Resilient Imperial Beach Climate Action Plan / Local Coastal Program / General Plan Update
Like many coastal communities, the City of Imperial Beach is facing an increased risk of storms, flooding, and erosion due to sea-level rise. To better understand the risks to the community, the City of Imperial Beach Sea Level Rise Assessment was produced in 2016.
The City was awarded a $300,000 Climate Ready grant (Grant Agreement 13-090) by the State Coastal Conservancy (SCC) on January 23, 2014, to conduct a vulnerability assessment and develop adaptation strategies to address the effects that sea-level rise (SLR) could have on coastal resources along the Pacific Ocean shoreline of Imperial Beach.
Through an Ocean Protection Council Prop 68 grant, the City of Imperial Beach is developing plans to repurpose a 1.2-mile segment of the Bayshore Bikeway corridor into a multi-benefit coastal resilience corridor.
