Humboldt County Board of Supervisors meeting

Tuesday, June 26, 9:30am

from the front page,

The Board of Supervisors will be asked to support a proposal to the North Coast Railroad Authority (NCRA) establish a working group at its July 11 meeting to explore railbanking the right-of-way from Eureka to Samoa.  This is the next step in support of the Bay [T]rail Initiative that is advocating for a rail-to-trail conversion of the Eureka to Arcata section of the railroad and the use of the Arcata to Samoa section of the railroad for a tourist train (with an adjacent trail). This NCRA working group would be expected to report back to the NCRA Board at its November meeting.

We need to pack the house on Tuesday with supporters of this effort who will speak in favor of the railbanking of the Eureka to Samoa right-of-way.  The meeting begins at 9 a.m., and this agenda item is scheduled for 9:30 in the Board of Supervisors Chambers (825 Fifth Street, Room 111, Eureka). For more information you can go to:

The Baytrail Plan’s website

Or the Board of Supervisors website which includes the full agenda and supporting documents. (See item “E”)

We’re NOT looking for ranting, or flag-waving about this issue. We would like a broad base of individuals who can explain specifically how the bay trail would benefit their life, and at the same time support the ideas and plans of the rail folks too. Our goal is to forge a plan together, and yes, compromise so that we can move forward!

If you are unable to join us on Tuesday, the second best option is to submit a note of support for the initiative that the group can cite at Supervisors meeting. Please indicate your support on their website as soon as possible too. Big kudos to Rees Hughes, Dennis Rael, Judy Hodgson and Don Banducci for their devotion to this plan!!
