◼ Eureka approves Marina Center coastal development permit
Councilman Frank Jager said he is in favor of the first phase of the project because his constituents are.
A majority of the public speakers who turned out at a series of meetings regarding the project's environmental impact report, or EIR, and the permit supported moving forward with the Marina Center development, citing the creation of jobs and saying a cleanup of the site is long overdue.
”We as a council owe them that -- to get it moving,” Jager said. “I'm not intimidated by Humboldt Baykeeper, or EPIC, or any of those environmental groups. They're extortionists.”
