Most concerns involved the financial impact of the fees and fines on residents and visitors and the consequences of OPDs on limiting access to the beach.

Many also spoke to the larger threat posed to the housing and commercial properties by hypergentrification and the criminalization of homeless along the coastline. All were encouraged to attend the upcoming CA Coastal Commision meeting on June 13th in Long Beach and write letters to members of the CCC.”
