Potential changes in land use and zoning for Industrial/Coastal-Dependent Lands

County of Humboldt - The Home of the Redwoods Seal

Humboldt County is evaluating the Humboldt Bay Area Plan and Coastal Zoning Regulations related to Industrial/Coastal-Dependent (MC).  A recent study suggests there is an over-supply of MC-designated lands, and, it may be in the public interest for the County to change the zoning for some MC properties to facilitate a more appropriate development pattern.  This process may also explore modifying the number of allowed uses in the MC zone or other changes to the zone to better guide use of these parcels. 

A public workshop to gather public comments will be held on Thursday, Nov. 8 from 6 to 8 pm at the Humboldt County Agricultural Center located at 5630 South Broadway in Eureka, California.

The MC land demand study and supporting background materials are available on the county’s website. All members of the public are encouraged to attend the workshop.

For more information regarding the workshop or the proposed changes to the Humboldt County land use regulations, please contact Lisa D. Shikany at (707) 268-3780,
