Belvedere pushing ahead with plans to upgrade seawalls

Belvedere is moving forward with a multimillion-dollar plan to shore up its seawalls, with city officials indicating a design concept may be approved as early as next month — though it appears to have abandoned a pledge to hold a series of public forums dedicated solely to collecting feedback on the proposed project and how to fund it. The City Council voted last June to accept a number of recommendations for further study, with officials saying a series of public forums would be held in fall. Those forums never happened, but, in the meantime, a firm has produced conceptual renderings, the draft plan has been revised twice, and the City Council is on target to approve the recommendations in a matter of weeks — at which point, officials say, the plans will then be hard to change.
