Imagine Humboldt! is regional planning designed around a community-based vision of Humboldt County over the next forty years. It is expected that there will be approximately 24,500 more people living in Humboldt County by 2050, which is slightly less than the current population of the City of Eureka. A long-term vision is needed to guide future decisions regarding how to accommodate a growing population and economy, while sustaining our quality of life and the natural environment.
Imagine Humboldt! is about our shared future and identifying what Humboldt County residents see as the region’s most important livability features. It provides the community an opportunity to consider the region’s strengths and challenges and to express future growth values and priorities. It is vitally important that the community’s voice is heard and that Humboldt County resident’s work together to ensure we achieve the future we desire.
Please visit the web site at www.imaginehumboldt.com  for more details, the schedule of workshops, and the survey. It is important that this effort encompasses the widest spectrum of opinions from all sectors of our County. Your input is extremely valuable and needed to truly reflect the vision of Humboldt County’s residents.
