No earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will conduct a hearing to consideration Local Coastal Program (LCP) Amendments 1, 2, 3, 6, and 7 as modified by the California Coastal Commission (CCC). The LCP is a planning document that identifies the location, type, densities, and other ground rules for future development in the coastal zone. The LCP land use plan and its implementing measures govern decisions that determine the short- and long-term conservation and use of coastal land, water, and other resources. The Community Development Agency asks the Board to consider five amendments approved with modifications by the CCC in November 2016. Many of the amendments will further protect Marin's coastal resources, enhance the County's agricultural economy, respond to sea-level rise and provide clarity about policies and requirements for residents, permit applicants and coastal users.
The Board conducted the hearing and adopted a resolution accepting Amendments 1 and 2, which comprise the entire Land Use Plan (except the hazard policies). The Board accepted Amendment 6 as modified by the Coastal Commission but did not accept modified Amendments 3 and 7.
