Half Moon Bay City Council heard a presentation on 3/7/2017 by Nichols Consulting Engineers (NCE) on the Coastal Trail from Kelly to Poplar, followed by discussion (video). NCE has concluded that a substantial amount of erosion in the area is related to stormwater pooling and runoff which is intensified by soil compaction by users on the bluff. The Council will take up the issue again within 60 days to discuss potential next steps.
