Significant Ecological Areas Technical Advisory Committee (SEATAC)

Significant Ecological Areas Technical Advisory Committee (SEATAC) is a group of members from the private and public sectors with a range of expertise in ecology and habitat restoration. The members are appointed by the Planning Director. The committee meets the first Monday of each month to review developmental projects in SEAs (Significant Ecological Areas) designated in the general plan and local coastal plan mandates. The mandate of the SEATAC is to conserve SEA resources by developing as viable and natural a condition as possible without treating the areas as preserves and prohibiting development. SEATAC aids the County in creating compromises that recognize the competing priorities of resource conservation, other critical needs of the public, and the development desire of private property owners. The Committee identifies significant biological resources and recommends necessary measures to support preservation, restoration, and enhancement that enable development compatible with the SEA resources.
