Belvedere is an idyllic place to live, but we face challenges ahead. Our existing shoreline protection is too low to protect our community from major storm events and sea-level rise, and is seismically unsound. Our two access roads, and the utilities buried underneath them, are catastrophically vulnerable. Crossing our fingers and hoping for the best is not an option.
We want to start the conversation now about what our plan of action should look like to keep our community safe while enhancing the shoreline. Solutions will require spending well in excess of our City’s current budget and will require new sources of revenue. With critical public assets at risk, it is in all of our interests to reach consensus on an equitable fix.
