In news from up the coast … powerful landowners in Santa Barbara County have just been smacked down by the California Legislature.
it’s up to Governor gavin Newsom now to decide on a bill that would open up the pristine beaches of Hollister Ranch to thepublic.
The beaches are 90 miles up the coast from malibu … next to an exclusive enclave of luxury ranches …owned by politically-cnnetcted bighhsots intent on keeping gthe public
AB 1680 requires that the public be allowed to enter the beaches next to the ranch by land by April 2022.
Further access to tidepools and other delicate landscape would be phased in under a comprehensive plan to be developed in the next two years.
The bill also would make it a crime, punishable by tens of thousands of dollars in fines, for any action by a person or group “to impede, delay, or otherwise obstruct the implementation of “public access to these coveted beaches and surf breaks in Santa Barbara County.
A similar measure was rejected a year ago by then-Gov. Jerry Brown, who in his veto message called on state officials to work together on a new public access plan. This year’s bill is stronger and more specific, … the L A Times reports.
We have a link to their story at the KBUU Newswire.
In news from down the coast ... the landmark twin domes of the San Onofre Nuclear power plant are dstimed to be torn down.
The landmarks have triggered generations of sniggering jokes by adolescents.
O C Register story:
When the iconic domes of San Onofre’s nuclear reactors are finally demolished, “significant amounts of foundation, footings, and other existing material” are expected to remain, unseen, beneath the bluff on the ocean — at least until its stranded nuclear waste finds another home. The Coastal Commission is mostly fine with that, but has some concerns.
