San Francisco Bay Conservation & Development Commission (San Francisco Summer Speaker Series, 2018)


July 17, 2018


San Francisco, CA

Hunton Andrews Kurth and the Environmental Law Institute invite you to a complimentary summer speaker series featuring key representatives from environmental regulatory agencies. The series of informal seminars will provide attendees with the opportunity to directly interact with environmental regulators and professionals in the field on the latest issues and challenges in environmental law in California and throughout the western United States.

San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission

The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) is a California state planning and regulatory agency with regional authority over the San Francisco Bay and its shoreline and the Suisun Marsh. Created in 1965, BCDC is the nation’s oldest coastal zone agency. State law requires BCDC permitting for projects that propose to fill or extract materials from the Bay and authorizes BCDC to bring enforcement actions for unauthorized projects. BCDC is also tasked with ensuring maximum feasible public access within the Bay’s 100-foot shoreline band and is at the regulatory forefront of preparing for potential sea level rise in the Bay Area. Our speaker discussed the latest issues and challenges facing the agency and developments in the Bay.
