The Blue Zone Project

The City of Ukiah and Ukiah Valley Medical Center are exploring ways to help you live longer and happier in Mendocino County.  They are exploring a system called The Blue Zone Project and want your feedback. 

U.S. Highway 101 just north of Leggett was reopened to one-way traffic control Friday as Caltrans says the landslide cleanup is ahead of schedule.

 

According to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, the removal work of nearly 25,000 cubic yards of debris has cost Caltrans about $2 million. By the time the highway is open to both lanes in a few months, the cleanup may total approximately $5 million.

The homeless in Mendocino County have few options for shelter.  The temporary winter shelters are closing soon and in Ukiah, the police are constantly telling them to leave the city. More than a dozen illegal camping tickets have been issued to homeless individuals in the past six months. A group of about 15 recently had to vacate their campsite in downtown Ukiah near the Depot the beginning of April.  In part 4, Kzyx catches up with them as they break down their campsite.  Then, we hear from Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman.

Work on the 125 year-old Palace Hotel in Ukiah can finally begin now that the Los Angeles based court appointed receiver, Mark Adams, has been granted approval by the Mendocino County Superior Court to move forward with his proposed plan to abate the hazardous conditions of the property.
