Thanks to all of you who were able to attend Nossaman’s Coastal Law Conference last week. If you missed the event, I provided an update on sea-level rise, managed retreat, and potential eminent domain / regulatory takings issues in California. Specifically, I touched on:
- The projected impacts to private property and public infrastructure as a result of sea-level rise
- The general powers and limitations on the Coastal Commission
- Coastal Commission concepts on dealing with sea-level rise, including managed retreat, sea-walls/armoring, and beach replenishment
- Concerns with potential eminent domain, regulatory takings, and precondemnation damages
- Potential defenses under the Public Trust Doctrine and state nuisance laws
- Best practices to minimize liability associated with sea-level rise planning
In addition to my presentation, we also had some great other topics involving sea-level rise / shoreline management options, public access and coastal development permitting, legislative updates and infrastructure funding opportunities, and coastal litigation and case law updates.
You can find all the presentations here.
