GIS Coordinator Brian Kang has been with the City of Arcata for 17 years. What's GIS? It’s a map tied to a database. Thanks to Brian, people can go online, type in their address and see if their home sits in a flood zone or check out their property's zoning. Brian's map making skills helped the City garner about $16 million in grant funding to more than double its open space acreage in 18 years.Our People...Our Community...Ourcata

Big thanks also go to RSVPs Maureen McGarry, who kept everyone well fed with delicious fish tacos for lunch. You're all amazing!More about Saturday's volunteer work day
