Sea Level Rise Developments in Carpinteria

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

The city of Carpinteria recently completed the draft of its sea level rise adaptation strategy. This is part 2 of a larger document; part 1, the vulnerability assessment, came out in August 2018. In each case I offered comments on the city’s draft document; I’m hoping I’ll have a chance to discuss those comments with city officials at the meeting of the General Plan update committee this coming Monday.

My comments on each part of the document are available below:

More information is available in the series of YouTube videos I made on sea level rise in Carpinteria. The full text of the city’s vulnerability assessment and adaptation plan is available on the city’s General Plan update page.
