Wonder if any thought to predicted sf bay water level rise is being factored into the development of Alameda Point and Town Center?

Hi Tom: Thanks for your question. The draft infrastructure plan does offer a plan to address sea level rise. The quick and dirty is in the staff report, here: http://alameda.granicus.com/MetaViewer.php?view_id=6&event_id=872&meta_i... and the full draft plan is here: http://alamedaca.gov/alameda-point/current-draft-documents
