No earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will conduct a workshop and hear an update on the Collaboration Sea Level Marin Adaptation Response Team (“C-SMART”) Phase I Completion and commencement of Phase II. Climate experts estimate that sea levels could rise by up to 70 inches by 2100, and the frequency and intensity of storms is anticipated to increase. The County of Marin, acting upon a 2008 Governor's Executive Order, is building resiliency to climate change by taking a thoughtful and sensible approach to adaptation.
Staff recommends that the Board take the following actions:
The Board conducted the workshop, heard the update on C-SMART efforts, and accepted the vulnerability assessment. It also adopted a resolution requesting grant funding from the Ocean Protection Council for a feasibility study for a nature-based green infrastructure project at Stinson Beach.
