ADAPTING GROUND

Provide new strategies for adaptation of the San Pablo Baylands in response to sea level rise to protect sensitive habitats and maintain critical biodiversity.

PUBLIC ACCESS SCOPING REPORT

GOALS

• Establishes baseline conditions of public lands, open space, water recreation, and trail facilities within the San Pablo Baylands between Highway 101 and I-80.

• Identifies opportunities and constraints for land and water-based trails and recreation between Highway 101 and I-80.

• Identify sensitive habitats by type and location and ways to protect them through careful siting and design of trails and public access.

• Provide Bay Trail alignment options detailed enough to inform the SR 37 environmental review process.
