Planning for a Resilient & Thriving Imperial Beach
What is the project and why are we doing the IB CRP?
As a low-lying coastal community that is bounded by water on three sides, the City of Imperial Beach is vulnerable to natural hazards such as coastal flooding that can disrupt the resident’s daily lives and local business operations. Flooding may also reduce City services and impact critical infrastructure. The State of California encourages cities to plan and prepare for projected increases in the impacts from coastal flooding and inundation.
The Imperial Beach Community Resilience Plan (IB CRP) would create an adaptation management and monitoring plan/program that include strategies to address flooding impacts, encourage nature-based solutions, and adequately addresses the needs of residents that currently experience flooding are projected to be substantially impacted by future coastal flooding.
