California Coastal Commission

I wholeheartedly agree with the decision of the California Coastal Commission that will allow the badly needed construction of the San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor. The Coastal Commission and our Orange County commissioner, Linda Moulton-Patterson, recognized that the minimal damage the road does to a flood control channel is far outweighed by the benefits it will have, such as much-needed jobs in the county and improving air pollution (faster moving cars pollute less)

The California Coastal Commission wants three miles of coastline north of the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant opened to beachgoers. The commission staff is recommending that plant owner Pacific Gas and Electric be required to provide public access within two years if the commission approves plans to build a storage facility for the plant's radioactive waste. PG&E declined to comment until the commission's public hearing on the proposal Wednesday in San Francisco.

A property rights attorney who has spent much of his career challenging the California Coastal Commission is now asking the U.S. Supreme Court to declare the commission unconstitutional in its structure. Ronald Zumbrun, representing the Marine Forests Society, petitioned the Supreme Court after losing his case at the state's highest court in June. He argues that the commission, which regulates development along the state's 1,100-mile coast, violates the state Constitution's separation of powers.

Critics plan to ask the California Coastal Commission to block construction of a bluff-top residential and commercial project. The City Council voted 3 to 2 late Monday to approve Harbor View. More than 100 people attended the nearly four-hour debate. Negative comments ranged from fears that the buildings would ruin the city's character and drive away tourists, to allegations that the project would violate the city's bluff-top protection laws.

In recent weeks the Rancho Palos Verdes City Council has complained loudly and pitifully about the "raw deal" that they got from the California Coastal Commission when the commission rejected on Aug. 12 the Hon/Zuckerman housing and golf course project near the San Pedro border. Mayor John McTaggart trashes the California Commission as " . . . a bureaucracy out of control." In childish and petulant terms, McTaggart says, "The Coastal Commission has treated cities like dirt for years."

Monterey County Supervisor Dave Potter has been reappointed to the California Coastal Commission. A member of the panel since 1997, Potter mounted a heavy push to keep the seat controlled by new Assembly Speaker Herb Wesson (D-Los Angeles). The speaker appoints four of the 12 commissioners, including one county supervisor or City Council member from the Central Coast. Potter said he was concerned the new speaker would give the seat to an official from Santa Cruz or San Mateo counties.

A judge sentenced former California Coastal Commission member David Malcolm to 120 days in a work-furlough program for violating state conflict-of-interest laws. Malcolm pleaded guilty to a felony charge stemming from the fact that he was a $20,000-a-month consultant to Duke Energy while helping the company win a contract from the San Diego Port Commission. Malcolm was a member of the commission at the time.
