City of Eureka staff will be presenting at the July Planning Commission and City Council meetings, and the public is invited to attend one or both meetings in-person in the Council Chambers or via Zoom to provide comments on the Public Review Draft of the Waterfront Eureka Plan (WEP).

  • Planning Commission - July 10, 2023 at 5:30 p.m. 
  • City Council - July 18, 2023 at 6:00 p.m.  

Go to and click on “Watch Meetings Now” to view the meetings or agendas (which include Zoom information).

Please visit to access the document.  Comments on the draft WEP may be submitted through, or directly to Development Services – Planning; the comment period on the Public Review Draft will end on August 11, 2023. There will be additional opportunity to comment during the subsequent adoption process.

The purpose of the WEP is to guide development and redevelopment of Eureka’s central waterfront by facilitating new mixed-use developments and increasing housing stock. The WEP will serve as a template for land use, circulation, and infrastructure to be used by City leaders, residents, businesses, and developers. The WEP outlines community-led visions for the future of the Plan Area, and contains focused policies, programs, and regulations, which will govern and shape development in the Plan Area to achieve these visions.

Questions? Contact Development Services – Planning 707-441-4160;
