Should Humboldt County be re-zoned into a northern coastal county, a northern inland county comprising of Hoopa, Weitchpec,extending east to Trinity County, and a southern county comprising of Shelter Cove to Redway/Garberville to Island Mountain and north to Blocksburg and Zenia and to extend north to a city along the Avenue of the Giants?
It seems that a large coastal city may have been a poor choice of a county seat for such a vast inland region with it's own communities that have no relation to northern Humboldt or Eureka. Resource extraction must have been the order of the day when the county lines were surveyed and drawn up. Would dividing Humboldt County into regional counties be like moving mountains?
I am constantly reading in the paper and online from the Sheriff himself that Humboldt Law Enforcement is too stretched, the DA's Office case load is too large, the county doesn't have enough resources to provide services. Well then restructure it and let the tax bases decide what is important to their regional areas. The Indian Tribes are capable of operating their own Law Enforcement and Judicial systems without the Humboldt County Court. Rural communities need people in their closest towns to provide civil services, not officials in a city one or two hours away doing so.

This is a great video to watch beforeor after you pay your yearly county property taxes, or government lease. True wisdom.
