EPIC to Host Community Forums on Richardson Grove

February 9, 2010

EPIC and the Coalition to Save Richardson Grove will host two community forums to address the impacts of the proposed Richardson Grove Highway Improvement project in February.

EPIC and the Save Richardson Grove Coalition announce the presentation of two Community Awareness Night Public Forums. The Forums will highlight aspects of the CALTRANS Richardson Grove Realignment Project that have not been widely publicly discussed or covered in the CALTRANS draft Environmental Impact Report.

Each forum will feature presentations by panelists and a period for public discussion.

The Northern Humboldt Public Forum will be held at the Bayside Grange in Arcata on Wednesday, February 17, 2010 from 6:30 PM-8:30 PM. A featured panelist will be Sharon Duggan of EPIC speaking on the CEQA process.

The Southern Humboldt Public Forum will be held at the Garberville Veterans Hall on Wednesday, February 24 from 7:00-9:00 PM. In addition to the presentations by panelists and public discussion, the forum will feature a performance of original music by local artist Jefferson Parson.

Topics will include Environmental Impacts, Safety, Economic Justification, Sustainable Development, Native American Issues, Impacts to Local Businesses and Alternatives. The choice of topics will vary in emphasis for each forum but the attempt will be made to touch upon each topic given the available time.
