Restoration Authority Featured on OpenRoad with Doug McConnell
Doug McConnell and the OpenRoad team spent time looking at the Authority and the important work being done with Measure AA funding. The full episode can be viewed here.
The voters of all nine Bay Area counties passed regional Measure AA by a 70% margin in 2016 to spend $500 million over twenty years to restore 15 ,000 acres of San Francisco Bay’s tidal wetlands. We’ll see our tax dollars being used to improve the health and well-being of the Bay’s water quality and wildlife, protect vulnerable shoreline communities from flooding as the climate warms and sea levels rise fast, and provide greater public access to a bayshore on the mend and a measure of environmental justice to long-neglected neighborhoods.
