For the past 18 months, SPUR led an in-depth inter-agency public process to develop a master plan for Ocean Beach. This national park, including 3.5 miles of open coast on the western edge of San Francisco, has been subjected to repeated episodes of erosion. These conditions are likely to worsen with climate-induced sea level rise, leaving a major complex of infrastructure in harm’s way. Join Benjamin Grant from SPUR and Alma Du Solier from AECOM to discuss the plan’s vision for addressing a host of overlapping challenges.
