We are looking to create an interactive, creative, fun, family-oriented experience to Explore Eureka and to showcase the beauty of our 13 city parks and our new Eureka waterfront trail.
To be honest, we’re not sure what it would be like yet but the intent is to get local folks – as well as tourists – to get out on the trail and into our parks, be active, showcase so much of what Eureka has to offer – all while having a good time.
All we know for sure right now is that it will have a social media component and a brochure or map to go with it. Some of our potential ideas include:
We need your help!
If you would like to be in on the very early stages of this exciting project and then to help steer it in the future, we’re looking for volunteers to attend a community meeting at the Adorni Center Conference Room on Wednesday April 10 at 5:30PM.
The City of Eureka is excited to announce a local solution to a global problem.
The international recycling market has collapsed leaving states and municipalities changing the collection and allocation of recycled materials. Recycled materials which were previously shipped and sold to China are now stuck in the states with little alternatives for domestic recycling processing and sales.
The City of Eureka is launching a new local glass recycling program to address this very issue.
Currently, glass containers are differentiated by CRV and non-CRV. CRV stands for California Redemption Value. CRV containers charge an automatic deposit at time of sale which is redeemable when turned back into a CRV collection location. Eureka residents should continue to bring their CRV glass to Humboldt Waste Management Authority (HWMA) for redemption or place into their Recology recycling totes. This new program is specifically for non-CRV glass.
The self drop-off program will have three bin locations spread across Eureka of which all are free and accessible 24/7.
The locations include:
Eureka Municipal Auditorium (1120 F Street)
Highland Park (dead end of High Street off of McDonald Street),
Adorni Center Public Parking Area (southeast corner of L and Waterfront Drive)
Southwest Rotary raised funds at their Martini’s on the Bay Event to purchase new fencing, while Mercer Fraser donated a new surface overlay of the basketball courts and adjacent access path, and Hamanaka Painting donated new striping for the court.
Join us this Saturday for a special ribbon cutting of the courts, and help us celebrate the community coming together to help rehabilitate Highland Park!
The ribbon cutting takes place noon at Highland Park.
