The Arcata City Council will hold a public study session on Monday, November 4 to discuss potential recommendations of the Plaza Improvement Task Force.

In response to community outreach and concerns, the Arcata City Council created the Plaza Improvement Task Force in 2018 to help restore the Plaza as the centerpiece of the community. Since its inception, Task Force members have been focused on reaching a wide variety of community members and groups to gather feedback. The Task Force would like to thank all who have shared their concerns and ideas via phone and email, in-person or by taking the Plaza Improvement Survey, where over 800 responses were received.

Community feedback received thus far has been analyzed and will be used to make recommendations to the Arcata City Council on how to improve general safety, promote economic development, upgrade infrastructure, make beautifications and increase events and activities on the Plaza.

On Monday, November 4, City Council members will discuss potential recommendations brought forth by the Plaza Improvement Task Force. Public comment and requests made at this meeting will be reviewed and used to make the Task Forces’ final recommendations.

The study session will take place at 6 PM in Council Chamber at Arcata City Hall, located at 736 F Street. All community members are invited to attend.

Written comments regarding Arcata’s Plaza may be submitted in advance of this meeting by emailing When submitting email requests, please include “Arcata Plaza” in the email subject line. Advance public comment via email will be accepted until 5 PM on Monday, November 4.

City staff and members of the Plaza Improvement Task Force will review all public comments and plan to present their final recommendations for improving the Plaza to the Arcata City Council in December.  For more information, please call 707-822-8184.
