Huge Victory for Waves at Sloat

Huge Victory for Waves at Sloat

The California Coastal Commission denied permits for additional armoring at Sloat.  This is good news for surfable waves at that end of the beach, and a positive indication for erosion management for all of Ocean Beach.  Here’s the full release from the San Francisco Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation:

7/14/11
For Immediate Release…
Last night, in a unanimous vote, the California Coastal Commission voted to deny SFDPW’s permit application to expand armoring at Sloat.  In commentary leading up to this historic vote, commissioners said that it was time to send a message to the City and County of San Francisco that the era of temporary rock revetments for Sloat is over. DPW was urged to come up with a long term plan that was more sensitive to access, recreation, natural habitat and aesthetics.  The Agency was also encouraged to continue working within the SPUR led Ocean Beach Master Plan process to develop such a long term plan.
