No
2a) If not, are there barriers that you want placed on the county’s list to be removed? Yes
2b) If Yes, what are those barriers? Limited hours, days, and stops for public transportation make it harder to use county facilities. Not all county facilities are easily reached by ordinary public transportation. Alternative 'just for disabled' transportation is limited.
3) What county programs or facilities do you visit most often? Aviation/Airport, Courthouse, Library Services
4) What is your preferred mode of transportation? Public transportation
5) Please leave any additional comments: I think the county should set a goal to have a bus stop within one or two blocks of every county facility that is open to the public. I mean a bus stop that allows a clear path to the facility, such as a sidewalk without poles in the middle, with no uncut curb, steep hill, unsafe street crossing, or similar barrier for people who have mobility, vision, or other disabilities. Everyone should be able to ride a bus to a county facility.

3) Are there any facilities that you’d like to see renovated that are not currently on the renovation list? If none, please leave blank. why don't you move the permitting / planning facility to the old K Mart location I'm pretty sure that area has plenty of room and parking. The old area is too congested for it and mental health.

Let the mental health / corner office have that whole area for their facility and parking Health and human services , homeless should be before law enforcement / administration

The law enforcement offices get plenty of money already so they should be lower then may of the other offices in need They could take over other buildings that become vacant if they want to move out of the courthouse.
The supervisors take enough money from the county and should get nothing! No raises either -- money should go to education / food for all children and the homeless. This is VERY VERY important!!

3) Are there any facilities that you’d like to see renovated that are not currently on the renovation list? If none, please leave blank. John Haynes Memorial Veterans Hall, in Garberville. It has been years since this vital meeting space has been available to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and other groups. This space is integral to our needs as veterans and the community at large. We have the largest per capita percentage of veterans in the State, in Southern Humboldt, and they live in the hills, in isolation, especially now, when there is no where to meet. We need, as Veterans, to continue giving to our community. Our Christmas dinners, T-giving dinners, disaster planning, rap groups, supervisorial debates, Wage Peace Cafe, free movie night, respite for campers in sub-zero temperatures. We need connectedness. Is mold worse than covid? Couldn't we just wear masks in the Vets Hall? Thank you for providing a platform to express my views. This is the highest priority for the Veterans. I know--I am one.
