The Coastal Commission will report out on recent workshops concerning the Local Coastal Program Planning process and Sea Level Rise Planning at their May 11, 2016 meeting in Newport Beach.
Pacific Grove staff are in the final stages of addressing public and Coastal Commission comments on the City’s Local Coastal Program Land Use Plan and will update the Implementation Plan accordingly. Issues that are under discussion with Coastal Commission staff include:
-sea level rise and associated hazard policies concerning erosion and flooding;
-the definition of existing development;
-stormwater runoff and water quality;
-fencing and subdivision in the Asilomar Dunes neighborhood;
-ability to implement a parking program in appropriate areas to fund coastal access and coastal restoration projects.
When available, the revised documents will be posted on the City’s Local Coastal Program website and brought forward to Planning Commission and Council and ultimately submitted to the Coastal Commission for certification. The City’s goal remains to submit a Local Coastal Program that reflects the needs of the community within the context of the Coastal Act
