Humboldt County is considering changes to its Coastal Plan that would provide more flexibility in uses allowed in the Coastal-Dependent Industrial ("MC") zone. Parcels under discussion are on the Samoa Peninsula, in Fields Landing, and King Salmon.
Eureka and Arcata also have parcels zoned for Coastal-Dependent Industrial uses (see map).
