The Humboldt County Rail and Port Infrastructure Taskforce will be hosting a free informational forum Wednesday at the Wharfinger Building at 5:30 p.m.

The forum will explore many of the important issues regarding the revitalization of a green port in Humboldt Bay, and collect public comment regarding the potential opportunities and challenges that such a project would bring to Northern California.

Special guests will include:

+ A representative from Ports America AIG.

+ A legislative representative from the ILWU (longshoremen’s union).

+ Mitch Stogner, executive director, North Coast Railroad Authority.

+ Humboldt Bay Mariculture industry leaders.

This is the first in a series of public forums that will be presented by RAPIT in an effort to gather broad community input, disseminate accurate information and build consensus regarding the future of the bay.

Future Sessions will include:

+ Defining “green” in port revitalization, a community visioning exercise.

+ Understanding bay ecosystems, challenges and opportunities with port revitalization.

+ The future of alternative energy in Humboldt County.

+ Green port revitalization project status update.

+ Humboldt County and the economics of globalization.
