The Strategy outlines an internal framework for how to incorporate sea level rise considerations into projects and plans along the coast. Driven by science and state guidance, as well as growing impacts to the existing 128 coastal state park units, State Park’s Strategy recommends actions to build sea level rise considerations into existing department planning and project development processes. The Strategy calls for holistic vulnerability assessments and adaptation planning for unique types of state park assets, including public access and recreation, natural resources, cultural resources, and park facilities. The most recent science, guidance and adaptation approaches have been included in the Strategy, including the state’s recently adopted Sea Level Rise Principles.
