State Sen. Marian Bergeson (R-Newport Beach) said Wednesday that the California Coastal Commission's warning against beach and parking lot curfews imposed by cities, counties and the state is "unwise" and "a threat to local democracy." The Coastal Commission has warned 73 oceanfront cities and counties--including many in Orange County--that such curfews are illegal without commission approval. The curfews are aimed at curtailing late-night crime on local beaches.

Gwyn, a San Francisco university administrator named to the panel just last Friday. Howard, who has been on the coastal panel since 1987 and is aligned with environmental forces, said she was surprised at the selection of "an individual who has not been on the commission" any longer than Gwyn.

The staff of the California Coastal Commission is recommending that the panel reject a $35-million project to build a golf course and 83 homes in Rancho Palos Verdes on one of the few remaining open coastal bluffs in Southern California. Plans for the 258-acre development fail to meet state laws requiring public access to the coast and wildlife habitat protection, the commission staff said in a report released Thursday.

In a decisive victory for its top official, the California Coastal Commission on Friday voted unanimously to retain Peter M. Douglas as executive director. The 10-0 vote followed weeks of behind-the-scenes efforts by two of the 12 coastal commissioners to oust Douglas from the $70,000-a-year post. Commissioners David L. Malcolm and Mark Nathanson were said to be unhappy with Douglas' performance and were reportedly angered by his opposition to legislation that would permit the Walt Disney Co.
