The Next SPUR Public Workshop

Coastal Access at Sloat

Greetings Surfriders and Friends,

The SPUR website has just posted public comments from SPUR's public workshop number two, the Alternatives Phase. See http://www.spur.org/ocean-beach If you read the comment summary sections, it should become crystal clear why it is so important that people from our community show up, fully informed and ready to participate at these meetings. Again, the next and final SPUR public workshop is Saturday October 29th at the Golden Gate Park Senior Center 6101 Fulton St @ 37th Ave 10am-12:30pm. Please mark the SPUR workshop date on your calendars!

In addition, SF Baykeeper is currently featuring an informative article about sea level rise and Managed Retreat on their website. The piece mentions our plight at Sloat with a quality link to a historical background of the issue. See: http://baykeeper.org/blog/bcdc-approves-amendment-bay-plan-addressing-sea-level-rise
Finally, the Rip Curl Pro WCT contest is coming right on the heels of the last SPUR workshop. Surfrider National and the local chapter will be co-sponsoring the opening party on Tuesday November 1 at the Mezzanine. The theme of the party will be raising awareness of the Sloat issue.
