About HBCA

What do we want?

WE WANT

Development that is consistent with the Coastal Act and is visitor-serving and harbor-oriented.

WE WANT

Going forward, what is needed is an updated Public Works Plan with a comprehensive Master Plan for the entire harbor.

WE WANT

Going forward, we would like to see a “change” to an open, transparent RFP (Request for Proposal) process at the harbor with open bidding for development that is not limited to apartment developers’ proposals. In addition, when the existing ERNs expire in a year and a half, an open rebidding process should be implemented.

HBCA – who we are

Grassroots organization of volunteers:

  • Our basic mission is to work to preserve and protect rare and public coastal resources like Channel Islands Harbor and its beaches for all to enjoy
  • What makes us different from other community groups is we do not just care about our own neighborhood.
    We care about the general public and businesses and are guided by coastal experts and legal counsel
  • We were 1 of only 3 organizations invited by the California Coastal Commission to speak and make a presentation at the Environmental Justice Policy Hearing in March 2019 when the policy was adopted

Our Story

Harbor&Beach Community Alliance was created to preserve public access to coastal land. We oppose Harbor and Beach development that is not in the interests of the community and the environment. Communicate with local community and government agencies to protect public safety and access.
