From seawalls to power outages, Belvedere puts focus on preparedness


LOOKING BACK AT 2019: BELVEDERE — Disaster planning remained a primary focus in 2019, with Belvedere pushing through one of its final utility-burying districts and identifying flood fixes for the city’s seawalls. The city was also challenged with a forced power outage that left residents in the dark for three days and revealed gaping holes in Belvedere’s emergency preparedness. Tragedy struck when a Belvedere boy was killed during a boating accident near Angel Island. His father, a wealthy land developer, was the subject of a police investigation following the boy’s death.
