City of Eureka drops north Crowley site as option for Betty Chinn Trailer Village
EUREKA, Calif. —
On the May 15 regular council agenda, the Eureka City Council set a public hearing to hear the Local Coastal Program Amendment for the northern section of the Crowley Site on Hilfiker Lane. The amendment was intended to change the zoning of the parcel from Coastal Dependent Industrial to Service Commercial with the intent of creating a site for the Betty Chinn Community Housing Project.
The city of Eureka has heard from a number of businesses in this area regarding the north end of the Crowley site and is removing this north end from consideration, officials said. The trailers currently located at that site will be removed once a suitable alternative site is identified.
The city will be actively pursuing alternative sites, potentially including the south end of the Crowley property located next to the Wastewater Treatment Facility. Once the preferred site is selected, staff will present to the Council and public the process necessary to execute the project in that location.
The city says that they continue to believe in the value of the project and its partnership with the Betty Chinn Foundation.
