Eureka, Ca. (KIEM) — The California Coastal Commission kicked off day one of their round meetings being held here on the north coast. Wednesday morning, commission members and residents packed the Wharfinger Building in Eureka.
There are a few big ticket items on the agenda. There was the permit application for the proposed Caltrans Route 101 Corridor Improvement Project that would affect a 6 mile stretch of Highway 101 between Eureka and Arcata. The commission will also look at the proposed Trinidad Rancheria Hotel and Casino project, which would be 5 stories and have 100 rooms.
We spoke with one Humboldt County resident who believes it’s important for people to come out to the meetings and have their voices heard.
The California Coastal Commission meets again Thursday and Friday morning at 9 am.
