What do YOU think? Citizen Opinion by Cindy Worley
Will ecotourism such as the trails project bring the younger crowd to Eureka and if not, what else should we do to attract them?
Sounds like a fun thing to do to go on the trails and see the scenery.
Put more shops focusing on younger people and what they like.
I do think so because younger people like to exercise.

They should add a bike trail and have things open at night like a bar-cade.
Bike trails would be nice because young people and students enjoy biking.
Yes, I think it will bring the younger crowd, they seem to be more in tune with nature.
