Hayward Shoreline Adaptation Master Plan launches website and public comment form

May 18, 2020

Today, we launched a new website to gather public input on the Hayward Shoreline Adaptation Master Plan by June 12th.

The shoreline of Hayward, CA is a mosaic of diverse bayland ecosystems, habitats, and critical infrastructure – supporting a mix of tidal marshes, salt ponds, filtration marshes, storage ponds, diked wetlands, landfills, solar fields, and biosolids drying beds.

In collaboration with the Hayward Area Shoreline Planning Agency (HASPA), SCAPE has been working to develop a Shoreline Adaptation Master Plan to study the effects of sea-level rise and other environmental stressors on this bayland environment and develop a roadmap for adaptation to future climate impacts.

Our new website for the project that summarizes the team’s work to date – including videos to explain the Master Plan; maps; and detailed discussion of design alternatives developed by the team. In the absence of in-person public meetings, we are seeking input from community members and stakeholders through a comment form at the bottom of the page – which will remain open until Friday, June 12th.

Check out the new project website and submit your thoughts – we want to hear from you!
