Re: “UPDATE: Eureka Approves Containerville Move, $75k in Funding

I presented a 3-page analyses to the city council describing in minute detail why the Marina Way location presents health and safety hazards to the homeless, and why it goes against the original intent expressed in the General Plan, ordinance No. 5-201, the Industrial/Coastal Dependent zoning designation,and so on. Also noted are significant hazards presented by Dock B, flooding, lack of safe "back door" (exit) from the end of a pocket street, noise pollution from the next door logging operation, not to mention the loss of many parking spaces for visitors. Also, cars, pedestrians and wheelchairs wouldn't be allowed to go the whole stretch of Marina Way. Some think that Marina Way offers more privacy than other sites, but that is an illusion promoted by those who don't know the street very well. In addition to it being the coldest and dampest place in Winter around here, the Coastal Commission advised the Eureka City Council on Monday to scrap this location. Good!

Marina way would be good on the very short term, but not long term. Long term, the city of Eureka needs to Work on cleaning up and developing the waterfront. There's so much real estate right on the water that's home to derelict buildings, junk heaps, and empty lots of tattered unkempt grass. The whole stretch needs to be cleaned up and re-zoned. It would cost millions up front but that land could bring in many millions more, were it a pristine tourist destination. And to get back on subject, it would allow for the creation of hundreds of jobs.
