Arcata Senior Planner Delo Freitas spends many of her waking hours thinking about Arcata’s Gateway Plan

(AUDIO) Delo Freitas is Holding Up!

With Cal Poly Humboldt’s ambitious expansion goals and the potential for growth in other new and existing industries around Humboldt, City of Arcata officials have been diligently working to figure out how to accommodate an expected influx of people who might want a foggy college town as the setting for their story. As part of those efforts, it’s been nearly a year since the City of Arcata announced its Gateway Plan, which designates a 138 acre section of the city west of downtown as an area of focus for future high-density housing projects.

On today’s episode of Humboldt Holding Up — LoCO’s good-enough Zoom-aided podcast thingy — we attempt to get an idea on how the Gateway Plan is progressing with Delo Freitas, a senior planner with the City of Arcata.
