Campland and Mission Bay RV Resort - Public Access Enforcement
|Summary||On Thursday, Coastal Commission staff presented the ongoing public access violations at Campland and the Mission Bay RV Resort that have been effectively privatizing bay beaches. The violations effectively walled off public beaches and included documented cases of asking people to move.
The Commission approved the administrative order in cooperation with the violator to: 1) remove unpermitted development, including signs and other obstructions that restrict access to beaches and public parking areas, 2) provide additional public access amenities on the property, and 3) cease and desist from undertaking additional unpermitted development. The levied fines and penalties totaled approximately $1 million.
Commissioners approved the administration order according to the staff recommendation and included two additional amenities in the orders; public picnic tables and bird watching amenities as suggested by the San Diego Audubon Society.
|Outcome Description||Commissioners approved the administration order according to the staff recommendation and included two additional amenities in the orders; public picnic tables and bird watching amenities as suggested by the San Diego Audubon Society.|
