Another Harbor Study-NOW

At the sparsely attended Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group luncheon at the Samoa Cookhouse on Wednesday Jan 27, the small group of devotees heard from Interim Planning Director Rob Wall that a reworking of the Local Coastal Plan needs to be completed by April. Workshops will be announced shortly and will likely be held at the Harbor District’s facility on Woodley Island. 

The small turnout was blamed on the TImes-Standard, which had not carried the meeting announcement.
