On July 28, the Board of Supervisors will decide whether an old billboard that collapsed last winter should be allowed to be rebuilt under the guise of grandfathering in mistakes of the past. Join us in urging the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors to uphold the Planning Commission denial of this permit so that there is one less billboard blighting the beautiful Elk River wetlands and the southern gateway to Eureka.

Last winter, an old billboard collapsed into the Elk River wetlands just south of Eureka. This sign was built long before current state and local rules governing billboards were adopted - no billboard would ever be allowed in a coastal wetland by today's standards. On May 7, the County Planning Commission denied the permit, but the sign owner appealed that decision, and on July 28, the Board of Supervisors will decide whether this sign should be allowed to be rebuilt under the guise of grandfathering in mistakes of the past.
