Planning Commission Hearing on Zoning Text Amendments and
Zone Reclassifications to Implement the General Plan

DATE: Thursday, October 4th - 6:00 pm

LOCATION: Board of Supervisors Chamber

825 5th Street

Eureka, CA 95501

On Thursday, October 4, 2018 at 6:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as possible, the Humboldt County Planning Commission will be holding a public hearing to consider New Zoning Districts proposed to be added to the Inland Zoning Ordinance and properties are proposed to be rezoned to be consistent with the 2017 Humboldt County General Plan.

To be consistent with the new Land Use Maps, new Zoning Districts are proposed to be added to the Inland Zoning Ordinance including the following:

new Mixed Use Zones that will be applied to areas with MU - Mixed Use, VC - Village Center, or RCC - Rural Community Center General Plan designations,

a new “RR - Railroad” Combining Zone that will be applied to railroad rights of way held by the North Coast Railroad Authority, and those along the former Annie and Mary Railroad rail corridor between Arcata and Blue Lake, and

a new “MR - Mineral Resources” Combining Zone that will be applied to parcels with permitted surface mining operations. 

““WR - Streamside Management Areas and Wetlands” Combining Zone to match the outer boundaries of Streamside Management Areas as defined by General Plan

In addition, specific zones are proposed to be assigned to all areas currently zoned “U - Unclassified”.  Other minor changes to the Zoning Maps are also proposed to be consistent with the General Plan. The proposed new Zone Districts and the rezoned properties occur throughout the non-coastal areas of unincorporated Humboldt County. 

The staff report will be available after Friday September 28th at the Planning Commission agenda webpage and mapping will be available on the Humboldt County WebGIS prior to the hearing.
