Action Alert: Supervisors Vote to Change General Plan Guiding Principles Without Public Review

June, 2013

On Monday, June 3, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors did an about face on the Guiding Principles of the County’s General Plan Update.  Despite requests from many speakers for more time to review a new set of principles that were released just three days before the hearing, the Board voted 4-1 to substantially alter the original Guiding Principles. The Board needs to hear from you to ensure that they restore a meaningful public process that seeks to balance the interest of our broad community, rather than one that serves the self-interest of some developers, Realtors, and large property owners.

What you can do:

Call or write your Supervisors to let them know that the public requires more time to review these changes:

District 1: Rex Bohn, (707) 476-2391,
Estelle Fennell, (707) 476-2392, mlovelace@co.humboldt.ca.us
District 4: Virginia Bass, (707) 476-2394, vbass@co.humboldt.ca.us
District 5: Ryan Sundberg, (707) 476-2395, rsundberg@co.humboldt.ca.us
