Document Description
The City is proposing to construction an approximately 1.2-mile long segment of Class 1 multi-use trail from Del Norte Street south to Truesdale Street. The project, also known as "Phase A," would be an extension of a trail ("Phase B") that is proposed to follow the Humboldt Bay coastline along the Eureka waterfront. (A Mitigated Negative Declaration was adopted for Phase B in July 2012, State Clearinghouse Number 2012052053). The project purpose is to further enhance non-motorized and pedestrian connectivity, and increase public access to and along Eureka's waterfront on Humboldt Bay. The project is intended to encourage nature study, appreciation of the environment and historic uses of the area, increase opportunities for active living to improve public health, increase the safety of non-motorized transportation, improve public safety, and recover native vegetation community values where possible. In addition, the project seeks to reclaim an area that is frequented by transients and the local homeless population and in which significant accumulations of trash and other waste have occurred. The proposed alignment is an important piece in the statewide initiative to complete the California Coastal Trail. The proposed Eureka Coastal Trail system (which includes Phase A) and associated coastal access improvements are key elements in the City's General Plan and Eureka City Council's Strategic Plan 2013-2018.
