Overview of Development Services - Planning 

  • The Planning, Zoning, and Community Development Division facilitates development projects, zoning administration, FEMA floodplain administration, long-range and current City planning, design review, historic preservation, environmental review and permitting, changes to the City Zoning Code, the General Plan, and annexations.
  • A community cannot flourish without affordable, adequate shelter for its citizens.  The City works to ensure that all residents have access to the variety of housing options needed to thrive and prosper in Humboldt County.  Through our Housing Programs, we strive to see that our neighborhoods are well cared for and maintained. 
  • The GIS Division serves as the lead for enterprise GIS development and data distribution.  The division deploys GIS technology for City of Eureka, other municipalities and the public.  GIS at the City of Eureka is used to support data driven decision making, as well as support projects of all kinds that occur in and around our geographic area.
