Coastal Commission recommending closure of Oceano

ACTION NEEDED: Oceano could close forever

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.” 

Coastal Commission has provided an email address where people can send their comments:

The report is for the next California Coastal Commission meeting to be held on Thursday, July 11 at the Embassy Suites in San Luis Obispo. 

We need comment letters submitted to the Coastal Commission before July 8th.

We need club members, friends and anyone who enjoys Oceano Dunes SVRA to write a comment letter and attend the CCC meeting and speak out against anymore closures.

This really could be the end of the park as we know it. We need to flood the Coastal Commissions with comment letters support the park and make sure the room is packed the July 11th Coastal Commission Meeting.

Please share this information with anyone who will listen.

The time to act is NOW… or risk seeing it close forever…
