As stated in the Climate Action and Resiliency Plan (2019), the northern shoreline of Alameda by the Posey and Webster Tubes is a high priority adaptation project in that it is a low-lying area.

The purpose of this agenda item is to request City Council approval of a resolution allowing City staff to proceed with the Caltrans-funded planning grant for the Oakland-Alameda Estuary Adaptation project to develop a concept. The project webpage is www.alamedaca.gov/ShorelineWebsterPoseyTubes.
