Got it, Richard. You didn't need those links. Sorry for assuming.
What about moving Highway 1 inland 50 yards, through the Strip? Seriously.
That'd give more recreation area and parking on the coast side of the road.
Let the next generation figure out the long-term solution. Maybe they'll have to move the road inland too.
Richard, My humblest of opinions is that, there is no such thing as, "restore and stablize this coastal system."
Try these links (all safe):
Sweet little map:
Gary Griggs writes about the eroding seacliff and the breakwater, beginning on this page:
General Info on man's attempts at "Coastal Armament:"
Down here in the San G, the winds were almighty terrific! Both up on the ridgeline at a friend's house and down at my own, tucked on the leeward side of a ridge, the winds blew non-stop. When the gusts blew hard, I'd check wunderground and found wind gusts clocked at 50 to 60 mph, with a wind speed consistent at 30 mph all day. Wind sounds different when rushing through pines vs. redwoods. Higher pitch in pines. Redwood tree bases do not move, even when the upper half of the trunk is tossing about.…
They accept the law until it applies to them. And true, throughout the U.S., but it seems that the CCC bears extraordinary criticism over any other regulatory agency in the U.S., yes?
That's just it, Dan. Folks understand that they will be told what to do on our public roads, but don't accept that public laws apply to what they (can or can not) develop on their private California coastal land.
Objective or not, to live on California's coast is to understand that there is no such thing as Private Property, whether that be to clear and use an old wagon road (as described in this article), or to build Coast Highway through one's ranch (Rindge Co. v. County of Los Angeles).
You don't cleanly make a point, so I'm gonna ask, "What's your point, Jack?"
Please don't speak for me, nor refute my words. Everything I said is true. I would rather put my money, that I earn on the other side of the hill, into the economy of this side of the hill.
Word: "They chase the tourist dollar as a means to fiscal viability." I grew up in the most touristy of all touristy California Beach Towns: Laguna Beach, yet that town sustains its residents' needs with grocery stores, clothing boutiques, and frozen yogurt shops, while still providing commercial space for art galleries, t-shirts, and knick-knacks. In Laguna, commercial rents are reasonable-enough to allow small businesses to make a living. Small business employ the locals. Teens have after-school…
Nice! Great idea. Thank you.
And sad but true: "...one cannot ignore the likelihood that these placements may over time be vandalized, abused, or simply stolen."
18 months is like dinosaur eras in internet time. =]
We need to move to 3 columns. 2 wide, 1 narrow.
Just a humble suggestion, of course. ;)
Thanks for posting this Barry. I'm off my notification rocker right now. Too much to do, not enough time. :) For anyone thinking of showing up to help: Join Surfrider San Mateo County Chapter of Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter, and the LIVE 105 Action Team for another beach cleanup, Sunday July 5th from 12noon--2pm at Montara State Beach in Montara for our annual post 4th of July cleanup! We’ll provide gloves and bags (but if you want to bring your own, go for it!) plus there’ll be free tickets…
So you'll be there Carl? :)
It's difficult not to comment.
Kevin, your post reads Sunday April 19th, do you mean Saturday, April 18th? Saturday April 18th is the Pacifica Beach Coalition Earth Day Party from 12 to 2. If any of you are itching for a Saturday Beach Clean-Up, come to Poplar: SURFRIDER SAN MATEO COUNTY CHAPTER EARTH DAY BEACH CLEANUP POPLAR BEACH - SAT APRIL 18 - 9 to 11 a.m. Run the sign-in table! Hand-out the gloves and bags. Arrive at 8:45am to be in on the Core Volunteer Training and learn how to help out at future events! We’ll provide…
. . . and then there is the non-stop traffic on Highway 1 adding to the cacophony. Saturday morning about 10 a.m. the traffic noise appears, then 11 a.m. the sirens screaming north or south to rescue those in trouble. After the sun sets we finally return to quiet coastside. Didn't we move out here for the peace and quiet? Perhaps we should post one of those high-wind advisory notices in advance of a beautiful weather weekend, to confuse the would-be visitors into not coming over the hill? That way…
I am soooooo tired of the cold wind blowing. Bring on Summer 2009! Oh. That's drippy and foggy, right? Okay, bring on September and October!
A good example of how Prop. 84 funds have been spent: Assemblyman de Léon tapped Prop. 84 funds to restore urban parks and help low-income communities purchase land so that they may also enjoy open space. This is a statewide benefit for communities "most in need" of parklands, not just communities within de Léon's district. Since many grassroots and environmental groups had endorsed Proposition 84, once these groups hear about Yee's proposed use of the funds, (to bail out a city to pay off a developer),…
... then acreage in Half Moon Bay is listed at a higher price point than anywhere else along the California coast:
Palo Corona Ranch (Monterey County) sold for:
Rancho Cojo/Jalama (Santa Barbara County) sold recently for:
A coastal property in Mendocino County is currently listed for:
The nearest-to-the-ocean acreage (within 10 miles) in San Diego County is currently listed at:
Beachwood would sell for:
Coincidentally, this quote also applies to us Residents (well, not the limo part), who shop the stores every week, helping businesses long before and much longer after, than the Ritz Carlton visitors shop: "“If the sidewalk looks crummy, that affects business,” she said. “Our city has a Ritz Carlton Hotel. We have to keep ourselves looking great. The people who stay at the Ritz Carlton get dropped off downtown in a limousine, and they expect nice things when they get here. They expect a certain…
