HCAOG On The Road To Maintenance

Cliff Berkowitz / Tuesday, July 12 @ 9:08 a.m. / Trails

Emily Sinkhorn and I speak with Marcella Clem, Executive Director of Humboldt County Association of Governments (HCAOG) which has initiated research and work towards a Draft Expenditure Plan for a potential transportation ballot measure. The tax would fund deferred road maintenance throughout the County as state funding for local jurisdictions has been drastically cut and gas-tax revenues have been depleted. This would be a .5% county sales tax and would be specifically earmarked for maintenance.

The madness in Blue Lake continues with Whether We Like It Or Not.  Originally created for the 2014 Thesis Festival, the production was then shown at the New Orleans Fringe Festival and New York City as part of the Flint and Tinder series at The Tank.  Now it's back at Dell'Arte!  Check it out at the Carlo Theater tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 4 p.m.

Creators Ariel Lauryn and Lucy Shelby spoke with me about returning to Blue Lake, the play, and other relatively interesting things.

This morning Jessica Hall and I spoke with Eureka Parks and Recreation Director Miles Slattery about the Eureka Waterfront Trail.

Phase A, which will extend from the northern end of the Hikshari Trail to the foot of Del Norte Street, has begun and should be completed by September, according to Slattery. Phases B and C, which will extend the trail all the way around the waterfront to the Eureka slough, near Target, should be completed by the end of 2017 or the middle of 2018, he added.

Here's the conversation from this morning's broadcast on KHUM:
