Interactive Housing Inventory Mapping System

This system allows public review and comment about parcels that are included in the County's Housing Inventory. This inventory contains the County's estimates of additional development potential for parcels that have been planned and zoned for residential use. You are invited to comment about any specific parcel, or about the system in general.

We are particularly interested in whether you think we have either under or over-estimated the additional development potential of a given parcel.  Enter your comments and we will review them, provide a response, and where warranted, revise our estimate of development potential.

Please note the accuracy of the GIS Parcel Lines shown in this system varies from location to location in the County. This GIS system is useful for planning purposes but should not be relied upon to determine property, zoning or general plan designation boundaries or be used in any way for project design.    Humboldt County Community Development Services (HCCDS) makes no guarantee of the accuracy or completeness of this data.  It has not been fully reviewed for accuracy and is intended to be used for planning purposes only.  HCCDS assumes no liability or responsibility in the use,  or misuse, of this data.

Important notes about this new system.

  1. This system shows April 2005 parcel housing inventory estimates.

  2. This is a work in progress and we welcome your feedback about the system. If you have comments about the system, please click here.

  3. This system only has development potential information for parcels in the unincorporated areas of Humboldt County, not parcels in the cities of Arcata, Blue Lake, Eureka, Fortuna, Ferndale, Rio Dell, or Trinidad.  Contact each city for information about development potential for those parcels.

Directions for Using the System

Search : To find parcels that are of interest to you, click on the "Search" tab and search by parcel number or by address.
