Forest Management Committee

The Forest Management Committee was established in 1999 by the adoption of Ordinance No. 1292, replacing the Forest Management Advisory Committee which was established in 1981 by the Arcata Community Forest/Jacoby Creek Forest Multiple Use Management Plan and authorized by Resolution No. 801-43. The Committee's primary function is to advise Council and Commissions in matters relating to forestry issues within the City-owned forest land, and review timber harvest plans for conformance with the goals and policies of the Forest Management Plan, Monitoring Plan and Recreation Plans. The Forest Management Committee’s powers and duties are outlined in Arcata Municipal Code Sections 2234 to 2237.
