After a 6-month hiatus, the Humboldt County General Plan Update process has yet again sprung into action with the release of a new draft last month and a new tentative schedule of hearings for public input set to begin early in 2009. The new General Plan, once completed, will be the blueprint for future development across unincorporated areas of the County.
Will we protect timberlands and farmlands, and promote trails and transportation choices that work for healthy communities and a prosperous future? Or will we let unplanned development turn our rural lands into suburban sprawl?
Thursday, Dec. 18, 2008, 6 p.m. Planning Commission public study session on the Draft Plan to explain changes in the Draft Plan, major issues, support documents for public input and comparisons with other plan alternatives.
Thursday, Jan. 22, 2009, 6 p.m. Monthly public hearings by the Planning Commission will begin. These are usually on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
The Plan is available on the GPU website at www.planupdate.org with hard copies available for viewing at the Humboldt County Library (all branches), the Community Development Services Department front counter, and Fed-Ex Kinko’s Office & Print, where copies can be ordered.
