I think instead of "Managed Retreat," we'll see "Headlong Flight." And nobody in charge will admit that anyone told them about it.

Nature-denying Realtors: "How long can you tread water?"

Our lack of local leadership is shown again.

Sue, nobody is saying "let it go and forget the people." What they are saying is "let's look at all the options and make a reality-based decision."

Really there is no comparison between Pacifica and Marina. There are very few businesses and NO homes in Marina west of the highway. So the "real estate interests" should just say let it go and forget the people, the properties, the city infrastructure, the businesses and say let it all go? I don't live close to the ocean, but I care about the people who do, and you will see that people who live far from the ocean don't care about the people. Why is this about REALTORS? It is about people.

Good article. The reality-based attitude reported on in Marina is rare, but then, it is not a rich community. Here, we have many signs declaring "No managed retreat," as if the Pacific Ocean will listen to us.
I would suggest that the next City Council, hopefully one not dominated by real estate interests, would be looking at this difficult problem.
It will not be favorable to people living in the path of rising sea level, which is coming soon.
