Public beach access is limited by Solana Beach inaction

The Solana Beach Council’s inaction  to repair or replace the public south beach access is limiting public use.  I, along with many other Solana Beach residents, am concerned that the City Council is not working aggressively to either temporarily repair or reopen this important public beach access that has now been closed for more than three months, with no sign of progress.

According to reports in The Coast News, this major access may not be rebuilt and opened for one-two years!  This is a key gateway to the beautiful beach that beckons thousands of surfers and other visitors, as well as those who wish to purchase property. This barrier can discourage some potential visitors from spending time and money in Solana Beach, as well as reduce property sales, all of which provide important tax revenue for the city. Ironically, Mayor Mike Nichols supported a plan that would require the City Council to address “visitor-serving qualities” as the city moves forward: “It’s a win for us because we want people to come to Solana Beach.” (Solana Beach Sun, Feb. 14 2013, page 6).  If so, then this major gateway to the beach needs immediate attention.  I encourage all who enjoy this beautiful beach to request that the Mayor and Council use available funds to make the reopening a priority.

  • What were the odds?
    I think we’d all agree that no one should have to worry about being run over by a motor vehicle in their own shower. I’m a world class worrier but until it almost happened, it never occurred to me to worry that a stolen car would crash through our front fence and stop inches from joining me in the master bath. This wasn’t recent, fortunately, but it comprise […]
