The City of Pacifica is working to modify its draft Local Coastal Plan (LCP) update by incorporating findings of how sea level rise and erosion will impact social, economic, and physical coastal resources including homes, businesses, and critical facilities and infrastructure; and strategies that will prepare the City to deal with these impacts. Support for this effort is provided in part by the California Coastal Commission and the Coastal Conservancy.
