HUMBOLDT COALITION FOR PROPERTY RIGHTS RESPONDS TO DRAFT GENERAL PLAN UPDATE AND DEIR
Responses posted publicly at www.humcpr.com.
June 26, 2012 (Eureka, CA) – Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights has posted on its Web Site responses to the county’s General Plan Update (GPU) and Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the public to review.
HumCPR is dedicated to preserving Humboldt County’s rural lifestyle, and feels that the public has a right to know the far-reaching impacts on land use that the GPU and DEIR hold in their currently proposed state.
“The Board of Supervisors is poised to vote on, and potentially pass, a document that is flawed and riddled with illegalities; and which will take away the rights of landowners in Humboldt County for generations to come,” said HumCPR Chairman Lee Ulansey.
“We felt that it was critical that someone wade through these confusing, complicated documents and do what the county has failed to do thus far: decipher and explain their impacts to the public,” Ulansey concluded.
To accomplish this task, HumCPR enlisted the aid of Land-Use Attorney David Temblador of the Sacramento-based law firm Harrison Temblador Hungerford and Johnson. The results of Temblador’s painstaking research into the DEIR and GPU are now posted on HumCPR’s Web Site: www.humcpr.com.
“We urge the public to review our responses and educate themselves on the impacts these document hold for all of us,” said Ulansey. “We feel it is incumbent for the Board of Supervisors to do what’s best for the citizens of Humboldt County and immediately stop this extremely flawed process from going forward.”
