THE LOCAL PRESS DISCOVERS THE COAST IS HABITAT!
SF Chronicle – expresses “outrage” at political pressure exerted on Coastal Commission regarding Big Sur
For over 3 years, The SF Chronicle has supported putting artificial turf and sports lighting in Golden Gate Park, next to Ocean Beach, with no concern for the impact on the environment or on coastal issues. Now, the Chron is criticizing the Coastal Commission (CCC) for bowing to political pressure and big money regarding actions in Big Sur! See the attached article, “Sean Parker buys a slide from Coastal Commission.”
Write to the Chron and let them know that Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach are important, too, and that the CCC bowed to enormous political pressure in approving the Beach Chalet project, a project which will have long-term damaging impacts on wildlife, on your coast and on your enjoyment of the park and the beach.
