Complete Streets ad war
Republican players in Humboldt County have long used local AM radio station KINS to spread the GOP gospel. So imagine the huffing and puffing at 323 5th Street when environmentalists with the Healthy Humboldt Coalition put an ad over those particular airwaves.
Healthy Humboldt is promoting Complete Streets, a state law that requires cities and counties to include policies in their General Plans that make streets safe for all users, not just motorists.
Development monger Rob Arkley apparently hates bicycles and children who walk to school. In response to the ad he used one of his many “groups” to fire back with pot shots straight outta Fox News, including bellyaches about San Francisco liberals.
Listen to his Humboldt Sunshine ad.
Arkley says Complete Streets is no good for Humboldt County, and seems to think such legally required policies should be omitted from the General Plan Update.
Which is no surprise when you remember that Arkley wants the General Plan Update stopped. At least until Eureka City Council figures out how to make him king.
