NIMBY Initiative on the Ballot?

Rob Arkley is back at it again! This time with a new ballot initiative that would block new affordable housing in downtown Eureka and rezone the former Jacobs Middle School site for dense housing. (To be clear: more density is great! But Eureka City Schools, which owns the site, has already turned down an offer from the city to purchase the lot and California Highway Patrol is deep in negotiations to purchase some of the land.) Jen Kalt of Humboldt Baykeeper and Matt Simmons of EPIC join the show to discuss Arkley’s previous ballot initiatives—whatever happened to the Marina Center?—and the consequences of the ballot initiative should it pass.
