The future of Hayward's shoreline, which is threatened by rising tides, will be the subject of a presentation to the Hayward Rotary Club on June 10 from Devan Reiff of the Hayward Area Shoreline Protection Agency.

The organization was established in 1970 and is a joint powers agency consisting of representatives from the City of Hayward, East Bay Regional Park District and the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District. It has completed a long-range master plan that identifies adaptation measures to prepare for sea level rise, ranging from natural solutions, such as wetland restoration, to man-made improvements, like levees and sea walls.
Through the efforts of HASPA and its member agencies, over 3,150 acres have been purchased for public ownership, preserved, restored, or are in the process of being returned to wetlands, marshes, and protected uplands. 
Reiff is a principal planner with the East Bay Regional Park District.
Current chair of HASPA is Hayward City Council Member Francisco Zermeno.
