Who:  City of Imperial Beach residents and interested parties
What:  General Plan / Local Coastal Plan Community Workshop
Where:  Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve Training Center
When:  Thursday, January 11, 2018 from 6 PM to 8 PM

The City of Imperial Beach invites its citizens and interested parties to participate in an update to its General Plan/ Local Coastal Program (LCP). The City completed a Sea Level Rise (SLR) study in 2016 through a grant from the State Coastal Conservancy and the San Diego Foundation. The City obtained another grant from the California Coastal Commission to translate the SLR adaptation strategies and mitigation measures to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions (that would form the basis of a Climate Action Plan (CAP) into LCP policies. The City hired the consulting firm of AECOM to assist the City with this project.

The first meeting will be a Community Workshop to be held at the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve Training Center (301 Caspian Way, Imperial Beach, CA 91932) on Thursday January 11, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. AECOM has prepared a draft set of amendments to the LCP that will form the basis of the revised Land Use Plan (LUP). Following an introductory presentation, there will be breakout stations where citizens are encouraged to offer comments and pose questions on the draft documents.

A future notice will be provided about a Joint Study Session of the City Council, the Design Review Board, the Tidelands Advisory Committee, and the Parks and Recreation Committee to be held at a date and place yet to be determined. Members of the Joint Session will also review the proposed amendments along with any comments that may be provided by the public at the Community Workshop. 

The draft LCP LUP is posted on the City’s webpage link: 2018 RIB CAP/LCP/GP Update For questions, please contact Jim Nakagawa, City Planner, at jnakagawa@imperialbeachca.gov or 619-628-1355 or at the City of Imperial Beach, Community Development Department, 825 Imperial Beach Blvd., Imperial Beach, CA 91932, or Nancy Bragado, Principal Planner AECOM at nancy.bragado@aecom.com or at 619-610- 7739.
