Description September's hearing was held at Humboldt State University in Arcata. The highlight of the hearing was the approval of a project based LCP amendment for the Big Lagoon Park project. This project is an admirable example of not only effective coordination between the Commission and an applicant, but also of planned retreat - relocating structures away from the parcel's bluff as preemptive planning for the area's changing coastline.

Issue Summary Outcome
Big Lagoon Park This application was for a redesignation and rezoning of portions of a 13-acre parcel to allow for relocation of 14 cabins away from the parcel’s bluff. The modifications to the amendment include the point that there will be no resulting increase in development potential, and that the relocation shall not result in a later need for construction of shoreline protection devices having substantial impacts on the natural landform.
