September's hearing was held at Humboldt State University in Arcata. The highlight of the hearing was the approval of a project based LCP amendment for the Big Lagoon Park project. This project is an admirable example of not only effective coordination between the Commission and an applicant, but also of planned retreat - relocating structures away from the parcel's bluff as preemptive planning for the area's changing coastline.
