Responsibilities
The GEAMAC is tasked with gathering input from the community and commenting on matters of concern which relate to county services provided to the greater Eureka area including but not limited to public works, health, safety, welfare and public financing. The GEAMAC is not intended to address countywide topics.

A secondary responsibility of the GEAMAC is to review, comment and provide advisory recommendations to the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors on proposed zoning amendments, and general plan petitions and amendments located within the Eureka planning area related to conformance with the Eureka Community Plan. The GEAMAC will also discuss and provide input on long-range planning issues.

The GEAMAC does not review, comment or provide advisory recommendations on subdivisions, conditional use permits, special permits, coastal development permits or variances unless they are part of a larger project which also includes a general plan amendment or zone reclassification. The GEAMAC will make recommendations on proposed zoning and general plan petitions and amendments, but is not a decision making body. The GEAMAC does not have authority to make, set, provide interpretation of or enforce county ordinances, policies or laws.
