** There's good news and bad news resulting from the Coastal Commission hearing on 6/13/2013. The good news is that the City did not get the project they wanted. CC Commissioners voted to add conditions to the City's request to build this boondoggle and now, pending further details, the ENTIRE stretch of the path must be built on the inland side of the existing path. The bad news is that this alternative will cost $1.3M more from public Tidelands money due to added construction costs. Those ugly storm drain culverts hitting our beach (3-4 of them along the path route) are owned and controlled by the LA County storm water department folks and with the added "inland condition" it's going to be a major engineering and construction feat to re-do the path bridges that cross over them. This project is still alive and kicking so stay tuned for more information and please get your friends and neighbors to sign our petition. Thank you!

Children and pedestrians would be at risk crossing these wide stretches of roadways on their way to enjoy the beach. Which would no longer be enjoyable due to the unsightly roadway, noise and traffic on their beaches. In addition, no environmental studies have been conducted on the impact of the bike path expansion nor has the public had the proper opportunity to weigh in on the matter. This decision has been quietly pushed through the coastal commission without being properly addressed.
