Coastal Commission supports the importance of public access and preserves the roadmap for publicly-accessible wetland restoration in the ReWild area

At their Thursday meeting, the Coastal Commission strongly supported the right of the public to access our shared shoreline, penalizing the company running two RV campgrounds in the northeast corner of Mission Bay for blocking public access in several ways for many years. The Coastal Commission required the company to pay a $250,000 fine and invest more than $750,000 in improving public access at Campland and Mission Bay RV Resort. We can all head to these beaches with public bathroom facilities, interpretive signs, parking, and electric vehicle stations! And the Coastal Commission did all this without building permanent infrastructure, in recognition that the land use in this area will be changed through the City’s planning process. That’s great news for the ReWild project! Read more here.
