The California Coastal Commission, a non-elected body, will be meeting on Thursday, July 11th, at the Embassy Suites Hotel in San Luis Obispo to consider the continued use of the OHV area at Oceano Dunes.
We are, quite literally, in the final phases of keeping or losing our local dunes for offroad use – forever. These efforts may come in a full outright closure or under the guise of a slow erosion of dune accessibility prohibiting night riding, increasing enforcement and adding more fences at the park, reducing daily use limits, and more until a full and eventual closure goes in effect.
