January 31st. Last Day of Public Comment on Marina Center Draft Environmental Impact Report

The property on the Old Town Eureka water front, known as the Balloon Tract, once ruled by trains, is set to become a glass and steel monument to local millionaire, Rob Arkley.

The Draft Environmental Impact Report is up for review and was the topic of a forum at the Warfinger Building here in Eureka last night. According to the Humboldt Herald, Ralph Foust spoke as a consultant to the Northcoast Environmental Center and said the project doesn't include enough housing. He questioned why the project proponents called the project "smart growth" when it lacks the live/work "integrated whole" aspects that characterize such development.
The public has until January 31st. to comment on the DEIR.
Arkley reportedly wants the anchor store to be a Home Depot. See Serving Suggestions for details.
