SB1 Case Study: San Francisco Bay Trail Risk Assessment and Project Prioritization Plan



East Bay Regional Park District




The East Bay Regional Park District developed the San Francisco Bay Trail Risk Assessment and Adaptation Prioritization Plan (SF Bay Trail RAAPP) to provide detailed risk assessments of the segments of the San Francisco Bay Trail owned and/or managed by the East Bay Regional Park District. The Park District's resulting plan evaluated sea level rise related climate vulnerability and adaptation strategies and prioritized projects based upon sea level rise risk and timing, coupled with Project co-benefits to protect infrastructure, habitat, and provide resilient non-motorized commuter and recreational corridors. The plan also identifies implementation and funding phasing strategies to guide Park District investments and improvement projects. The project began October 2018 and a final Plan was published April 2021.
