From the Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group:

“It works for the Port of Coos Bay. Why not for the Port of Humboldt Bay?”

Eureka– The topic for the April 24 Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group monthly luncheon will be “Why is the Port of Coos Bay an active, working port, and not the Port of Humboldt Bay?”

The Port of Coos Bay is an international port, where maritime and rail commerce thrives amidst the beauty of Oregon’s South Coast. Every year, more than 1.5 million tons of cargo move through the Coos Bay harbor and over 10,000 tons of seafood are landed at the harbor’s marina. That is not the scenario for the Port of Humboldt Bay, which has conditions very similar to Coos Bay. The reasons why it is working for Coos Bay and not Humboldt Bay will be explored during the luncheon.

The Port of Humboldt Bay is critically underutilized. In exploring why, it is underutilized, we will compare the Port’s conditions of those of Coos Bay and the ports of Oakland and Portland.

The Harbor Working Group’s luncheon program continues to be focused on “The Development of the Port of Humboldt Bay as an International Seaport.” Last year, the presentations were directed to envisioning our Harbor as an international seaport. This year, the programs are dedicated to learning what can be done—and what is being done—to make it happen.

Attend the luncheon and stay informed about our Harbor and the plans and efforts for developing the Port of Humboldt Bay as an international seaport.
The luncheon is scheduled to be held at the Samoa Cookhouse Wednesday, April 24. The luncheon is a “no host” event. Lunch starts being served at noon; and the presentation starts around 12:30.

Meatloaf will be served for lunch at $16 and soup and salad is available for $12.  Please RSVP at 707-441-1974 or charles.bean@yahoo.com.
