Garberville Vet's Park under county scrutiny Featured

Written by 

An item appeared on the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors Agenda for their April 16, 2013 meeting which will begin the process of vacating a portion of county owned property known as the Jim DeMulling Memorial Park in Garberville .

The agenda item and accompanying recommendation appeared as quoted below.

"Vacation of a Portion of Redwood Drive (C6B105) and Thomas Drive (6B150), also known as the Jim DeMulling Veterans Memorial Grove in Garberville."

"RECOMMENDATION: That the Board of Supervisors direct staff to prepare the necessary documents for the vacation of a portion of the unused right of way of Redwood Drive (C6B105) and Thomas Drive (6B150)."

According to the document above removing the property, not used for public road purposes, will allow the county to manage the property for non-road related purposes, and could ultimately allow the county to, "lease, license, or sell the property."

The DeMulling Park area, at the Northern entrance to Garberville, has been, and is currently, used as a meeting place, resting area, and refuge for the Houseless, Homeless, Traveler (HHT) population in Southern Humboldt.  At times, however, it has also been the site of incidents of illegal activity and violence, making the continued use of the area by the HHT Community a point of controversy between various factions in the SoHum Community at large.
