Re: “PETA Asks Eureka to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages [Updated]

Way to go PETA!

Protect horses by exploiting women! Use naked women to attract attention to your cause.

Marketing firms have been using this approach for years. Naked women can really help sell a hard-to-sell product.

As a City Council Member, maybe I should take a second look at that letter, huh?

Re: “Just a Moment

Hank: Agreed. I won't be leaving it up to "blind faith". I just wanted to counter the mis-perception that this document has never been vetted until now. First step: Hear what the community has to say.

Re: “Just a Moment

Hank - Here are a few clarifications regarding the process to help address your concerns:

  1. The Draft EIR was published November 2008. 179 written comments were received, including comments from 17 different agencies. 850 pages of total comments.
  2. The comment period closed January, 2009. The City and the consultants paid to develop the EIR have been weighing the objections and responding to the comments for the past 10 months.
  3. The Final EIR includes a 22 page Errata section. This section reviews all of the changes made to the Draft EIR as a result of the comments received.
  4. Any lawsuits filed over the EIR or the project will be the responsibility of project applicant - not the City of Eureka. Standard practice for California cities in today's litigious society is to require legal indemnification at the start of the project.
  5. Our next meeting on October 20th will kickoff public comment on the Final EIR. There is no action item on the Agenda.
Hope that info helps provide some extra clarity - see you on the 20th!
