Issue Summary Outcome

Sonoma Coast State Park Fees The Department of Parks and Recreation (the Department) is seeking to install pay stations at 15 locations along the Sonoma Coast. In 2013, the Department submitted a proposal to the Board of Supervisors to install the pay stations. The Board unanimously denied the application saying it would undermine sections of the LCP and Coastal Act that require public access. Upon the denial, the Department appealed to the Commission. The Commission held a ‘Substantial Issue” (SI) hearing to determine if SI existed and if the application should ‘go back’ to the local level or stay under Commission jurisdiction. Red Dot.png
