On July 20, 2017, the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission voted to initiate two amendments to the San Francisco Bay Plan. The first amendment would address the ramifications of climate change by updating several sections of the Bay Plan, including Fish, Other Aquatic Organisms and Wildlife, Tidal Marshes and Tidal Flats, Subtidal Areas, Dredging, Protection of Shorelines, and, potentially, Public Access with new findings and policies. The second amendment would address social equity and environmental justice by updating several sections of the Bay Plan, including Public Access, Shoreline Protection, and Mitigation, and by adding a new environmental justice section with new findings and policies.
The descriptive notice adopted by the Commission set May 3, 2018 as the date for the public hearing on the proposed amendment. Notice is hereby given that the public hearing on the proposed amendments will be held instead on November 15, 2018.
