Public Input Needed for Coastal Erosion Plan

Public Meetings in San Francisco on July 12th and Pacifica on July 19th

The Association of Bay Area Governments and the Coastal Sediment Management Workgroup invite the public to attend a meeting, on July 12th in San Francisco or on July 19th in Pacifica, to provide input on a Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plan, which is being developed for areas located between Fort Point in San Francisco and Point San Pedro in Pacifica.

The focus of these meetings will be to:

  • Describe erosion issues affecting ocean beaches and coastal infrastructure, such as parking lots, highways, structures, storm drains, and sewage outfalls
  • Present implementation options (proposed solutions, such as beach nourishment, multi-purpose reefs, armor, allowed erosion, and managed retreat) and concepts for a regional plan
  • Solicit public comments on plan concepts

The public has the opportunity to attend one of the following meetings:

Thursday, July 12, 6:00-8:30pm
SPUR 2nd Floor Public Assembly Hall
654 Mission Street, San Francisco
Exhibition opens at 6:00, meeting begins at 6:30


Thursday, July 19, 7:00-9:00pm
