The Coastal Regional Sediment Management Plan for the San Francisco Littoral Cell (SFLC) is being developed to assist government entities, municipalities, stakeholders and communities in developing strategies for the beneficial use of sediments to address coastal erosion and storm damage.
The Plan will provide information for local and regional coastal decision makers to develop policies and execute management sub-plans for the future vitality of beaches and shoreline areas throughout the Plan area, which stretches from the Golden Gate to Point San Pedro through the adjacent watersheds and includes the communities of San Francisco, Daly City and Pacifica.
Specific San Francisco Littoral Cell CRSMP objectives include:
- Strategize to restore and maintain coastal beaches and critical erosion hotspots;
- Reduce the proliferation of protective shoreline structures;
- Sustain recreation and tourism;
- Enhance public safety and access;
- Restore coastal sandy habitats through the littoral cell;
- Address areas with excessive sediment.
The Coastal Sediment Management Workgroup (CSMW), a federal-state partnership, is developing the Plan in conjunction with local public agencies, organizations, consultants and stakeholders.
The CSMW will hold two public meetings in January to present on the draft Plan’s purpose and contents, answer questions and solicit comments.
The meeting times and locations are as follows:
- San Francisco – Thursday, January 14, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, United Irish Cultural Center of San Francisco, 2700 45th Ave, San Francisco, CA 94116;
- Pacifica – Thursday, January 21, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, The Little Brown Church, 1850 Francisco Blvd, Pacifica, CA 94044.
