On the eve of its 20th anniversary, the mood at the California Coastal Commission is anything but joyful. The commission, buffeted over the last decade by severe funding cuts, now finds its budget slashed another 15% by Gov. Pete Wilson. "It's a hell of an anniversary," said Commission Executive Director Peter Douglas, noting that his agency, which traces its roots to a voter-approved 1972 initiative, may have to lay off 10 of its 110 staff members.

The California Coastal Commission has turned down a request by Long Beach to limit parking in the Marina Park area, commonly called Mothers Beach, saying it would reduce public access to the beach. Residents of the Mothers Beach area in Naples have long complained about people who avoid paying to park in the 162-space lot by parking for free on residential streets. In response, the Long Beach City Council recently voted to establish one-hour parking, with permits exempting residents.

Nine years after he created an artificial reef off the Balboa Peninsula out of 1,500 tires, the Coastal Commission has denied a French aquaculturalist the permit for the project he should have applied for.

Assembly Speaker Willie Brown removed Robert Franco of Del Rey Oaks from the 12-member California Coastal Commission. Franco, who was originally appointed by Brown, was a key supporter of the commission's embattled executive director, Peter Douglas. The commission is scheduled to vote Friday on whether to fire Douglas. There was no indication whether Brown would replace Franco by then. Brown's office has said only that he would like to name an ethnic minority or woman to the post.
