Action Alert!!   

Speak out to protect Humboldt Bay and the community!

Attend the RAPIT Meeting THIS WEDNESDAY 8/20/2008 5:30 pm at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka.

The Rail and Port Infrastructure Taskforce (RAPIT) will be holding a forum this Wednesday at 5:30 at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka to discuss the development of Humboldt Bay as an industrial port.  Speakers will include:

   David Hull, CEO, Humboldt Bay Harbor District.

   A representative from Ports America AIG.

   A legislative representative from the ILWU (longshoremen’s union).

   Mitch Stogner, executive director, North Coast Railroad Authority.

   Humboldt Bay Mariculture industry leaders.

This industry-driven forum is being held to garner support for the development of the Redwood Marine Terminal Project, which would bring an industrialized container shipping facility to Humboldt Bay.  This project will bring with it a host of environmental problems with it including impacts to the Bay from increased dredging, unregulated air pollution, and unregulated water quality impacts from ballast water and increased the likelihood of a major oil spill occurring in Humboldt Bay that would devastate the Bay and the coastal waters. 

Please Come And Speak For The Bay And The Community!

After 100 years of industrial activity around Humboldt Bay, the community is looking for clean industry that protects the health of the Bay and the community and supports our quality life here on the north coast.

Tell The Harbor District You Do Not Support The Business Plan For The Redwood Marine Terminal Project!

Currently, the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation, and Conservation District is accepting public comment on the development of the Redwood Marine Terminal on the shores of Humboldt Bay.  This project is focused on the re-industrialization of Humboldt Bay by bringing polluting container ships to the Bay and resuming service by the defunct the North Coast Railroad to Humboldt Bay.  The business plan and feasibility study can be viewed at:  www.humboldtbay.org
