The December hearing was held in Monterey. There were two important issues on the agenda. One was a “public workshop” regarding low-to-moderate cost accommodations along the coast. View a blog recapping the issue. The second important item was an application for a rock revetment and massive sand replenishment project in Broad Beach, Malibu. After an extensive seven-hour hearing, project proponents pulled their application after it was clear the Commission had major reservations about the sustainability of the project. View a blog summarizing the issue and the lively debate that took place at the hearing. Outside of these two important issues, there were no major “conservation votes” to score this month.
