CRITICAL LAND USE HEARING THIS THURSDAY

The Planning Commission must hear from us on April 30th
A massive turn out of our constituents for this hearing will be needed to generate the political support to protect Humboldt's agricultural and timber lands from development.

We're asking our members who:
*Support Alternative A's "Community Forest Acquisition and Management Program" that could protect the McKay Tract and create a Community Forest for Eureka

*Would choose a smaller urban footprint over sprawling residential development on Humboldt's prime agricultural lands

*Would like to prevent subdivision and development on industrial timber land to join us at the Planning Commission this Thursday, April 30th The County is expecting people from all over Humboldt to make a point of being at this Town Hall style meeting, and it will likely be moved from the Supervisors' Chambers to the Eureka High School Gym to ensure that there will be space for everyone. So it really is critical that our constituents come out in force and stand in solidarity for the most ecologically sound and community strengthening land-use policies. Again, the details: WHEN: April 30, 6:00pm WHERE: Supervisors' Chambers (825 5th St) or Eureka High School Gym (1915 J St) WHAT: Supervisors meeting regarding the Land Use portion of the Humboldt County General Plan Update WHO: You!

Please check www.healthyhumboldt.org for talking points. In the meantime, please feel free to call Healthy Humboldt at 682-5292. Hope to see you on the 30th!
