Say No to Public Land for Private Profit!

County must follow rules for harbor development.

October 12, 2017, the Coastal Commission told the County of Ventura, “The rules apply to ALL“. For over a year the County has resisted the basic, normal process required of any development on the coast.

COASTAL COMMISSION DENIES COUNTY AND SENDS FISHERMAN'S WHARF PROJECT BACK TO CITY

October 13, 2017 at a Coastal Commission meeting in Chula Vista, City Attorney Ken Rozell, appearing on behalf of the City, and members of HBCA won a clear victory at the Coastal Commission when the Commission agreed that the Harbor Department and County could not by-pass the City’s jurisdiction. The County had sought to have the Coastal Commissioners over rule the Commission’s Executive Director’s determination that the Public Works Plan Amendment required review and approval by the City prior to the Fisherman’s Wharf project moving forward.
