County of Humboldt - The Home of the Redwoods Seal

Workshop Announcement


Humboldt Bay Area Plan Update Workshop #2

 Discuss Potential Commercial, Residential and other Land Use Changes

 for the Humboldt Bay Area Plan

Tuesday, March 12, 2019, from 6 to 8 PM


Humboldt County is evaluating the types of development around Humboldt Bay.  The Humboldt Bay Area Plan (HBAP) guides development around the Bay and it may be appropriate to modify some of the policies and requirements in the HBAP to support existing development and facilitate new business while also protecting coastal resources and public health and safety.  A series of workshops is being held to discuss proposed changes to the HBAP.  This workshop is the second in the series, focusing on land use and zoning requirements for commercial, residential and other types of properties around the Bay. A future workshop on March 26, 2019 will discuss changes to the HBAP to address sea level rise and tsunami hazard planning. 

The zoning and land use changes to be addressed at this second workshop include changes to zoning requested by landowners, changes to align zoning with HBAP policies, and other changes.  A complete list of Assessor’s Parcel Numbers and proposed changes is located on the county’s Local Coastal Program update webpage under the section entitled Land Use and Zoning Changes.

The public workshop to discuss these proposed changes and gather public comments will be held on:

Tuesday, March 12, 2019,

6:00 to 8:00 PM

Humboldt County Agricultural Center

5630 South Broadway

Eureka, California.


All members of the public are encouraged to attend the workshop.  For more information regarding the workshop series or the proposed changes to the Humboldt County land use regulations, please contact John Miller at (707) 268-3781,  Background information regarding the HBAP update is available on the county’s website.
