The City of Del Mar, California is working on a plan to adapt to Sea Level Rise caused by Climate Change. City planners must get the plan approved by the California Coastal Commission in order to implement the plan; however, the Coastal Commission and the City do not agree on the way Del Mar should adapt to Sea Level Rise.
Del Mar does not think a managed retreat (where the City would buy properties from homeowners as well as a relocation spot.) will work as their properties are more expensive than the surrounding area and the City could not afford the amount necessary to buy the properties.
I wanted to highlight the difficulty of preparing plans like the one discussed during this episode.
