New Seaside School Campus Outside the Tsunami Inundation Zone

CLIENT:

Seaside School District

OVERVIEW:

Seaside is highly vulnerable to a major subduction earthquake and subsequent tsunami event.  Winterbrook is leading the Seaside School District’s application to amend the Seaside UGB to accommodate a new K-12 campus above the tsunami inundation zone.   Winterbrook drafted detailed findings for Seaside land use proposal, and drafted a new I-C Campus Institutional Zone for schools and hospitals.  The Seaside Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the amendment package on August 1, 2017, based on well-organized testimony from the District and community representatives, the consultant team and key state agencies.
