Update from Kate 

You Are Invited to A Community Gathering About
Marin’s Bay Shoreline Vulnerability To Sea Level Rise


Marin’s Bay Shoreline Vulnerability


Marin County staff have been working for the last year to develop an assessment of what is vulnerable to sea level rise along our bay shoreline. There will be three community meetings in April - please come and learn more, and play the award-winning "Game of Floods" with your neighbors. The report is now available and can be viewed on our website at http://www.marincounty.org/main/baywave/vulnerability-assessment 

One of these meetings will be held in southern Marin on April 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Mill Valley Community Center.

The vulnerability assessment catalogs impacts of six different sea level rise scenarios across the entire bay shoreline.  The report is a starting point for understanding of the risks posed and to help set the stage for developing solutions. 

As we engage in this planning effort, there are things we can do such as ready our households for emergencies, reduce our contribution to greenhouse gases by carpooling and riding transit, step up to MCE’s Deep Green energy product and by supporting local environmental organizations in their efforts.  To learn more, please visit the website at www.MarinSLR.org. If you wish to provide written comments on the Vulnerability Assessment, please send them to Chris Choo at cchoo@marincounty.org or at Marin County Department of Public Works, PO Box 4186, San Rafael, CA 94913.

Please share this information with friends and neighbors and be sure to sign up to stay posted on this vital effort. As always, you’re welcome to write me at ksears@marincounty.org.
