Adopt policies to support coastal protection


In order to strengthen the city’s coastal defenses effectively, policies must be aligned and adopted to support the right investments in coastal protection and ensure those investments are operated and maintained effectively.
As new assets are built, it will be necessary for the City to have a more effective management plan for waterfront assets. To address this need, the City will continue to upgrade its waterfront management tools and fund citywide waterfront inspections to assess and better manage its assets.

The City will also explore new governance models to support the completion and long-term operation of integrated coastal resiliency measures, based on national and international best practices.
