In the Surfrider Foundation Complaint
filed yesterday, Surfrider Foundation cites the violations of the beach
access protections of the California Coastal Act. Specifically, the
property owner cannot add new development or change the intensity of use
of coastal land without a Coastal Development Permit. The development
here comes in the form of new gates, new signage and even the use of
armed guards to deter public access.
Throughout this enduring and multi-faceted campaign,
and now with the new litigation filing, our organization is merely
asking for the long-cherished right to access the beach, as is protected
by the laws of the state of California.
