Public meeting in Pacifica on January 21 re: coastal regional sediment management


Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plan 2015-16

The Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plan (CRSMP or Plan) for the San Francisco Littoral Cell (SFLC) is being developed to assist government entities, municipalities, stakeholders, and communities in developing strategies for the beneficial use of sediments to address coastal erosion and storm damage. The Plan will provide information for local and regional coastal decision makers to develop policies and execute management sub-plans for the future vitality of beaches and shoreline areas throughout the Plan area, which stretches from the Golden Gate to Point San Pedro through the adjacent watersheds and includes the communities of San Francisco, Daly City, and Pacifica (see map).
Specific San Francisco Littoral Cell CRSMP objectives include:
  • Strategize to restore and maintain coastal beaches and critical erosion hotspots
  • Reduce the proliferation of protective shoreline structures
  • Sustain recreation and tourism
  • Enhance public safety and access
  • Restore coastal sandy habitats through the littoral cell
  • Address areas with excessive sediment

The Coastal Sediment Management Workgroup (CSMW), a federal-state partnership, is developing the Plan in conjunction with local public agencies, organizations, consultants, and stakeholders.

Draft Plan Now Available For Review

The draft SFLC CRSMP is now available for a 30-day review and public comment period that will close on February 3, 2016.

Maybe Pacifica should hold a meeting about the increased crime?
