Our Vision of Beach Restoration and Preservation

We advocate a managed retreat strategy to restore both Ocean Beach south of Sloat and Sharp Park. At Sloat, our vision involves:

A long-term plan to relocate threatened infrastructure
(including the south of Sloat Great Highway, the two oceanside parking lots and the sewer lines underneath them).

The cleanup of all the rock and rubble littering the beach.

The use of sand dunes as the primary tool to slow erosion.

For Sharp Park, we advocate the decommissioning of the golf course, the removal of the rip-rap berm, and a full restoration of the wetland.

BOS today at 2PM.

Supervisor Chu adn Mirkarimi were both at last nights meeting and spoke out in support of finding a long-term solution for the coastal erosion problems and were in support of NOT using hard structures (like riprap rock or seawalls). As you can read below, these same issues came up ten years ago and the BOS passed resolutions that required the City of SF to address the coastal erosion and not use hard structures.

The BOS are meeting TODAY at the Civic Center in SF (as we speak) and will be reviewing the Sloat Resolution at 2PM (Item #53). It would be great to have people down there to support a resolution that restricts the use of hard structures (which is currently what the DPW is leaning towards) and encourages coming up with long-term solutions at Sloat.

Sloat is Item # 53 and should be on around 2PM TODAY.
