Former Supervisor Jimmy Smith still watching out for Humboldt County from heaven.
"Jimmy had started this project before he left office," Supervisor Sundberg told me. "The creek that has been used as a boundary had meandered in such a way that north and south were not split evenly."
Supervisor Sundberg took the project on and was very happy to see this wish on Jimmy Smith's list come closer to fruition.
Listed below is an excerpt from an email from to Fifth District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg:
Today the Fish and Game Commission authorized publication of their notice of intent to amend sport fishing regulations for razor clams at Clam Beach (scanned and attached). They will change the boundary from “Strawberry Creek“ to a boundary marker and accompanying latitude reading at the county parking lot at the former creek mouth. They will maintain the north/south every other year seasons. They are also making a minor name change (Little River Beach to Clam Beach). In short, it will be like it was before the creek migrated south.
A discussion hearing will be held October 20 (in Eureka at the Red Lion) with adoption hearing on December 8 (in San Diego) and an effective implementation date of March 1, 2017.
