SPUR Ocean Beach Master Plan Open House

From SPUR:

Open House on Ocean Beach Master Plan Implementation Projects
When: Saturday May 10, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (drop in for brief presentations noted below)
Where: County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park (near Lincoln Way and 9th Ave) map

Join SPUR, partner agencies, community leaders and consultant teams for an update on projects to implement the recommendations in the 2012 Ocean Beach Master Plan. The plan was developed through a two-year public and interagency process. It presents a series of recommendations to improve coastal access, restore ecological function, and protect critical infrastructure in the face of chronic erosion and sea level rise.

This open house will provide updates on three projects currently underway to carry those recommendations forward. The project teams will be on hand to discuss their work in progress and get your ideas and feedback. Stop by any time from 9am-12pm. Brief optional presentations will provide some background on each project.

1) Coastal Management Framework (9:30 am)
2) Transportation Study (10:30 am)
3) Open Space Design Study (11:30 am)

Each of these will result in proposed projects that are ready for environmental review, permitting, and implementation on the ground over a period of several decades. New trails, a cleaner beach, restored dunes and bluffs, and safer roadways are all being explored, all while protecting public investments in clean coastal waters.

As sea levels rise, big changes are inevitable, but we can work with the changes to make better places for everyone. This award-winning effort is on the cutting edge of adaptive coastal planning.
