Comments are due by July 3
The Coastal Commission just released their staff report for the upcoming meeting on Thursday, July 11.
The staff report is now available on the Commission’s webpage here:
The California Coastal Commission Staff is recommending closure of the Oceano Dunes SVRA:
“In short, the status quo at ODSVRA is clearly not sustainable and it is time to more fully understand and evaluate other public access and recreation options that are consistent with coastal resource protections given the current realities that affect and are affected by OHV activities at this shoreline location. Put simply, in staff’s view a Park that is fully consistent with on-the-ground realities, and with coastal resource protection requirements, does not include OHV use. Rather, it is clear to staff that the significant coastal resource issues and constraints attributable to OHV use render long-term OHV use at this location untenable.”
