What should downtown Humboldt look like, next year and 10 years from now?
Those are pretty heady questions, but something city leaders and members of the ISG planning team are trying to wrap their hands around.
That’s why the city of Humboldt hosted two downtown revitalization sessions at the Humboldt Community/Senior Center last Wednesday.
The first was for downtown business owners. About 30 people attended and organizers reportedly received “a lot of good input,” from the community businesses.
The second session was for the general public and was more sparsely attended, with about 10-12 people reviewing plans and offering opinions.
Councilman Joel Goodell said whatever course of action is pursued, he wants all people in the community who have thoughts on the matter to be heard.
Another community meeting is planned for March to get more citizens involved.
