Overview of Development Services Divisions

  • The Planning, Zoning, and Community Development Division facilitates development projects, zoning administration, FEMA floodplain administration, long- and short-range City planning, design review, historic preservation, environmental review and permitting, changes to the City Zoning Code, the General Plan Update, and annexations.
  • A community cannot flourish without affordable, adequate shelter for its citizens.  The City works to ensure that all residents have access to the variety of housing options needed to thrive and prosper in Humboldt County.  Through our Housing Programs, we strive to see that our neighborhoods are well cared for and maintained. 
  • The City of Eureka Economic Development Division is dedicated to creating jobs, stimulating the growth and expansion of business, and improving the quality of life in Eureka.  The links below provide map-based information about parcels, zoning, land use, parks, utilities, historic preservation, and dozens of other topics.
  • The Property Management Division is responsible for all the operational activities of City-owned real property in accordance with established real property procedures and policies.  Property Management includes managing real property leases, sales and acquisition, determining and adjusting base rents and coordinating inspections, while maintaining and enhance all properties. Property Management ensures all properties are being utilized to achieve the highest possible benefit to the City and community.
  • The GIS Division serves as the lead for enterprise GIS development and data distribution.  The division deploys GIS technology for City of Eureka, other municipalities and the public.  GIS at the City of Eureka is used to support data driven decision making, as well as support projects of all kinds that occur in and around our geographic area.
