Synopsis:  “Arcata Gateway Project: The K Street corridor is a de facto gateway to Arcata, its Downtown, and the Creamery District. It is also low hanging fruit on the post-RDA redevelopment tree. David Loya, Director of Community Development, will discuss how to use planning, stakeholder engagement, and multi-sector alignment to spark community revitalization.”
