Seaside School Campus Outside the Tsunami Inundation Zone

Seaside is highly vulnerable to a major subduction earthquake and subsequent tsunami event.

Winterbrook led the Seaside School District’s application to amend the Seaside UGB to accommodate a new K-12 campus above the tsunami inundation zone. Winterbrook drafted detailed findings for Seaside land use proposal, and drafted a new I-C Campus Institutional Zone for schools and hospitals.

The Seaside Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the amendment package, based on well-organized testimony from the District and community representatives, the consultant team and key state agencies.
