Surfrider’s US Supreme Court win means that property owner Vinod Khosla will have to get a permit to block public access; however, the permitting process can be long and drawn out and may be subject to further litigation.
There is one option for definitively and permanently protecting access, which is to acquire a public access easement.
Tell the California State Lands Commission to commit to pursuing a public access easement at Martins Beach! If you’re unable to attend the hearing, please let the California State Lands Commission know that you support this option by sending a letter or submitting comments on their website. You can find the meeting agenda here.
We hope you’ll join us on October 18th!
