Greetings Surfriders and Friends,
By all accounts, the two public meetings went well, though attendance was light.
The good news on the sand project is that the second parking lot will indeed be the focus of the new replenishment work. Also, because of our advocacy efforts, general improvements for the parking lots are now high up on the list of near term priorities.
If you would like to submit your own comments on these and other issues, please do! The deadlne is October 15. Below is a pasted email from SPUR with all the information. Thanks!

Submit Comment on the Ocean Beach Sand Management Project
The Ocean Beach Sand Management Project will gather excess sand built up along the O’Shaughnessy Seawall and place this sand in the erosion hotspot south of Sloat Boulevard. To address the issues of excess sand and sand deficit at opposite ends of Ocean Beach, the National Park Service (NPS) in cooperation with the City’s two departments, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) and Department of Public Works (DPW) propose to transport approximately 30,000 cubic yards (cy) of sand from the overwidened backbeach area in front of the O’Shaughnessy Seawall to the erosion hot spot south of Sloat Boulevard to provide temporary shoreline stabilization and protection for the Lake Merced Transport Tunnel, which connects to a large wastewater treatment facility, as well as the Great Highway. Submit comment here by September 26, 2014.
