Ocean Beach is experiencing long term erosion and the area at Sloat Avenue is a particular hotspot. During the winter of 2010, the bluff here failed and caused the road to be shut down to one lane. The San Francisco Chapter is working to minimize the impacts of the short-term response to this erosion and to advocate for a long-term response that incorporates managed retreat strategies to preserve the beach at Sloat. The current vehicle for this advocacy is the Ocean Beach Master Plan, which was recently completed. At this juncture, the chapter is now working to support implementation of this plan.
