How do we make the General Plan Update systems based? Proceedings[edit | edit source]

Convenor:Willow Rain

Issues are Scattershot[edit | edit source]

  • Understanding GP process
  • Resource production with built in environmental community organization informs political process
  • Concerns with process
  • How GP facilitates or constrains local food systems
  • How other GP processes can inform Humboldt County process
  • How to improve planning process from professional perspective
  • Understanding sustainable development in natural environment

What is systems based?[edit | edit source]

  • Road networks
  • Watersystems, connective element
  • Soil – cycle- energy transfer
  • Bio-mimicry informs systems based place (eg: effective farm is closed loop) Frank Lake’s work

Fixes – Next Steps[edit | edit source]

  • Keep communication going
  • Find common ground
  • Look to other communities as models
  • Emphasize conversation mode
  • Apply open space model to GP
  • What does system based planning mean relating to GPU?
  • Seems to big to tackle
  • Rivers are a reflection of our planning
  • Human needs system with regard to long term plannind

GP Issues[edit | edit source]

  • Not planning for future
  • Tragedy of the commons
  • Regulatory framework does not allow resource protection
  • Resource use and over-use
  • Length of GPU process 91/2 years – It is a living document – always being updated
  • Keep all issues as relevant
  • If some ideas too new or controversial to enact at present; build models to test and implement later
