If you think you've got a snazzier name for our local airport than the current lame "Arcata/Eureka Airport" moniker than speak up now, citizen! In a press release issued today, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors announced it is seeking public input for a new airport name. Send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One caveat: the board really, really wants the new name to include the words "Humboldt" and "Redwoods." So, seemingly, "Bob Marley Memorial Airport" is out. Good luck, wordsmiths!
Full press release below:
The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday decided that the County will explore the idea of renaming the Arcata-Eureka Airport, and they invited the public to submit their thoughts and possible names for consideration. One of the goals of this project is to make the airport easier to find for those interested in coming to Humboldt County.
The Board of Supervisors agreed that the County’s glorious Redwood trees are a feature that sets this area apart from others and draws significant interest from visitors. In addition, the public has shown interest in incorporating the County’s name into the airport’s title. The Board of Supervisors is requesting that the airport’s name include the terms “Redwoods” and “Humboldt.”
If you would like to submit your ideas for the airport’s new name, please send an email to email@example.com. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 26.
