Billboard blight fight
Humboldt Baykeeper posted (current!) photos of the ugly and illegal billboards along the 101 corridor between Eureka and Arcata, which are now the subject of a lawsuit by the North Coast Rail Authority.
The public is not receiving funds for the billboards and the billboards are obstructing the viewshed of Humboldt Bay’s wildlife and rich ecosystem. The removal of the eight billboards with expired leases will enhance the beauty of Humboldt County and the 101 corridor along Humboldt Bay. Furthermore, the eight billboards with expired leases are within the rail right-of-away and are an impediment to trail development around Humboldt Bay. You can get involved by writing to:
CBS Outdoor Inc. Real Estate Manager Ralph Iannuzzi at 1695 Eastshore Highway, Berkeley CA 94710
