The City of Arcata is one of several local jurisdictions to receive state grant funding to develop sea level rise policies for its upcoming Local Coastal Program (LCP) Update, which governs coastal development within certain areas of the city.

This study session is an opportunity to get up to speed on which areas of the city are most at risk  and will feature a discussion of various approaches for adapting to future changes to our shoreline as the sea rises. 
Topics to be discussed will include:

     ~ Background on Tides and Sea Level Rise

     ~ Sea Level Rise Projections and Policy Implications

     ~ Current Conditions and Adaptation Strategies

     ~ Pathways for Public Engagement

  1. A public comment period will follow the discussion.

Location: Arcata City Council Chambers, 736 F Street in Arcata
