In the summer of 2013, the City of Half Moon Bay began updating its General Plan and Local Coastal Program (GP/LCP). Half Moon Bay’s small town character, scenic vistas, fertile farm fields, and coastal bluffs and beaches, make it one of the jewels of the central coast. It is also home to over a dozen special status species. Much of its shoreline is vulnerable to Sea Level Rise. How Half Moon Bay addresses these challenges will have a major impact on the future of our region. The Coastal Act requires the protection of environmentally sensitive habitats, scenic vistas, and agricultural lands, as well as avoiding hazards to new development from flooding and sea level rise. The new GP/LCP must comply with these mandates.
Our Goal: We are working with coastal advocates in Half Moon Bay to ensure that Half Moon Bay’s new plan fully complies with the Coastal Act, especially its policies requiring protection of environmentally sensitive habitat areas and farmland, avoiding hazards, and ensuring public access to the shore.
