Managed Retreat meeting, tomorrow Saturday, September 15, 2018


Picture
Environmentally sensitive
area KEEP OUT
Message from "Your Pacifica Neighbors" website: No Retreat for Pacifica.


CRITICAL:  join us Saturday, September 15 from 12 Noon until 3 p.m. at the Community Center for the Public Workshop on Draft Local Coastal Program ( LCP) Policies. This is a public meeting with public comment--please be there early! 

-------------------

Reference. "Your Pacifica Neighbors" website home page:  No Retreat for Pacifica. "Before you make up you mind, check out... the other side of the story.... Yes, global warming is real. Nobody here is against preserving beaches. But there is another side to the story, a flip side to the coin. How well do you know the proposed 'Local Coastal Program' for Pacifica? Have you noticed that it describes managed retreat without using the actual words 'retreat'? How many studies have you seen about the effects of managed retreat? There's fewer than you might think."  Note the photograph of a "Keep Out" sign planted in local open space is by Mo Blaze.  

Signs are available. Email wags903@msn.com for one.
