Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Marina Center, Eureka, California
EIR outlines alternatives to Marina Center

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the seventh in a multi-part series looking at the Marina Center development. The next installment, running Tuesday, wraps up the series and looks at what's next in the process.

According to the Marina Center draft environmental impact report, Security National's proposed mixed-use development is not a take-it-or-leave-it proposition. Security National, however, might feel differently.

As a part of the draft environmental impact report, or EIR, the city was required under the California Environmental Quality Act to determine and evaluate a "reasonable" range of alternatives to the proposed project.


Security National purchased the Balloon Tract, a 43-acre former Union Pacific rail yard overlooking Humboldt Bay in 2006, and is proposing to build a more than 500,000-square-foot mixed-use development that is slated to house a new home for the Discovery Museum, office space, dozens of residential units, restaurants and almost 300,000 square feet of retail space anchored by a Home Depot.
