Historic Eagle House, 139 2nd Street, Eureka, CA, 95501, United States.

For nearly a century, the California County Planning Commissioners Association (CCPCA) has been hosting its general conference in counties all over California. These events provide a unique educational and networking opportunity for planning commissioners from around the state, as well as planning staff, local elected officials and others with an interest in planning.

This year, for the first time, the CCPCA Conference comes to California’s far north coast. The 2021 conference will be hosted by Humboldt County and will take place in and around Eureka, on scenic Humboldt Bay.

Friday’s events will take place in the lovely and historic Eagle House Ballroom in Old Town Eureka. In the morning sessions, we will explore the many ways that legal cannabis has intersected with the planning and regulatory process. Humboldt County has been on the leading edge of that planning effort for five years, and our speakers and panelists reflect a diversity of perspectives on that experience. Friday afternoon, our sessions continue with a featured panel focussed on the challenges of affordable housing, including tribal and developers’ perspectives. We’ll also have a CEQA update and an overview of the duties of a planning commissioner. Following the conclusion of the Friday program, participants can explore Old Town Eureka and the Friday Night Market while getting dinner on their own.

On Saturday, participants will travel by bus to several stops on an all-day field trip that features a tour of a legal cannabis farm, a visit to the city of Arcata’s Cannabis Innovation Zone, and a look at both existing and planned affordable housing developments in the Eureka area. The tour will feature a lunchtime stop at the historic Samoa Cookhouse.

Finally, our Saturday program concludes with a banquet dinner featuring a keynote speech by State Senator Mike McGuire. Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to learn more about cannabis and housing planning in Humboldt County and beyond.
