And you probably have some ideas on what sectors you’d like to see Humboldt’s largest city prioritize when it comes to economic development, yes? Well, you can share your two cents with city staff and learn more about Eureka’s draft Economic Development Strategic Plan during a virtual public meeting tonight! 

Here’s more information and directions on how to participate, from the City of Eureka :

The City of Eureka Economic Development Department is currently updating its Economic Development Strategic Plan. The updated plan will outline critical initiatives and highlight milestone projects and focus areas that will govern economic development staff resourcing for the next five years.

An initial draft plan has is being developed with input from many critical community stakeholders, but city staff wants to ensure every interested citizen has an opportunity to learn about, fully consider, and help shape the final document.

“I want to encourage everyone to join the virtual meeting on June 22. COVID-19 recovery is underway, tourism is coming back, and essential momentum is building. Every citizen needs to understand just where we are focused and why. And, of course, if we’ve missed anything along the way, we want to hear about that too. Now is a great time to get involved,” City Manager Miles Slattery said.
