LA commander visits shoreline communities
Director Matt Roberts, with Carpinteria Parks, Recreation and Public Facilities, right, discusses a CAP 103 study area May 23 along the shoreline with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District commander Col. Julie Balten and supervisory civil engineer Charles Dwyer on Carpinteria Beach, California. “The whole winter berm project was actually developed from a recommendation by the Army Corps of Engineers under FEMA that we do a programmatic response rather than an emergency response, so we began building the berm as a planned and permanent process,” Roberts said.
