The City of Oceanside, CA, said in its latest announcement that the first community workshop in support of the Local Coastal Program (LCP) Update will take place on Thursday, November 8th, in the City Council Chambers (300 North Coast Highway).  

The workshop will begin at 5:30 pm with an open house that includes staffed stations addressing LCP topic areas, online survey results, the VA, and possible coastal hazard adaptation strategies.

During the open house, participants will be walked through the VA map exhibits that illustrate the extent of inundation anticipated under different sea level rise scenarios.

The second hour of the workshop will be devoted to brief presentations and a whole-group discussion.

We have invited Julie Kalansky, Ph.D., Program Manager and Post-Doctoral Researcher at Scripps Institute of Oceanography, to discuss the scientific basis of the sea level rise projections that inform the VA. Dr. Kalansky is scheduled to speak at 6:30 pm,” the city said.

Background

The City of Oceanside has initiated an update of its Local Coastal Program (LCP). In support of this effort, the City is seeking input from residents and other stakeholders.

The California Coastal Act requires that all coastal jurisdictions in the state adopt a Local Coastal Program (LCP) to ensure local implementation of Coastal Act priorities, which include protection of coastal resources, preservation/enhancement of public access to the shoreline, etc.

As the potential impacts of sea level rise and associated coastal hazards become more apparent, it is the state’s expectation that Oceanside will study its vulnerability to these phenomena and prepare adaptation strategies.
