Document Description
This project funded San Mateo County Flood and Sea Level Rise Resiliency District to 1) develop plans, designs, environmental review documents, and permit applications for a sea level rise and flood resilience project along Millbrae-Burlingame shoreline and 2) to conduct regional planning and coordination activities throughout San Mateo County. The Millbrae-Burlingame shoreline project includes conducting studies and collecting data necessary for design and environmental review (e.g., elevation and land surveys, geotechnical data, hydrologic, and hydraulic, and information on listed species), conducting stakeholder and community outreach, developing design plans, and preparing draft environmental documentation under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) & likely under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and preparing regulatory permit applications. The regional planning and coordination component will expand OneShoreline’s capacity to plan and coordinate partnerships and projects across the 20 City jurisdictions and unincorporated areas along the Bay and Pacific Coast of San Mateo County. This component will identify and align new regional projects for shoreline resilience and habitat restoration, and facilitate enhanced coordination within San Mateo County and neighboring Bay Area counties.
