The City of Arcata is interested in hearing what community members' hopes and priorities are for the future and how residents envision Arcata in the next one, five, ten or twenty years. 

The Community Development Department has worked to develop a Community Visioning Survey for residents and non-residents to share their thoughts on Arcata’s future and provide feedback on how the City can implement their ideas regarding Arcata’s growth and development, neighborhoods and urban form, community engagement and community health, increasing art throughout Arcata, and environmental stewardship and sustainability.

Community feedback received from the survey will be used to help shape the way Arcata looks in the future. 

The Community Development Department has facilitated two virtual Arcata future visioning sessions with members of the public to inform and engage the community on updates to the City’s General Plan policies, which will help guide how the City of Arcata will look, function, provide services and manage resources for the next 20 years. Community feedback gathered from previous events can be reviewed here.

Additional public meetings on the General Plan update will be held through the end of the year and into 2022. Community members are encouraged to sign up for the Community Development Department’s “Long Range Planning & Community Visioning” email notification list to stay updated on opportunities for public comment. Please sign up by clicking here.

The Community Visioning Survey is available in Spanish and in English. Community members who wish to participate are encouraged to do so as soon as possible as the survey will close on Friday, December 31 at 5 PM.
