State government

• Assemblyman Rich Gordon, D-Menlo Park, introduced Assembly Bill 2516 to establish the Planning for Sea Level Rise Database to be a centrally located source of information on how California is preparing for, and adapting to, sea level rise. 

Over the past year, Gordon chaired four select committee hearings that focused on the impact of sea level rise on coastal agriculture, the fishing industry, tourism, ports and infrastructure, as well as examined the existing authority granted to state agencies. Gordon co-hosted a conference with U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, and San Mateo County Supervisor Dave Pine on the issue in December. 

The Planning for Sea Level Rise Database will be overseen by the Natural Resources Agency, who will be charged with posting the database on its website. State agencies, as well as specified private and public entities will submit information for the database, including: studies, modeling, mapping, cost-benefit analyses, vulnerability assessments and adaptation assessments, according to Gordon’s office.

The bill will be heard in committee this spring.

City government

• The Belmont City Council will appoint a new councilmember instead of holding a special election to fill the seat recently vacated by Christine Wozniak. The council voted Tuesday to begin an application process and allow residents to submit an up to 400-word statement summarizing their interest in the position along with a resume by March 14.
