A $200,000 Coastal Conservancy grant okayed by the supervisors on 7/1 will allow the county, over the next two years, to look at how climate change could affect Santa Barbara’s coastal areas and seaside infrastructure. County staff will model possible scenarios to pinpoint which spots are most susceptible. The money ​— ​coupled with $50,000 from the county and $22,000 from the Nature Conservancy ​— ​will pay for the first phase of a two-part program, which will focus more on policy; the county will seek out a similar grant for the second phase.
