Workshop #3

Existing Conditions and Sea Level Rise Report and Revised Draft 2019 Coastal Hazards Vision and Goals Statements

The City Council held the project’s third joint public workshop with the Planning Commission on the Local Coastal Plan (LCP) Update at a special meeting on September 12, 2019 at 6:30 pm in the City Council Chamber at 211 Hillcrest Avenue in Marina. All interested persons were invited to attend and participate in this workshop. Notices of the workshop were mailed to all property owners within the City’s Coastal zone as well as any interested parties.

The purpose of the workshop was to update the City Council and the Planning Commission on the work to date for the Update and to introduce a more refined draft of the Existing Conditions and Sea Level Rise Report and the revised Vision and Goals Statements.  This workshop focused on the introduction of draft adaptation strategies and policy changes to improve preparedness, avoid hazards, and examine natural protection measures to reduce the risks projected to occur over time that have been incorporated into the Existing Conditions and Sea Level Rise Issues Report. This adaptation planning process represents the next opportunity for Marina to lead the State and the Country on how to effectively adapt to sea level rise.   Following City Council review of the revised draft at the next workshop, staff will forward the final versions of the documents to the California Coastal Commission (CCC) staff and will be posted to the website.
