Surfrider San Diego is celebrating an important Coastal Commission decision to preserve California beaches by denying 245 Pacific Ave in Solana Beach a seawall.
The Commission considered an application to fill a ‘gap’ in a continuous stretch of seawalls fronting homes on Pacific Avenue in Solana Beach. The homeowner behind the gap had legally forfeited the right to a seawall in front of their property, and was notably absent from the permit application in what was seen as a group attempt to subvert the property’s deed restriction. In a 7-5 vote, the Commission denied the seawall application.
