WELCOME TO F STREET!
We are a residential neighborhood located in the Rosewood neighborhood of Eureka, CA. We are tucked between the Henderson Center and the Eureka Municipal Golf Course. This busy little street that runs though our neighborhood and includes hundreds people, families, and pets, a corner market, an elementary school, an assisted living center, an auto repair shop, and two churches.

The No F Street Super Corridor Group formed after getting inconsistent responses from the county and city regarding increased speeds, increased traffic, decreased property values and chronic traffic accidents (especially at Oak & F).
Redwood Community Action Agency conducted a Walkability Study in 2011 that recommended a safety light at that time but instead the county chose to install partial recommendations for a school crosswalk.
In the last decade, Holly Street in Cutten has received speed bumps for a small price while Rex Bohn’s Baseball Field at Fern & Walnut received a safety light without having to meet the same criteria. The Department of Transportation Guidelines are clear that Oak & F qualified for a light and pending that expense, 4-way stop signs. As we’ve been told “red tape” has gotten in the way of protecting our lives, our property and those passing through, our Group has come together to demand something be done and to educate others of their risks.
A Petition with 242 signatures demanding immediate mitigation occur was sent out on August 24, 2020. The area continues to be ignored while other projects receive more attention: The Municipal Golf Course, Eureka’s Grand Entryway, Broadway to name a few. We await our Representatives to schedule a community meeting to move forward in this process.
We hope you’ll join us in expecting our Representatives to do their jobs by keeping us involved in the process, and mitigating the issues that have developed due to a decade of neglect.

The residential areas of F Street have seen a dramatic increase in both the volume and the speed of traffic.
It is unacceptable that this corridor has become the de facto bypass around Eureka without public input or proper review and planning.
We who live in this neighborhood often see cars going nearly 50+ MPH in this residential area while semi-trucks, logging trucks and dump trucks use this as a bypass around Broadway/Hwy 101 creating noisy, unsafe conditions, and decreasing our property values.
We the community who has been effected by decisions impacting our neighborhoods demand:
- City and county leaders meet, and continue to meet with the neighbors in this area and immediately implement a plan to address these safety issues.
- Update the Redwood Coast Action Agency Walkability Report that was conducted a decade ago.
- Neighborhoods along F Street will be properly notified with timely notices BEFORE making decisions, having meetings, or making any changes proposed to the Eureka F Street Super Corridor.
- A consult with a professional third party, for unbiased, scientific studies of the area.
The neighborhoods along this corridor have endured these conditions far too long. It is time that we are heard and our concerns are addressed.
