UPDATE, 5/1/20: Following well attended public meetings on Sea Level Rise Adaptation held in Stinson Beach and Point Reyes Station (February 2020), staff continues ongoing coordination with project consultants and advisory committee members as the Tomales Bay and Stinson Beach adaptation studies progress. Public workshops to present possible alternatives and obtain public input are expected to occur in early Fall. Contact Leslie Lacko.
