Coastal Commission Wrap-Up / SPUR Meeting Set

Season’s Greetings Surfriders and Friends,

Our appearance at the California Coastal Commission Meetings last week was a smashing success. We would like to thank everyone who took time to comment, whether by coming down to speak or by sending in a letter. By the way, we received well over 140 letters in support of our message to restrict rock armoring at Sloat, and to require clean-up of the rubble littering the beach. The Commission got a clear picture of what is happening down at Sloat, the basic issues involved, and our platform. It could not have gone any better.

We have more news: VERY IMPORTANT!

SPUR has just scheduled the first public workshop for determining a long term plan at Sloat this January 15th, 2011 9am-2pm at the SF Zoo Great Hall. Finally, everyone concerned about the armoring has a chance to be part of drafting a long term solution for the area. Officials from SFDPW, SFPUC, Park and Rec and others will be on hand to hear and discuss this issue as well as other matters involving Ocean Beach. We encourage everyone to attend and provide input. More details to follow.

Thanks again, and Happy Holidays!
