|Beach blight south of Sloat |
It's time to move forward with long-term plan.
The next meeting of the Coastal Commission is now set. It will be held up north in Santa Rosa on May 9 - 11. Typically the North Central District agenda comes up on the second day which would be May 10th. The agenda has not officially been posted yet. We'll update this post when it becomes available. Here is the official link to the Commission's hearing page.

In the mean time, please draft an email letter to help with the campaign. We will post the email link when it appears with the May agenda. Here's a sample to get going:
I _____ (hike, surf, fish, enjoy etc.) Ocean Beach. Today I am writing in support of the Local Coastal Plan amendment to address the erosion issue south of Sloat. By relocating the road and parking lots, the rock can be removed and the beach properly restored. At the same time, I am concerned that the proposed Westside Pumpstation upgrade could hinder our efforts to pursue additional managed retreat in the future. Due to the effects of climate change and sea level rise, managed retreat of the wastewater infrastructure will eventually be needed to preserve this stretch of Ocean Beach.
