Balloon Track update coming
Councilman Jeff Leonard noted the September 10th deadline on a last minute public comment period for the plan, and asked for an update at the following council meeting. Because five days should be plenty of time for staff to conclude the plan is the greenest thing since environmentalism was invented.
Leonard has an important history with Arkley’s dream of retribution against Pierson’s Building Center by hatching a Home Depot where nobody wants it — near the shores of Humboldt Bay. He did Arkley’s bidding on the City Council in 2004 by killing a master plan study after learning Arkley wanted to buy the property. The incident led to Arkley’s famous comment:
If you’re me, do you really care what the city thinks? I don’t want to have an alternate plan out there because it might not be what I want.
Or maybe Jeff is working to cull campaign favors from the man who once called him “worthless.” After all, Leonard is hoping to unseat Arkley’s archenemy on the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors.
