  2. Our architect and consulting engineer continue to negotiate with the City of Arcata regarding Zoning Use Permits and a Coastal Development Permit. The primary issue is the interface of the use of the District property and Old Arcata Road. The City is working with us on this topic and progress has been made. We will be required to incur a cost from our bond funds for sidewalks and curbs. At this point, the cost to our bond is estimated to be roughly of $80,000.
  3. The local tribal historian reviewed our Project One and Project Two plans. We will be required to work with a cultural anthropologist in the event we discover any cultural artifacts. We have received a proposal from the cultural anthropologist and are awaiting a contract from him.
  4. Our architect presented preliminary plans for Project Two to our Facilities Improvement Committee (FIC). The committee is currently reviewing those plans.
  5. The Superintendent is monitoring the budgets for Project One and Project Two. There are items currently in Project Two that will have to be cut. After bids come in for Project One, we will have a better idea what how much needs to be cut. At that point we will obtain input from our FIC and report to the Board and the public.
