Please join us in hearing about Marin Resilient Shore. A project by major stakeholders to resolve long-standing flood risks to communities along San Francisco Bay. This requires out-of-the-box thinking and fundamental change to the current way of doing business. Reality today is one of multiple jurisdictions, turf wars, inflexible regulations, single-minded environmental advocacy, and fragmented land ownership. Addressing flooding and adaptation for climate change is virtually impossible. All involved with bay and wetlands issues recognize the current system is broken. Fundamental change is required to face existential threats to human settlement, agriculture and wildlife. At stake are billions of dollars of public infrastructure, private property, sensitive habitat and wetlands.
Even if you think you “know it all”, this lunch is sure to present you with something useful to your company if your firm gets, or wants, work in the wetlands or flood control area.
