Major emphases of the 2040 General Plan include improving the City’s quality of life, incentivizing and stimulating new development, stimulating the City’s economy, strengthening the City’s role as an economic center for the region, and enhancing its role as a great place to work and do business. The 2040 General Plan also highlights the importance of fiscal resiliency and efficiency while working to retain and expand existing businesses and increase investment in job opportunities in Eureka. To achieve these goals, the 2040 General Plan is structured to be flexible enough to adapt to changing conditions, while specific enough to provide predictability and consistency in guiding day-to-day decision making.
