Humboldt Bay Area Plan Update Workshop #3
Discuss Sea Level Rise and Tsunami Safety
for the Humboldt Bay Area
Tuesday, March 26, 2019, from 6 to 8 PM
Climate Change, Sea Level Rise and Tsunami awareness affect all of us who live and work along the coast. Humboldt County has previously conducted workshops on this topic, and another one is scheduled. The Humboldt Bay area is viewed as being particularly susceptible to both sea level rise and tsunami impacts. The county will be considering policy changes to address these hazards. It is important for people who live, work, or own property along the coast to be aware of the hazards and participate in the policy development process.
Humboldt Bay is experiencing the highest rate of relative sea level rise on the West Coast. Rising seas could result in recurring flood events affecting large areas of the Humboldt Bay region. Tsunamis also pose a significant threat to people and development around Humboldt Bay. The workshop will provide information on sea level rise and tsunami risks in the Humboldt Bay area, and present draft policies that could be adopted to address those risks. Information on Humboldt Bay sea level rise and tsunami safety planning is available on the County’s website.
The public workshop to discuss Sea Level Rise and Tsunami Safety Planning, and gather public comments, will be held on:
Tuesday, March 26, 2019,
6 to 8 PM
Humboldt County Agricultural Center
5630 South Broadway
All members of the public are encouraged to attend. For more information regarding the workshop , please contact Lisa D. Shikany at (707) 268-3780, firstname.lastname@example.org.
