[ARCHIVED] County to address sea level rise in vulnerable areas

2016 County Logo 600

On August 9 the Coastal Commission awarded a $50,000 grant to Humboldt County to develop collaborative strategies to address sea level rise for some of the county’s most vulnerable areas – King Salmon, Fields Landing, and Fairhaven/Finn Town.

In the Humboldt Bay region, sea level is anticipated to rise faster than anywhere else in California due to the combined effects of land subsidence and sea level rise.  The grant funding will support public meetings to discuss potential effects of sea level rise, and develop policies and regulations in the Humboldt Bay Area Plan to adapt to the challenges associated with sea level rise.

For more information, please contact Lisa Shikany at (707) 268-3780 or  You can also learn more by reading the Humboldt Bay Area Plan on the county’s website.
