The C-SMART project team gathered information from technical advisors, utility managers, and coastal residents about potential sea level rise impacts. The resulting Marin Ocean Coast Vulnerability Assessment summarizes the expected timing and extent of impacts, laying a foundation of knowledge to guide adaptation planning. CDA staff presented the assessment to the Planning Commission on November 9
and to the Board of Supervisors on November 17. Thank you to everyone who submitted public comments
. We are currently processing them and making improvements to the Vulnerability Assessment.
