and entertainment sound] supports the drafting of a new noise ordinance that is objective (not subjective) and that it be passed very soon to secure and continue the growth of Bellingham’s musically rich community.

Samuel Parker, [AB 18869, regulating music and entertainment sound] supports the review of the noise ordinance and encouraged crafting a new policy which is fair to downtown residents, artists and venues, and the people that make Bellingham so unique.

Joan Sova [AB 18687, Rental Unit Licensing] feels that rental owners should not be penalized for owning income producing property. She asked: how the city would determine who owns and who rents? How would the city staff keep up with the ever-changing world of rentals vs. home-owned property? Would inspections be performed on only multi-family units with a minimum number of units required? What about landlords who own a single rental? She asked that council thoroughly research, and look at both sides, of this issue.

Charles Law [AB 18814, Trans Mountain Pipeline] strongly opposes the pipeline and tar oil from Alberta.

Public Comment continued after public hearing.

PUBLIC COMMENT - CONTINUED

Thoren Rogers, [AB 18814, Trans Mountain Pipeline] voiced his support for a fleet fuel resolution and non-fossil fuel resolution. [Council Member Weiss will introduce on June 7th].

McKenna Henrickson [AB 18814, Trans Mountain Pipeline] expressed her concerns about the tar sands and said it is important to remember that we are connected to Canada by infrastructure and economies and also by our air and water. Any threat to those resources is a threat to healthy life and she urged the council to refuse to accept that these issues are beyond our influence. She voiced her support for resolutions regarding fleet fuels and non-fossil fuel transportation [Council Member Weiss will introduce on June 7th]. Finally, she invited the council to join the growing movement in Bellingham, and the nation, to revoke corporate person-hood.

Scott Miles [AB 18687, Rental Unit Licensing] said that we need to continue being very deliberate in considering the ramifications of our rental stock; we want it to grow. He feels this is a good direction but would consider adding an exemption for local ownership and possibly, number of properties. With regard to the noise ordinance [AB 18869, regulating music and entertainment sound] he suggested looking at the City of Bellevue’s noise ordinance where they have adopted an intersecting uses matrix approach.

Robert Cunningham [AB 18687, Rental Unit Licensing] spoke in opposition to rental unit licensing citing that: the rule of three cannot be enforced due to privacy laws; the regulation of licensing landlords is a solution looking for a problem; this action will be inflationary and asked that the city council not burden one segment of the community with a license and regulation that are premature and unnecessary.

Cat Sieh [AB 18869, regulating music and entertainment sound] Director of Make.Shift, a nonprofit that supports musicians. She said that a revised noise ordinance is crucial if we expect a cultural and economic resurgence in downtown Bellingham and the lively and diverse new waterfront. She suggested that initial steps to mitigate the problem could be as simple as designating an arts and entertainment district that encompasses the Central Business District and nearby music venues that currently fall outside of the Central Business District.

Cal Leenstra [AB 18687, Rental Unit Licensing] feels that adopting a draconian new law is unwarranted, ill advised and an invasion of privacy. He said this ordinance won't fix the rule of three, partying, trash or parking problems. He said that Bellingham has a completely different demographic and cannot be compared to cities such as Sacramento, CA or Pasco, WA.

Sam Top, spoke in support of a revised noise ordinance.

Amanda Kalkwarf spoke in support of a revised noise ordinance.

Marlene Jensen, spoke in opposition to a landlord licensing program.

Jordan Rain spoke in support of a revised noise ordinance.

Maggie Hanson spoke in opposition to a landlord licensing and inspections.

Mel Davidson spoke in opposition to landlord licensing and inspections.
