The Casa Mira Homeowner’s Association is suing the California Coastal Commission over the denial of coastal development permit to construct a 257- foot seawall to protect a collapsing bluff that fronts Casa Mira townhomes built in 1984. Casa Mira worked tirelessly with CCC staff for three years and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to develop a proposal that met every one of staff’s seemingly endless objections. Coastal staff had recommended approval, but the Commission over ruled and denied the permit. The Trial is set for October in San Mateo Superior Court.

This Draft Guidance focuses on water and transportation infrastructure with a goal of promoting resilient coastal infrastructure and protection of coastal resources. The document provides local governments, asset managers, and other stakeholders with policy and planning information to help inform sea level rise adaptation decisions that are consistent with the Coastal Act. The Commission’s guidance presents five key considerations and makes a series of recommendations.
Strategies include floodproofing, elevating or relocating existing infrastructure and siting new
infrastructure in safer areas. Many of the approaches could broadly apply to other types of infrastructure
such as power plants, gas pipelines and other shoreline facilities.
