In response to the comments received from the public on the Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (SCH#2021040532), the County has prepared a Notice of Preparation (NOP) for a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Nordic Aquafarms California, LLC Land-based Aquaculture Project and associated Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District (Harbor District) Humboldt Bay Master Water Intakes Project. The Project is located in the Samoa area, east of Vance Avenue, approximately 2,000 feet north from the intersection of Vance Avenue and Bay Street, on the property known as 364 Vance Avenue (Assessor Parcel Number 401-112-021).
A Notice of Preparation has been issued further describing the project and requesting the public and affected governmental agencies provide comments on areas that should be covered in the EIR. As part of this, two public scoping meetings are being held to allow the public and affected governmental agencies to present and hear the ideas and concerns associated with this project.
