Half Moon Bay receives grant to prepare for climate change
November 26, 2013, 05:00 AM

Half Moon Bay was awarded a $70,000 grant from the California Ocean Protection Council to support the city’s Local Coast Program Sea-Level Rise program, according to a city press release.

The LCP supports coastal communities by collecting data used to plan for the effects of sea-level rise associated with climate change. Sea-level rise, extreme high tides, storms and coastal erosion are already impacting California’s coast, according to an OPC staff report.

“The Ocean Protection Council grant is a great accomplishment for our local community and reaffirms our commitment toward updating our LCP,” City Manager Laura Snideman said in the release.

Coastal regions and the effects of climate change impacts differ depending on shoreline structure, land developments and other variables, according to the press release. Receiving the grant will help Half Moon Bay update its land-use practices and coastal planning pursuant to the California Coastal Act, according to the release.

“As a coastal city, we are in many ways on the frontlines of climate change, so it’s vital that we study and plan for any potential impacts,” Snideman said in the release. “The LCP will not only help us achieve this, but also guide all of Half Moon Bay’s land-use planning for the greater benefit of our coastal environment.”
