Humboldt County is experiencing a housing shortage at all levels, from high-end to affordable housing. The governments of Arcata, Eureka, and Humboldt County, in partnership with the Redwood Region Economic Development Commission, are hosting this fair with the goal of stimulating the construction of new ADU housing units. In pursuit of this goal, these local government jurisdictions are committed to making the permitting process as easy as possible. Additionally, they are committed to providing education and outreach to property owners, starting with this fair. As a first step, these local governments partnered with Planwest Partners to host a two-day fair focusing on Accessory Dwelling Units or “ADUs." The fair is designed to help homeowners learn everything they need to know in order to finance, permit, construct, and manage an ADU.
