Information regarding the City’s work program to address sea-level rise, coastal flooding and storm surge as part of a Local Coastal Program amendment is available at www.delmar.ca.us/sealevelrise.
The Sea-Level Rise Stakeholder Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) was established in 2015, (Resolution 2015-10) for the purpose of working with City staff and a technical consultant to assist with the preparation of an amendment to the City’s Local Coastal Program (LCP) to address sea-level rise and coastal flooding impacts to the City.
Since September 2015, STAC members have worked tirelessly with staff and consultants to develop Del Mar’s Coastal Hazards, Vulnerability, and Risk Assessment, Adaptation Plan, Sediment Management Plan, and Wetland Habitat Migration Assessment to plan for and address projected sea-level rise, storm surge, coastal flooding, and erosion hazards in Del Mar. On May 21, 2018, the City Council approved the Adaptation Plan, as supported by the associated technical reports (Vulnerability, and Risk Assessment, Sediment Management Plan, and Wetland Habitat Migration Assessment) that were completed with input from STAC. On September 4, 2018, the City Council passed Resolution 2018-56, dissolving STAC.
